Intel Core i9-14900KS: An Actual 400W Breakfast Maker

Oh, Intel, you’ve really outdone yourself this time. The Intel Core i9 14900KS, a desktop processor designed for LGA-1700, is setting new standards in the world of computing. And by “standards,” we mean power consumption.

On a side-note, you can play games as well as have a lovely steak made perfectly

The Intel Core i9-14900KS CPU has made its appearance several times, with its listings popping up on various online retail sites and purported images of the chip surfacing as well. A recent leak, originating from OCCT and noticed by Benchleaks, has essentially revealed the intricate details of this soon-to-be-released chip.

Core i9 14900KS Pure Performance and Induction Cooking?

The i9 14900KS boasts 24 cores and 32 threads, providing unparalleled multi-threading capabilities. This processor operates at a base frequency of 3200 MHz, but thanks to Intel’s Turbo Boost technology, it can reach up to 6200 MHz. That’s right, folks, you can now cook your breakfast on your PC.

Advanced Technology or Advanced Power Bill?

The i9 14900KS features a 36MB shared L3 cache, enhancing its performance by reducing the time needed to access frequently used data. It also comes with integrated Intel UHD Graphics 770, offering robust graphics performance for a variety of applications. But let’s be honest, you’re going to need a nuclear power plant to keep this thing running.

Power and Efficiency or Just Power?

Despite its powerful performance, the i9 14900KS maintains efficiency with a 10nm transistor size. It has a maximum TDP of 150W, which can be boosted up to 253W. But wait, there’s more! This beast can consume up to a whopping 400W. Who needs an induction cooker when you have the i9-14900KS?


Details about the cooling system used for the Intel Core i9-14900KS CPU remain undisclosed. However, it’s known that the chip was put to the test on an MSI MAG Z790 Tomahawk WIFI motherboard, complemented by 32 GB of DDR5 memory. Given the tendency of Core i9 chips to generate substantial heat, it would be prudent for potential users to invest in top-tier cooling solutions. While the retail launch date of the chip is still under wraps, the recent leak suggests it might hit the market soon. The price point is expected to align with that of its predecessor, the Core i9-13900KKS CPU.

The Intel Core i9-14900KS is a testament to Intel’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in processor technology. Or maybe it’s just a testament to their commitment to pushing your electricity bill through the roof. Either way, it’s set to take the computing world by storm. And by “storm,” we mean a power surge.
