Intel announced that the Core i9-13900KS processor is now available for sale and that it is the fastest desktop computer in the world. Healer.
Supercharged version 13900 kRaptor Lake’s flagship was absent at CES 2023, which was oddly enough. But it was It was later spotted at online retailersThe show was broadcast in Europe and Asia shortly after it aired, which led to us believing that the show would soon be released.
We already knew the specs of this processor, and that it’s up to 6GHz out of the box—no overclocking needed—so the only detail left to fill in was the official recommended price, which Intel has now given us.
So for those with chunky wallets, the MSRP is listed at $699 in the US (about £575, AU$1,000 – but don’t expect the currency conversion to reflect regional pricing, naturally).
Note that the main turbo clock speed of 6GHz is compatible with Intel’s TVB (Thermal Speed Boost), which means it’s only a short-term boost while temperatures allow.
An overclocker’s dream, no doubt
TVB is a limited facility. The 13900KS will not run at 6GHz for as long as stock. But it’s still amazing that a desktop CPU can reach that speed automatically. Enthusiasts can take advantage of this feature. overclockThe chip performs almost exactly the same when properly cooled, reaching clocks undeniably faster and possibly setting new records.

Given the price, you can hardly call it cheap, but its Alder Lake equivalent—the 12900K—hits the shelves costing $739, so at $699 for the 13900K it’s actually 5% cheaper.
This peppy flagship was expected at about the same price as Alder Lake KS, if not a bit more. We were happy to find that it’s a pleasant surprise. (Not, of course, that it’s remotely affordable—but you wouldn’t expect that with a limited edition Core i9).
Of course, being a limited-edition CPU—and very likely a target for speculators—we don’t know if the 13900KB will actually sell at MSRP. He could fall prey to inflation and price gouging right out of the gate.
