K Gaming The 12th Gen Intel® Core™ i9-12900KS is the World's Fastest Desktop Processor at 5.5 GHz Intel® Core™ i9-12900KS Intel® Core™ i9-12900KS is a special edition of Intel® Core™ i9-12900K, with even better frequencies. Max Turbo Frequency is the maximum single-core frequency at which the processor is capable of operating using Intel® Turbo Boost Technology and, if present, Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 and Intel® Thermal Velocity Boost. Intel® Thermal Velocity Boost (Intel® TVB) is a feature that opportunistically and automatically increases clock frequency above single-core and multi-core Intel® Turbo Boost Technology frequencies based on how much the processor is operating below its maximum temperature and whether turbo power budget is available. The frequency gain and duration are dependent on the workload, capabilities of the processor and the processor cooling solution. For more details on Core i9 12900KS specifications, refer to ark.intel.com. Based on the Max Turbo Frequency of the 12th Gen Intel® Core™ i9-12900KS at 5.5GHz, which is the highest for any Desktop processor. As of March 2022
