Intel is teasing 5.5GHz clock speeds for Core i9-12900KS

Last month, we shared a rumour about Intel releasing a pre-binned version of the i9-12900K. Named i9-12900KS, this new SKU would come with an all-core maximum clock speed of 5.2GHz, but according to a tweet from the chip company, it looks like the maximum single-core might be slightly higher, set at 5.5GHz.

In its latest tweet, Intel teased that 5.5GHz processors are coming. Alongside the tweet, Intel also shared a screenshot showing HWiNFO running, reading an undisclosed processor reaching 5.5GHz processors on a single P-core, while the remaining P-cores were clocked at 5.2GHz.

Whether this is a Raptor Lake processor or the rumoured Core i9-12900KS is unclear, but the latter is the most likely considering the rumours. If this is indeed the Core i9-12900KS, we can expect equal or even higher clock speeds from the flagship Raptor Lake processor.

Today, Intel will hold its CES 2022 press conference, where we might learn more about this processor, which is rumoured to launch in Q1 2022. The live stream will start at 6PM GMT if you're interested in seeing it.

KitGuru says: We may see some very impressive speeds if all the rumours around the Core i9-12900KS pan out.
