Intel Core i9-14900KS Draws up to 409W at Stock Speeds with Power Limits Unlocked

It looks like Intel’s upcoming limited edition desktop processor for overclockers and enthusiasts has been put through a stress test and the results are quite interesting. The Core i9-14900KS will draw up to 409W of power at stock speeds with the PL2 power limit unlocked. This was discovered by HKEPC based on an OCCT database result. The processor was put through the OCCT stress test which saturates all of the CPU cores and the PL2 or maximum turbo power limit was set to unlimited / 4096W in the BIOS. The chip does allows for 56 seconds of maximum turbo power at a time and this power was measured at 409W.

The Intel Core i9-14900KS will have a maximum P-core boost frequency of 6.20 GHz and E-core boost frequency of 4.50 GHz, which is 200 MHz and 100 MHz higher than its predecessor, the Core i9-13900KS and the current Core i9-14900K, respectively. The base power value of the chip is 150W, this is the minimum power the processor can draw under load.

No word on when Intel will be releasing the Core i9-14900KS. We did expect to see it back in January at CES, but we are still waiting for an official release from Intel.
