Intel has taken to Twitter to showcase an upcoming 12th Generation Alder Lake processor that flexes a 5.5 GHz boost clock. Although the chipmaker didn't reveal the exact model of the chip, the numbers align with the rumored specifications for the Core i9-12900KS.
The Core i9-12900K is already one of the best CPUs on the market, but the Core i9-12900KS will surely blow it out of the water. The former has a 5 GHz all-core boost clock but varies depending on the workload. The Core i9-12900KS has a 200 MHz or 4% higher boost clock than the current Alder Lake flagship right out of the gate.
