In terms of single-threaded performance, the Intel Core i9-13900KS CPU offers a 15% improvement over the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X and a 5% improvement over the Core i9-13900K. In multi-threaded tests, the CPU offers an 8% improvement over the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X and a 3% improvement over the Core i9-13900K. This is not that much of a significant gain over the Core i9-13900K but the gold silicon will make it a very enticing CPU for extreme overclockers and enthusiasts.

Now the Core i9-13900KS won't come cheap and will definitely cost a premium of $100 to $200 US over the Core i9-13900K while also consuming much higher power. But that's why the chip will mostly be a limited production run and quantities won't be the same as the standard Core i9-13900K CPUs. The CPU is slated to launch on the 12th of January next year.
