Intel's Core i9-14900KS Processor Confirmation

The upcoming Core i9-14900KS processor from Intel has been verified through a series of insider leaks and premature retail listings. An "alleged" example of the processor was photographed and shared online at the beginning of 2024. French e-tail listings provided evidence of two packaging options: a traditional retail box version and a barebones tray option for OEM purposes.

Today, the I_Leak_VN social media account posted proof of a single "Special Edition" box located in an unnamed Vietnamese warehouse. It is unclear whether these units have made it to retail facilities or have just arrived in Southeast Asia. This leak seems to support global insider information and rumors about distribution networks receiving stock, possibly in anticipation of a rumored mid-March launch.

According to VideoCardz, Vietnamese customers can expect to pay around $765 for the Core i9-14900KS processor, which is 30% more expensive than the current cost of owning the 14th Gen Core flagship.
