I9-9900K vs I9-9900KS Question

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am planning on upgrading my current system for Prepar3d V4.5

I currrently have a I7-4790K in an ASUS VII Hero. It has been working pretty decently and with tiple 2k, 32 inch monitors set at 30HZ. it is giving me smooth 29-32 FPS, with the exception of shearing/ghosting  at major airports, and all airports in the southern UK area.

My question is related to the newly announced I9-9900KS  CPU. 

I believe that the main difference between the K and the KS is that the K can only operate one core at 5.0 GHZ while the KS can have all cores operating at 5.0 GHZ.

My question is, and considering that Prepar 3d mostly uses the first core, is it worth it to wait for the KS considering that it will cost somewhat more than the K version.

Will the faster speed of the other cores bring any benefit?

Thanks

Juan

You will need not only the CPU, but also new motherboard, RAM and possibly GPU for this system to reach it's full potential.

Thanks Jude,

Yes,  I know that I need a new motherboard as the I9-9900K needs an 1151 socket , so I was thinking in upgrading to the ASUX hero X1, and also DDR4 memory. In regards to the GPU, it can wait for the time being, as I have a GE Force 1080 TI with 11GB with liquid cooler.

Regards,

Juan
