We prove that the K-moduli space of cubic fourfolds is identical to their GIT moduli space. More precisely, the K-(semi/poly)stability of cubic fourfolds coincide to the corresponding GIT stabilities, which was studied in detail by Laza. In particular, this implies that all smooth cubic fourfolds admit Kähler-Einstein metrics. Key ingredients are local volume estimates in dimension three due to Liu and Xu, and Ambro-Kawamata's non-vanishing theorem for Fano fourfolds.
