Intel Corporation Officially announced the fourteenth generation of desktop processors. It is not based on a new architecture, but the Californian company has made some improvements over the previous generation, hence the name Raptor Lake Update. The first six CPUs will go on sale starting tomorrow, Tuesday, October 17.
New Intel Core i5, i7 and i9 processor
Processors Raptor Lake Update They “squeeze” the Intel 7nm (10nm) process technology to the limit before making way for the new 7nm (Intel 4) Meteor Lake architecture. Users can thus update existing desktop computers, as a BIOS update is sufficient for motherboards with Intel 600/700 chipsets and LGA 1700 socket.
Contrary to what was expected, Intel revealed only six processors (and the rest may be announced in the coming weeks). The top of the range is Core i9-14900K With 24 cores (16 E cores and 8 P cores), its maximum speed reaches 6GHz. the Core i9-14900KF It shares the same specifications, but the integrated Intel UHD Graphics 770 GPU is missing.
There is, too Core i7-14700K And Core i7-14700KF With 20 cores (12 E-cores and 8 P-cores) it reaches a maximum frequency of 5.6GHz. Core i5-14600K And Core i5-14600KF Instead, they have 14 cores (8 E-cores and 6 P-cores) with a maximum frequency of 5.3 GHz.
They all support DDR5-5600 and DDR4-3200 memory (up to 192GB), 20 PCI Express 4.0/5.0 lanes, Wi-Fi 6/6E/7, Bluetooth 5.3/5.4, and Thunderbolt 4/5. There is no NPU (Neural Processing Unit) for the AI (as there is in Core Ultra processors), but the AI is exploited by Intel Extreme Tuning Utility (XTU) for overclocking CPUs (only for Core i9s).
Users will be able to purchase the new processors starting October 17, in both versions selling by pieces through which OEM.
