Intel Launches Intel Core 14th Gen Desktop Processors.
October 16, 2023 – Today, Intel launched the new Intel® Core™ 14th Generation desktop processor family, led by the Intel® Core™ i9-14900K. This latest-generation desktop processor family includes six new unlocked desktop processors at launch, delivering up to 24 cores and 32 threads and up to 6 GHz of frequency right out of the box. Additionally, the Intel® Core™ i7-14700K arrives with 20 cores and 28 threads thanks to four more efficient cores (E-cores) compared with the prior generation. And Intel’s Extreme Tuning Utility (XTU) now features the new AI Assist feature, bringing one-click AI-guided overclocking to select unlocked Intel Core 14th Gen desktop processors
“Since the introduction of our performance hybrid architecture, Intel has consistently raised the bar for desktop performance. With our Intel Core 14th Generation processors, we’re showing once again why enthusiasts turn to Intel for the best desktop experience available on the market today.”Roger Chandler, Intel vice president and general manager, Enthusiast PC and Workstation, Client Computing Group
Intel Core Performance Hybrid Architecture
The role of the CPU in gaming and creating has never been more important. Intel Core 14th Gen desktop processors, powered by Intel’s advanced performance hybrid architecture, give PC enthusiasts the compute performance they need without compromising user workflow. Performance hybrid architecture combines two core microarchitectures, Performance-cores (P-cores) and Efficient-cores (E-cores), on a single processor die first introduced on 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors. Select 12th Gen and newer Intel Core processors do not have performance hybrid architecture, only P-cores or E-cores, and may have the same cache size. See ark.intel.com for SKU details, including cache size and core frequency.
Intel Core 14th Gen – i9-14900K
At the top of the Intel Core 14th Gen desktop processor stack, the i9-14900K—the world’s fastest desktop processor with 6 GHz speeds right out of the box—gives gamers the edge they need to stay on top. And with 25% more cores in the i7-14700K, creators will enjoy significant performance gains in their multi-threaded workloads. Combined with the world’s best overclocking experience and compatibility with existing 600/700-series motherboards, Intel Core 14th Gen desktop processors deliver the computing power and performance enthusiasts require.
