It looks like retailers in East Asia have jumped the gun on the marketing materials for Intel’s upcoming 14th gen Core processors. This comes two weeks before the expected October 17th “Raptor Lake Refresh” product launch. The marketing materials give us a basic overview of the specifications of the Core i9, Core i7, and Core i5 models.
Taking a look at the specifications the Intel Core i9-14900K will have 24 cores (8P, 16E) and a max boost clock of 6.0 GHz. The Intel Core i7-14700K will have 20 cores (8P, 12E) and a max boost clock of 5.60 GHz. Finally the Intel Core i5-14600K will have 14 cores (6P, 8E) and a max boost clock of 5.30 GHz. This looks like a 200 MHz bump in performance across the series compared to the 13th gen core processors.
It is also worth noting that the Core i9-14900K will be the first 6 GHz processor from Intel that is not a special edition (KS) processor. It will also have a lower default TDP of 125W compared to the 150W of the Core i9-13900KS.
