This marks the initial release of Intel’s 14th Gen Core series for desktop CPUs, referred to as “Raptor Lake Refresh”. The retailer has affirmed the availability of all six CPUs within this series. The impending launch is set to encompass both the unlocked Core-K and Core-KF models, catering to the high-end sector with a TDP of 125W. These are typically preferred by gamers seeking to push their CPU limits through overclocking. Additionally, Intel is introducing non-K CPUs with lower TDPs, ranging from 65W and below, lacking support for conventional overclocking. These CPUs are projected to debut in the early months of the following year.
The information provided by Ukrainian retailer Telemart validates the SKU names, cache sizes, and maximum clock speeds, consistent with earlier leaks. Elaborate product pages showcase the subsequent specifications:
– Core i9-14900K (BX8071514900K): Featuring 24 cores, a base clock of 3.2 GHz, a boost clock of 6.0 GHz, 36MB cache, and a 125W TDP.
– Core i7-14700K (BX8071514700K): Equipped with 20 cores, a base clock of 3.4 GHz, a boost clock of 5.6 GHz, 33MB cache, and a 125W TDP.
– Core i5-14600K (BX8071514600K): Including 14 cores, a base clock of 3.5 GHz, a boost clock of 5.3 GHz, 24MB cache, and a 125W TDP.
The Intel Core i9-14900K stands as the top-tier offering within the fresh lineup, boasting a configuration of 24 cores (comprising 8 P-cores and 16 E-Cores). This CPU is reported to present a base clock of 3.2 GHz along with a boosted clock of 6.0 GHz, an increase of 200 MHz compared to the current generation model.
The rest of the specifications remain consistent with the earlier leaks, encompassing the 20-core Core i7-14700K featuring a 5.6 GHz boost and the 14-core Core i5-14600K model with a 5.3 GHz boost. It’s rather astonishing that this retailer has preemptively listed these CPUs nearly a month before the official announcement. However, it’s important to note that the announcement doesn’t equate to immediate retail availability; that is scheduled for October. Despite this somewhat premature listing, there’s still no information regarding pricing or potential stock levels for any of these CPUs.
