CPU-Z and Core Temp monitoring tools display data indicating the existence of an undisclosed Intel Raptor Lake CPU, specifically labeled as the Core i5-14600K. This chip is part of the forthcoming collection of overclockable desktop processors. If the details showcased in the screenshot are correct, the CPU’s core count is projected to stay consistent, while a significant boost in frequency is anticipated.
Currently, the provided specifications suggest that the Core i5-14600K is expected to boast a turbo clock of 5.3 GHz, marking a 200 MHz increase compared to the Core i5-13600K from the existing generation.
The Gigabyte Z790 GAMING X AX motherboard was utilized for testing the CPU, and it employed the F5 BIOS version released in June. This suggests that support for the Raptor Lake Refresh CPU was likely finalized around that period.
The unveiling of Intel’s fresh desktop CPU lineup is projected to take place in September at the Innovation 2023 event. Nevertheless, the series is foreseen to become available for purchase roughly a month thereafter.
