Intel Core i7-14700K Turns Out To Be 17% Faster Than 13700K In CPUZ/Cinebench Multi-threaded Tests

@wnxod, a hardware leaker, recently shared alleged benchmark results of the Core i7-14700K processor. According to his claims, this processor is said to comprise 8 Performance cores and an unspecified number of efficient cores. However, previous reports suggested that this particular model could potentially have 12 Efficient cores.

The CPU is currently not acknowledged by any software, but it is recognized as the Raptor Lake HX/S die. As per the CPU-Z output, the CPU has the capability to reach a clock speed of 5.5 GHz. This speed is merely 100 MHz higher than the Core i7-13700K. However, the purported increase in the number of cores should be of greater significance.

Assuming the authenticity of these scores, the Core i7-14700K achieves 905 points in the CPU-Z single-core test and 14965 points in the multi-threaded test. In the Cinebench R23 test, it obtains 2192 points for single-core performance and 36296 points for multi-threaded performance. Let’s compare these results with the existing Core i7-13700K, which features 8 Performance cores and 8 Efficient cores.

The updated Raptor Lake series introduces the Core i7-14700K, which showcases a notable improvement in multi-threaded performance. However, the increase in single-core performance is only 4%, which is often more crucial. It remains uncertain whether this is the final version of the processor and its compatibility with existing motherboards is unknown.

The anticipated launch for the Intel Raptor Lake Refresh is now set for October. The initial release will prioritize the K-series SKUs, which includes the Core i7-14700K model.

A recent post on the Chinese Baidu forums provides insights into the anticipated configuration of the Core i7-14700K desktop CPU. This information is derived from a Windows Task Manager output. Surprisingly, the CPU reportedly features 20 cores and 28 threads, which is identical to the mobile Core i7-13850HX CPU. However, it is evident that this is not a mobile CPU due to its significantly higher base clock speed (3.4 GHz compared to 2.1 GHz). If this base clock speed indeed represents the 14th Gen Core CPU, it suggests that this particular model has maintained the same base clock as the previous generation.
