Benchlife.info has leaked the specifications of the K-tier SKUs from Intel’s upcoming 14th Generation. This includes the i5-14600K, the i7-14700K, and the kingpin i9-14900K. We should remind users that these CPUs feature an architecture identical to Raptor Lake. The only differences are the increased core counts and faster clock speeds.
i5-14600K, i7-14700K & i9-14900K Specifications
As per the rumored information, Benchlife received an update regarding the specifications. These specifications are slightly different from what RedGamingTech reported a while back. Additionally, we have the confirmed clock speeds and cache counts, which can easily be calculated since the architecture does not change.
|Feature||Intel Core i5-14600K||Intel Core i7-14700K||Intel Core i9-14900K|
|Base Core Frequency||3.5GHz||3.4GHz||3.2GHz|
|Intel Thermal Velocity Boost Technology||N/A||N/A||YES|
|Intel Thermal Velocity Boost Frequency||N/A||N/A||6.0GHz|
|Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0||N/A||YES||YES|
|Intel TBMT3 Frequency||N/A||5.6GHz||5.8GHz|
|P-Core Max Turbo Frequency||5.3GHz||5.5GHz||5.7GHz|
|E-Core Max Turbo Frequency||4.0GHz||4.3GHz||4.4GHz|
|Intel Smart Cache||24MB||33MB||36MB|
Starting off, the i5-14600K retains a core count similar to the i5-13600K, although with a 200MHz higher P-core clock speed. The E-cores can also boost up to 4GHz, which is 100MHz higher than what the 13600K offers.
- i5-14600K: +200Mhz P-Core Frequency | +100MHz E-Core Frequency
The 20-core i7-14700K on the other hand has already been seen in the battlefield before so we will only confirm the clock speeds. Yet again, we see a 200MHz increase in the clock frequency for the P-cores with the E-cores being 100MHz faster much like the 14600K.
- i7-14700K: +4 E-Cores | +200MHz P-Core Frequency | +100MHz E-Core Frequency
Last, but not the least, the i9-14900K only sees a slight bump in the clock speeds which now hit the 6GHz barrier. This is not different from the i9-13900KS, apart from the E-cores which also boost 100MHz higher. We are not sure about the binning process, though the difference seems minimal between these two generations.
- i9-14900K: +200MHz P-Core Frequency | +100MHz E-Core Frequency
