Intel i5-14600K, i7-14700K & i9-14900K Specifications Confirmed by Leak, More Cores & Faster Clock Speeds For Better Performance 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.

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.

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.
