Intel has unveiled its 14th generation desktop processor family, led by the powerful Intel Core i9-14900K processor. The new generation includes six unlocked desktop processors delivering up to 24 cores, 32 threads and an impressive 6GHz right out of the box.
Enhanced core performance
The Intel Core i7-14700K boasts 20 cores and 28 threads, thanks to the addition of four efficient cores (E-cores) over the previous generation.
In addition, Intel Extreme Tuning Utility (XTU) has added AI Assist, which allows one-click overclocking control for some unlocked 14th generation Intel Core desktop processors.
The i9-14900K, the fastest 6GHz desktop processor out of the box, gives gamers a lot of options. The 25% increase in cores in the i7-14700K increases multi-threaded workloads for creators.
Intel’s advanced hybrid architecture delivers high levels of performance for everyday tasks such as:
- Gaming Platform: 14th Generation Intel Core processors deliver up to 23% more gaming performance than competing processors, plus gaming-focused features like Intel Application Optimization (APO) for more efficient application threading.
- Overclocking Excellence: The unlocked processors deliver unprecedented overclocking, now featuring Intel XTU AI Assist for overclocking with artificial intelligence and support for DDR5 XMP speeds over 8000 MT/S.
- Connectivity: The latest processors support Wi-Fi 6/6E, Bluetooth 5.3, and the upcoming Wi-Fi 7 and Bluetooth 5.4. Thunderbolt 4 and the upcoming Thunderbolt 5 provide ultrafast wired connectivity, with speeds up to 80Gbps with bi-directional data transfer.
- Chipset Compatibility: These processors are still compatible with Intel’s 600 and 700 series chipsets, making it easy to upgrade your system and access the latest gaming and creative features.
