Intel accelerates desktop frequencies with Intel Core 14th Gen processors
Delivering the world’s fastest desktop frequencies, Intel’s Core 14th Generation desktop processor family has been launched and is led by the Intel Core i9-14900K.
This latest-generation desktop processor family includes six new unlocked desktop processors, delivering up to 24 cores and 32 threads and up to 6GHz of frequency.
The Intel Core i7-14700K has 20 cores and 28 threads leveraging to four more Efficient-cores (E-cores) than the previous generation. Another feature is Intel’s Extreme Tuning Utility (XTU) which now features the new AI Assist, bringing one-click AI-guided overclocking to select unlocked Intel Core 14th Gen desktop processors.
The Intel Core 14th Gen desktop processors are powered by Intel’s hybrid architecture for compute performance for desktop and gaming requirements.
In addition to the i9-14900K, there is the i7-14700K, with 25 per cent more cores than its predecessor for “significant” performance gains in multi-threaded workloads. The Intel Core 14th Gen desktop processors also have the world’s best overclocking experience and compatibility with existing 600/700-series motherboards, said Intel.
The Intel Core 14th Gen processors power an immersive gaming experience with up to 23 per cent gaming performance uplift compared to leading competitor processors, claimed Intel, while new gaming-focused features like Intel Application Optimization (APO) improve application threading alongside existing Intel Thread Director application thread scheduling.
The processors also include the new Intel XTU AI Assist feature for AI guided over-clocking, as well as support for DDR5 XMP speeds well beyond 8,000 Mtransfers per second.
The desktop processor family is equipped with integrated support for Wi-Fi 6/6E and Bluetooth 5.3, as well as discrete support for new Wi- and Bluetooth 5.4 wireless technologies. They also support Thunderbolt 4 and the impending Thunderbolt 5 wired connectivity – supporting up to 80Gbits per second of bi-directional bandwidth.
The processors remain compatible with both Intel 600 and 700 series chipsets, to enable upgrades to systems.
The range of Intel Core 14th Gen desktop processors is available now.
