Intel unveils its 14th Generation Core processors designed for desktop computers

Intel has unveiled its latest lineup of desktop processors, the 14th Gen Intel Core processors. Leading this series is the flagship Intel Core i9-14900K processor, boasting 24 cores and a maximum frequency of up to 6GHz. These processors are designed with enhanced capabilities, offering 36MB of L3 cache and compatibility with both 600 and 700 series motherboards. Additionally, they feature Intel’s UHD Graphics 770 onboard. Users also have the option to choose the 14900KF variant, which shares the same specifications but lacks the onboard graphics.

In the Core i7 category, the lineup is spearheaded by the i7-14700K and i7-14700KF models. These CPUs deliver up to 20 cores and exhibit maximum/turbo frequencies comparable to the Core i9 processors, accompanied by 33MB of L3 cache.

Core i5 models, represented by the Core i5-14600K and Core i5-14600KF, come with matching specifications for both variants, except the KF model omits the integrated GPU. Notably, the Core i9 model supports a Thermal Velocity Boost of up to 6GHz, while the i7 models feature Turbo Boost Max technology. The Core i5 models, however, do not support either of these technologies.

All processors in this lineup offer support for Wi-Fi 6/6E, Bluetooth 5.3, and have future-ready capabilities for Wi-Fi 7 and Bluetooth 5.4. Thunderbolt 4 and Thunderbolt 5 are also part of the supported features.

These processors are set to become available starting on October 17th, through retail outlets and OEM partner systems, marking another advancement in Intel’s desktop processor offerings.
