New Intel Core 14th Gen desktop CPUs can clock up to 6GHz

As promised, Intel has launched its 14th Gen desktop CPUs. The new generation of desktop processors is known as the Raptor Lake Refresh. According to Intel, these processors come with boost frequencies of a whopping 6GHz out of the box.  So, here’s what you need to know about Intel’s latest Raptor Lake Refresh (14th Gen) line of desktop processors. Intel Core 14th Gen Raptor Lake Refresh performance leap Starting off is the flagship Intel Core i9-14900K, which is the “fastest desktop processor at volume,” according to the chipmaker, due to the 6GHz boost clock.  Note that these CPUs still have the Core i branding, which Intel won’t use for its upcoming Meteor Lake refresh. Intel’s Core i9-14900K comes with the 6GHz Thermal Velocity Boost frequency, previously only seen on the special-edition Core i9-13900KS variant.  Source: Intel The frequencies have also increased. The P-core max turbo has a clock speed of 5.6GHz, while the E-core max turbo has increased 100MHz. Both base frequencies also received a 200MHz bump. However, the most interesting processor in the Raptor Lake refresh is probably the Intel Core i7-14700K due to the bump in its efficiency cores.  This year, Intel has increased the core count on its Core i7 line. The processor now has 12 efficiency cores and eight performance cores rather than eight efficiency and eight performance cores. So, we are looking at a total of 20 cores on the Intel Core i7-14700K. The number of cores is surprisingly close to 24 cores on the…New Intel Core 14th Gen desktop CPUs can clock up to 6GHz
