Intel 14th Gen CPUs Performance and Specs Revealed In New Leak

Intel’s 14th Gen Desktop CPUs: Everything You Need to Know

The rumors surrounding Intel’s 14th Gen Desktop CPUs have been both plentiful and confusing. However, thanks to a new leak, we now have a clearer picture of what to expect from the upcoming lineup. In this article, we will delve into the details of Intel’s 14th Gen Desktop CPUs, including their architecture, performance gains, and specifications for the i5, i7, and i9 variants.

Intel 14th Gen Desktop CPUs Details Appear

An internal document leak from MSI, an official Intel board partner, has provided crucial information about the upcoming 14th Gen Desktop CPU lineup. According to the leak, these CPUs are expected to deliver an average performance increase of approximately 3%. The leak also suggests that the i7-14700K variant will see a significant improvement, with an estimated 17% boost in multi-threaded scenarios, thanks to its higher core count.

While the leaked information appeared publicly for a brief period before being made private, it offers valuable insights into the upcoming CPUs’ performance capabilities.

Additionally, the leak confirms that Intel’s 14th Gen Desktop CPUs will not feature any architectural changes. These CPUs will continue to utilize the 10nm ‘Intel 7’ manufacturing process. Although this may be a disappointment for some, it hints at the possibility of a major upgrade for Intel’s future 15th Gen processors, which could feature an entirely new manufacturing process.

Specifications of the 14th Gen Desktop CPUs

The leaked document includes detailed specifications for the various variants of Intel’s 14th Gen Desktop CPUs. As an official Intel board partner, the information shared by MSI can be considered highly reliable. The specifications are as follows:

Variant Specs
Intel Core i5-14600K 6 P-Cores, 8 E-Cores (14 Core Processor)
Intel Core i7-14700K 8 P-Cores, 12 E-Cores (20 Core Processor)
Intel Core i9-14900K 8 P-Cores, 16 E-Cores (24 Core Processor)

When it comes to core counts, there are no changes for the i5 and i9 processors compared to their predecessors. The i5 variant will feature 14 cores (6 P-Cores and 8 E-Cores), while the i9 variant will have 24 cores (8 P-Cores and 16 E-Cores). However, the i7-14700K will see a significant increase in core count compared to its predecessor, the i7-13700K. The i7-14700K will have a total of 20 cores (8 P-Cores and 12 E-Cores), providing a substantial performance boost.
