14th Gen Intel Core i9-14900K Benchmark Scores and Clock Speed Leaked

As 2023 is ending, we have started hearing more about Intel’s next generation of CPUs. And so far, the leaks and rumors have been disappointing. And if that was not bad enough, the 14th Gen Intel Raptor Lake Refresh CPUs are also going to cost more than the previous ones. Now, some more leaks have surfaced online that reveal more information about these Intel CPUs.

Intel Core i9-14900K 9% faster than its predecessor

To give you some context, K series processors are one of the high-end models of Intel CPUs. Pair that with the Core i9, which is the highest tier of the series; it becomes a very capable machine.

In recent news, some specifications and benchmark scores of the upcoming Intel Core i9-14900K have been leaked. The leak confirms the existence of 24 cores that were already leaked a while back. It also shows that the CPU will feature a base TDP of 125 Watts.

In addition to that, the CPU will feature a base clock speed of 3.2 GHz, and the boost frequency will go up to 6 GHz. For the unaware, this is the same as the Intel Core i9-13900KS. This does not give us much hope for the upcoming Intel CPUs.

However, benchmark scores tell a different story. It seems like some refinements have been made to enhance the performance of these CPUs despite having a very similar architecture to the previous generation. In the aforementioned leak, the leaker has also shown us how the CPU performs in the CPU-Z benchmark test.

It scored 978 points on the single-core test and 18,117.5 points on the multi-core test. This is roughly a 9% increase over the Intel Core i9-13900K in the single-core test. The results also indicate a 6% increase in the multi-core performance.

Considering the probable price hike of almost $100, these upgrades are insufficient. We advise you not to upgrade if you own one of the 13th-generation Intel CPUs.

Regarding most leaks and rumors, we expect to see the Intel Raptor Lake Refresh CPUs this month at the Innovation 2023 event.

Lastly, you should note that all the information provided here is based on leaks and rumors. Intel has barely confirmed anything. Although last-minute changes are doubtful, there can still be variations in the final product since these tests are probably conducted on pre-production units.
