Intel 14th Gen chips are anticipated to launch soon, and speculation has already heated up. We’ll talk about a recent leak for the Intel Core i9-14900K from the 14th generation Raptor Lake S refresh today. Are you curious as to why I termed it the Raptor Lake S Refresh? That’s because MSI previously disclosed the architecture. We will now discuss the Intel Core i9-14900K desktop processor’s Cinebench 2024 performance score.
Early Intel Core i9-14900K Benchmarks in Cinebench 2024: Details
If you weren’t aware, Maxon recently launched a new benchmark called Cinebench 2024. It is the most recent version of Cinebench; R23 was the previous one. Now, the Cinebench 2024 benchmark results for the Intel 14th Gen Core i9-14900K desktop CPU demonstrate that it is undoubtedly faster than the previous, but by how much? Wccftech.com reports that their testing show a 5% gain in multi-core scores but virtually no improvement in single-core scores.
There is little doubt that the new CPU’s final scores may be higher. Using an air cooler, an early pre-release test was conducted, and the CPU did reach its maximum operating temperature of 100 degrees Celsius. It’s also not entirely clear if the RAM had a 4800MHz or higher speed. The base clock listed here is also faster than the 13900K’s 3.19GHz, which we know from earlier leaks will be at least 6GHz.
It is crucial to understand that we cannot take these final performance numbers into account. First of all, this is a brand-new test, and the questioned processor (Core i9-14900K) has not yet been formally introduced to the public by Intel. These are merely the speculative pre-release scores.
Nonetheless, every leak indicates that 2019 will be a “refresh year” for Intel chips. Thus, don’t expect Intel’s 14th Gen to bring forth any big performance improvements. Simply put, if you are coming from a 12th-Gen Alder Lake processor, consider Intel’s future 14th-gen processors to be a worthy upgrade. The new 14th Gen CPU lineup won’t be particularly intriguing for current Raptor Lake owners.
Interestingly, the source of the leak (Chiphell forums) suggests the CPU was found ‘in a tree pit on the side of the road‘ (translation). The source continues to avoid confirming the CPU’s actual model, to leave things vague. However, aligning this leak with the previously leaked specifications (24-cores & 32-threads) clearly shows that this is most probably the 14th Gen Core i9-14900K.
Below is a summary of all the information we currently have on Intel’s 14th-Generation desktop and laptop CPUs. It contains information on the anticipated release date, leaked benchmarks, and even the 14th-Gen CPU specifications that have been released. What do you think of the new Intel 14th Gen desktop processors, then? Please share your opinions in the section below.
