Intel Core i9-14900K appeared in CPU-Z, Clock up to 6GHz

This month, in the sun-kissed realm of San Jose, California, Intel is poised to unveil its 14th generation Core processors—aptly named Raptor Lake Refresh—at the illustrious “Intel Innovation” summit. As the epoch of its grand debut approaches, a veritable deluge of leaks and speculations about this new chip cascade into the public domain.

The Core i9-14900K emerges as the crown jewel of this nascent generation, mirroring its precursor, the Core i9-13900K, in its intricate amalgamation of 8 P-Cores and 16 E-Cores, culminating in a grand total of 24 cores with 32 threads. However, in the realm of clock speeds, the i9-14900K soars above its sibling by an additional 200 MHz, reaching a zenith of 6.0 GHz through the artifice of TVB technology. A recent digital whisper, stemming from an aficionado in possession of an ES chip, unveils that the Core i9-14900K boasts a TDP of 125W, with its PL2 registering at 253W.

In the rigorous crucible of CPU-Z benchmarks, this particular Core i9-14900K ES chip, operating at the aforementioned 6.0 GHz, garnered a commendable score of 978 in single-core tests, and an impressive 18,117.5 in multi-core evaluations. When juxtaposed against the metrics of the i9-13900K and i9-12900K, it exhibits a resplendent ascent of 9.7% and 8.4% in single-core performance, and a staggering 19.4% and 59% in multi-core prowess. This pronounced enhancement, when set against Alder Lake’s capabilities, predominantly emanates from the augmentation in the E-Core tally.
