Intel Core i9-14900K processor appears on Geekbench

Following the exposure of the i9-14900K CPU’s benchmark scores on CPUZ some time ago, this next-generation flagship CPU has recently made an appearance on GeekBench.

In the Geekbench 6.1.0 benchmark tests, the i9-14900K registered a single-core score exceeding 3100, indicating approximately a 6% performance boost compared to the current flagship CPU, the i9-13900K (which scores around 2950). The multi-core score, however, seems rather atypical, merely surpassing 19000, significantly trailing the i9-13900K’s score of 21000+. This discrepancy may stem from optimization issues with this test variant of the CPU or potential performance limitations of the Biostar Z790A-SILVER motherboard (identified to have a 90A 17-phase Dr.Mos power supply). In earlier CPU-Z tests, the Core i9-14900K was operational at a frequency of 6.0 GHz, garnering a single-core score of 978 and a multi-core result of 18117.5. When juxtaposed with the Core i9-13900K, this represents an elevation of roughly 9.4% and 19.4% for single-core and multi-core performances respectively.

The Core i9-14900K is the flagship model in the new product lineup, maintaining the same core count as the existing Core i9-13900K, comprising 8 P-Cores and 16 E-Cores, totaling 24 cores and 32 threads. Notably, in terms of frequency, the i9-14900K surpasses the i9-13900K, showcasing a 200 MHz increment and achieving 6.0 GHz via TVB technology. It’s posited that the Core i9-14900K will retain a TDP of 125W. However, given that most i9-13900K units exhibit a full-load power consumption of approximately 300W, the actual power usage of the i9-14900K is likely to exceed its designated TDP.

According to available intel, Intel is poised to unveil its 14th generation Core processor, dubbed Raptor Lake Refresh, at the upcoming “Intel Innovation” summit to be held in San Jose, California this month. As the launch date draws near, leaks regarding the new processors are bound to intensify. Insiders suggest that the initial pricing for the 14th generation Core will see about a 15% hike from its predecessor.
