At the impending “Intel Innovation” summit in San Jose, California, Intel is poised to unveil its 14th generation Core processor, aptly termed the Raptor Lake Refresh. In anticipation of this release, a multitude of motherboard manufacturers have been ardently updating the BIOS for their 600/700 series motherboards to ensure compatibility with the new generation of processors. Additionally, there’s been a successive roll-out of meticulously optimized Z790 motherboards.

According to a report from VideoCardz, a hardware enthusiast named @OneRaichu has conducted preliminary tests on the Core i9-14900KF via Geekbench, revealing a staggering frequency of 6GHz. This powerhouse was paired with the ASRock Z790 Taichi motherboard and fortified with 32GB of DDR5-7000 memory.

Within the confines of Geekbench 6.2, the Core i9-14900KF’s single-thread benchmark scores oscillated between 3,322 and 3,347, while its multi-thread scores ranged from 22,895 to 23,051. In comparison, under Geekbench 5.4, the processor garnered a single-thread score of 2,412 and a multi-thread score of 26,972. Preliminary insights suggest that the multi-core performance of the Core i9-14900KF surpasses its predecessor, the Core i9-13900K, by an approximately 5 to 6%, while its single-core prowess witnesses an enhancement of roughly 12%.
