Intel’s 14th Gen Core Non-K CPU lineup has reportedly underwhelming features that fail to excite technology enthusiasts, according to a leak shared by hardware leaker chi11eddog.
What’s the leak?
The Intel’s 14th Gen Core Non-K CPU leak reveals 10 new Raptor Lake Refresh CPUs including F series SKUs. Specs show:
- i7-14700/F has new 8P+12E core config, while others remain similar to 13th Gen chips.
- L3 cache amounts are unchanged from 13th Gen.
- Most SKUs only offer minor 100-200MHz frequency bumps.
- Only Core i7 stands to see notable improvements in multi-threaded workloads due to extra E-cores.
What to Expect?
Performance gains are expected to be minimal for most SKUs due to:
- Unchanged cores – Same core counts and configurations indicate similar single/multi-threaded performance.
- Minor frequency bumps – Only 2% faster max clocks for some chips, insufficient to drive meaningful gains.
- Unchanged cache – L3 cache serves data/instructions to cores; the same cache amounts suggest similar capabilities.
What does This means for consumers?
Those on budget Non-K CPUs likely won’t see the reason to upgrade. The few minor improvements won’t translate into a noticeably faster experience. Consumers may continue to seek performance gains from the higher-end, unlocked K-series CPUs.
Future Scope and Expectations
For future generations, Intel needs more than incremental clock speed bumps. They must deliver:
- Improved architecture – More optimized designs to extract higher performance within the same power constraints.
- Increased core counts – Extra cores allow for handling more intensive workloads faster.
- Larger caches – Bigger caches can reduce latency and improve CPU capabilities.
- Innovation – Novel technologies that give Intel’s CPUs a uniquely compelling value proposition.
