Intel promotional materials confirm the characteristics of the Raptor Lake Refresh processors

The leak of Intel’s first official marketing materials on the updated Raptor Lake-S Refresh processors confirmed the characteristics of the three expected chip models. These are in particular the flagship model Core i9-14900K as well as the mid-range models Core i7-14700K and Core i5-14600K.

Marketing materials from Intel’s Japanese office confirm that the 24-core Core i9-14900K contains 8 productive P-cores and 16 energy-efficient E-cores. This is the first Intel processor that can automatically overclock one of the performance cores to a frequency of 6 GHz.

The Intel Core i7-14700K model actually gets four additional energy-efficient cores. Thus, the processor offers 20 cores in an 8P+12E configuration with support for 28 virtual threads. This is the only chip model in the Raptor Lake Refresh family that has an increased number of cores. For comparison, the current Intel Core i7-13700K has an 8P + 8E core configuration. The maximum frequency of the new processor is 5.6 GHz.

The Core i5-14600K model received 14 cores (6P+8E) with support for 20 virtual threads. The processor has a maximum frequency of 5.3 GHz. Thus, the leak confirms that the updated chips have received a 200 MHz increase in maximum frequency. According to unofficial information, the new products also received an increase in the base frequency by 200 MHz.

Amid the Intel leak, some users have posted photos of the product packaging of these processors on social networks.

The start of sales of the 14th generation Intel Core desktop processors, i.e. the models with an unlocked multiplier (models with the endings K and KF) and a nominal TDP of 125 W, is expected on October 17th.
