The technical example of the Core i5-14600K turned out to be up to 10% faster than the Core i5-13600K, but also uses more energy

Chinese enthusiast Enthusiastic Citizen (ECSM) was able to obtain a technical sample of the Raptor Lake-S Refresh series processor Core i5-14600K and test it in synthetic benchmarks. The new product turned out to be slightly faster than its predecessor, the Core i5-13600K, but at the expense of higher power consumption.

The Core i5-14600K Raptor Lake-S Refresh series features six powerful Raptor Cove cores with a base frequency of 3.5GHz and a turbo frequency of 5.3GHz, which is 200MHz higher than its predecessor. The new product also received eight energy-efficient Gracemont cores with a frequency of up to 4.0 GHz, which is 100 MHz higher than the Core i5-13600K. Like its predecessor, the updated chip received 24 MB of L3 cache and a nominal TDP of 125 W. At the same time, the new processor works at a higher voltage of 1.2 V, while the Core i5-13600K model works at 1.14 V.

The processor was tested in the Cinebench R23, Cinebench 2024 and CPU-Z benchmarks. Depending on the test, the Core i5-14600K proved to be 2.5 to 10.3% faster than its predecessor. The power consumption of the new chip was 160 W in tests, while the Core i5-13600K uses less than 160 W during rendering according to our tests.

The Chinese source did not provide any information on which test platform the new processor was tested on, which significantly reduces the credibility of his statements. Based on data from the Guru3D portal, below is a comparison table with test results in CPU-Z, Cinebench R23 and Cinebench 2024 of the Core i5-13600K processor.

It should be borne in mind that this is a technical sample of the Core i5-14600K, so the characteristics and, accordingly, test performance of the final consumer version of the chip may differ.
