Intel has officially unwrapped its 14th-gen processor lineup aimed at PC enthusiasts, gamers, and other customers needing high-performance desktop processors. The new CPU trio delivers the "fastest desktop frequencies," the "best desktop experience," and "unparalleled overclocking."

“Since the introduction of our performance hybrid architecture, Intel has consistently raised the bar for desktop performance. With our Intel Core 14th Generation processors, we’re showing once again why enthusiasts turn to Intel for the best desktop experience available on the market today.”

The lineup consists of three unlocked models (plus iGPU-less KF variants) with up to 24 cores and 6GHz max clocks. The Core i7-14700K model received four extra E-cores, bumping the spec up to 8 P-cores and 12-E cores for 20 cores and 28 threads. Intel claims the change results in significant performance gains in multi-threaded workloads.

…so, are Intel simply adding more Core’s, Thread’s, Clock Speed, Buss’ etc to what is essentially an x86 processor, or am I missing something. No RISC, ARM? Same architecture?

Like “Back to the Future 14”.

Intel’s latest 14th Gen chips aren’t a huge improvement over the 13th Gen in gaming performance, but a new Intel Application Optimization (APO) feature might just change that. Intel’s new APO app simply runs in the background, improving performance in games. It offers impressive boosts to frame rates in games that support it, like Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege and Metro Exodus.

Intel Application Optimization essentially directs application resources in real time through a scheduling policy that fine-tunes performance for games and potentially even other applications in the future. It operates alongside Intel’s Thread Director, a technology that’s designed to improve how apps and games are assigned to performance or efficiency cores depending on the performance needs. The result is some solid gains to performance in certain games, with one Reddit poster seeing a 200fps boost in Rainbow Six Siege at 1080p.

It’s easy to get lured by the flashy 6GHz number, but the i9-14900K’s high speed only lasts for short bursts. [...] This chip guzzles power like it’s going out of style—253 watts, to be exact. That’s not exactly what you’d call efficient.
