Intel Core i9-14900K Review

Intel Core i9-14900K Raptor Lake-S CPU review! In the ASRock Z790 Riptide WiFi video we have already mentioned the Raptor Lake Refresh CPUs and today we take a closer look on at the fastest Intel Core i9 CPU of the 14th processor generation. We test and overclock the Intel Core i9-14900K LGA1700 processor on an ASRock Z790 Refresh DDR5 motherboard and are very excited about the results.

The Intel Core i9-14900K currently has a price of approx. 620 Euro (12/2023).

The delivery of the Intel Core i9-14900K …

The boxed version is supplied either as an OEM or in smart Intel packaging. Our tray version, on the other hand, was delivered without the fancy packaging, so that we can take a direct look at the CPU.

In addition to the Intel Core i9-14900K, the following 14th generation desktop processors are currently available: Intel Core i9-14900KF, Intel Core i7-14700KF, Intel Core i5-14600KF, Intel Core i7-14700K and Intel Core i5-14600K. These processors differ first of all in the number of cores, which are divided into P-cores and E-cores. They also offer a different clock rate in the base and turbo clock, but also in the L2 cache and L3 cache design and features. The KF version is also a slightly cheaper version without an integrated graphics unit.

The Intel K and KF processors are supplied without a cooler, even if they were ordered in the stylish boxed packaging. The difference between Intel Boxed vs Tray is therefore no longer in the cooler and even the limited warranty for these Intel Tray and Boxed CPUs has now been set to 3 years. With an original sealed Intel Boxed CPU, however, you can be sure that it really has not yet been installed or tested for possible overclocking.
