Intel Core i9-14900K Review

Result and general impression …

The Intel Core i9-14900K is an extremely powerful 24-core CPU that supports all current standards such as PCIe 5.0 for graphics cards and M.2 SSDs as well as high-performance DDR5 RAM in addition to strong performance and good OC capabilities on a high-end motherboard.

Thanks to the unlocked multipliers, it is really fun to overclock the Intel Core i9-14900K extensively and with AI Assist in the Intel XTU tool, even overclocking can be child’s play. But regardless of whether manual overclocking with a lot of fine-tuning or overclocking at the touch of a button – sufficient CPU cooling and a powerful power supply unit are essential for overclocking or a high CPU load in any case.

Dividing the work of apps and programs in the operating system between P-Core and E-Core CPU cores improves efficiency and thus reduces power consumption at maximum performance, which in our test easily outperformed even an AMD Ryzen 9 7950X system.

You can decide for yourself whether to use a DDR5 mainboard or a mainboard with DDR4 memory, as the Intel Raptor Lake Refresh continues to support both RAM generations.

Overall, the Core i9 Raptor Lake-S processor from the 14th generation really impressed us and this strong performance is rewarded with our Overclocking Dream Award 12/2023!
