14th Gen Intel Core i7-14700K Spotted: Up to 17% Faster than 13700K in Multi-Threaded Tasks

The Core i7-14700K is the only 14th Gen desktop CPU to offer a notable improvement in multi-threaded performance. We're looking at a bump in the E-core count from 8 to 12 on this SKU.

Intel’s 14th Gen Core i7-14700K has been spotted again, this time over at Bilibili. The poster has included the specification of the 20-core CPU along with ten detailed benchmarks, comparing it to the 13700K in single and multi-threaded workloads. It’s worth noting that the i7-14700K is the only 14th Gen SKU to offer more cores than its 13th Gen counterpart.

The Core i7-14700K features 8P and 12E cores, bringing the thread count up to 28 (vs. 24 on the 13700K). The operating clock on this sample tops out at 5.5GHz for the P and 4.3GHz for the E-cores. Let’s have a look at the benchmarks. We’ve got CPU-Z, Cinebench R23, PC Mark 10, TimeSpy, and others.

In single-threaded benchmarks, the Core i7-14700K manages a 3-5% lead over the 13700K. Shifting to multi-threaded benchmarks, the additional E-cores come into play. The 14700K is 14% to 17% faster than its predecessor. PC Mark 10 records roughly the same numbers on both CPUs, while TimeSpy is ~7% faster on the latter because of the additional E-cores.

Intel plans to release the 14th Gen Raptor Lake Refresh during its Innovation Event next month. From what we know, only the K-series chips are planned for this year, leaving the rest to CES 2024.
