Intel won’t be bumping up the core counts of its lower-end Core i3 processors, after all. As per a reputed source, the 14th Gen i3-14100 will feature only four cores, the same as the existing 13th Gen i3s. The 14th Gen K series parts are slated to land this fall (September or October), while the non-K offerings will land in the first quarter of 2024. The two lineups will have the same base specifications with slight differences in boost clocks and, of course, the ability to overclock.
The 14th Gen Core i3-14100/F will feature four P-cores, 12MB of L3 cache, and a boost clock of 4.7GHz. The i5-14400/F will pack six P-cores and four E-cores alongside 20MB of L3 cache. It will have a boost clock of 4.7GHz on the former. The Core i5-14500 and 14600 will be 10-core parts with 6 P-cores and 4 E-cores and 24MB of L3 cache. The former will top out at 5GHz and the latter at 5.2GHz.
The Core i7-14700/F will pack 20 cores, 8P and 12E, alongside 33MB of L3 cache and a boost clock of 5.4GHz on the performance cores. Finally, the Core i9-14900/F will have 24 cores (8P and 16E) and 36MB of L3 cache. Its P-cores will top out at 5.8GHz.
