Intel’s 14th Gen Core i7-14700K has been spotted running at a core clock of 6.3GHz, nearly a whole Gigahertz higher than the 13700K. The next-gen desktop part is a 20-core chip featuring 8 P-cores and 12 E-cores, up from 16 cores on the latter (8P +8E). The i7-14700K was running on an MSI Z690 Edge WiFi DDR4 with the memory clocked at 4,600MT/s in Gear 1 mode.
This implies that the memory and controller ran at 2,300MHz in a 1:1 configuration. What is unclear is whether this setup was stable, as we merely have a snapshot of the BIOS and not a real-world workload. It’s worth noting that the CPU VCore was set to 1.384v and the DDR4 voltage to 1.624v, way higher than what’s considered safe for daily use.
Intel’s 14th Gen Raptor Lake-S Refresh is essentially a rebrand of existing 13th Gen parts. The Core i7-14700K is the only SKU set to differ from its predecessor in its core/thread configuration. Team Blue is slated to release its 14th Gen Raptor Lake and Meteor Lake offerings during its Innovation Event in late September.
