i9-14900K, i7-14700K, i5-14600K Hit the Market with Pricing

Intel has unveiled its 14th generation Core processors (Raptor Lake Refresh), including the high-end models Core i9-14900K/KF, Core i7-14700K/KF, and Core i5-14600K/KF. These processors were anticipated, and only the senior models with an unlocked multiplier were announced today.

There have been many leaks about these CPUs, so Intel didn’t reveal anything new except for the pricing. The new generation is minimally different from the previous one, except for the Core i7 models, which have four additional small cores compared to their predecessors.

Intel has decided not to increase prices, which is a relief, as there were rumors suggesting otherwise. This was also a concern last year.


Here are the specifications of the new processors:

  • Core i9-14900K/KF: 24 cores (8+16), frequencies of 3.2–6.0 GHz, 36 MB L3 cache, TDP 125W, and priced at $590/$565.
  • Core i7-14700K/KF: 20 cores (8+12), frequencies of 3.4–5.6+ GHz, 33 MB L3 cache, TDP 125W, and priced at $385/$410.
  • Core i5-14600K/KF: 14 cores (6+8), frequencies of 3.5–5.3+ GHz, 24 MB L3 cache, TDP 125W, and priced at $295/$320.

Intel chose the Core i7-14700K to demonstrate the performance increase with the new generation, as it can truly showcase this improvement.

The new CPUs will be available for purchase starting tomorrow.

The new Intel processors represent a continuation of the company’s focus on providing high-performance multi-core CPUs for demanding applications and gaming. The Core i9-14900K/KF, being the flagship, offers a substantial number of cores and high clock speeds, making it suitable for tasks requiring intense computational power. The Core i7 and Core i5 variants, while slightly less powerful, still offer considerable performance and are more budget-friendly, making them ideal for mainstream users and gamers. The decision to keep prices stable despite the increase in performance and core counts indicates Intel’s commitment to competitive pricing in the CPU market. This release is likely to solidify Intel’s position in the high-performance CPU segment, appealing to both enthusiasts and average consumers looking for the latest in processor technology.
