A leaked training video from MSI has revealed information regarding Intel’s 14th-gen Core CPUs. Although the video was hidden, relevant information was discovered and shared.
According to GSMArena, the relevant slide in the video compares Intel’s current Core i5-13600K, Core i7-13700K, and Core i9-13900K with the next-gen Core i5-14600K, Core i7-14700K, and Core i9-14900K. While the Core i3 and Core i9 models maintain their core configurations, the Core i7 model adds four more E.
This, MSI says, results in a 17% average performance improvement on the Core i7 in multi-threaded applications. Things are much less impressive for the other parts, though, with basically just a small boost in clocks. MSI says this should result in an average performance increase of about 3% over the previous generation. These numbers are consistent with previous leaked benchmark results.
This change is not too surprising as Intel Core the 14th Gen, or Raptor Lake-S Refresh, is simply the 13th Gen Raptor Lake-S architecture with increased clock speed, with a number of cases improving the number of E cores and cache. In contrast, the 14th Gen Core will be compatible with current 600 and 700 series chipset motherboards that support the 12th and 13th Gen Cores.
Although not mentioned in the MSI leak, the new generation CPUs may carry the new Intel brand, in which they will carry the Core 5, Core 7, and Core 9 names, ie giving up the trademark ” i” current. Intel is expected to announce the new processors during its Innovation 2023 event in September.
