Benchmarks


Description of the processor

The Intel Core i9-14900K comes from Intels only slightly improved "Raptor Lake Refresh" architecture. It has 8 P-cores (Raptor Cove) and 16 smaller E-cores (Gracemont). With this hybrid core structure, the processor has a total of 24 cores and 32 threads that can be processed simultaneously.

Compared to the previous model, the Intel Core i9-13900K, Intel has only slightly increased the clock frequency by up to 200 MHz, which corresponds to a speed advantage of around 5 percent. Since neither architecture nor manufacturing processes have been improved, this additional performance comes at the cost of increased energy consumption.

This is also unfortunate in view of the already very poor energy efficiency. The TDP remains unchanged at 125 watts, although the PL2 of 253 watts can be maintained permanently with good cooling. The Intel Core i9-14900K only achieves maximum performance at 253 watts. Operation beyond this is possible, but not sensible as the energy efficiency decreases rapidly above a TDP of 253 watts.

Nevertheless, the Intel Core i9-14900K is suitable for both games and demanding applications like no other processor. Up to 192 GB of DDR5-5600 memory can be managed by the processor. The maximum memory bandwidth for dual-channel DDR5-5600 is 89.6 GB/s.

The processor has 20 PCIe 5.0 lines with a bandwidth of 78.8 GB/s. Additional PCIe lines can be implemented via the respective mainboard chipset. A dedicated graphics card and a fast M.2 SSD can be connected directly to the Intel Core i9-14900K itself via PCIe 5.0 x16.

The Intel Core i9-14900K has 32 MB Level 2 cache and 36 MB Level 3 cache. The 14th generation of Intel Core i processors is the third and last to use the LGA 1700 socket.
