After releasing the Intel Core Ultra processors last month, the chipmaker has dropped the 14th generation of desktop processors. The family is led by Core i9-14900HX, one of the most powerful desktop processors on the market. Further, Intel has also released the HX-Series of mobile processors and the Core Series 1 family. Since there’s much to cover, let’s start without any further ado.

“The new generation of processors continue to utilize Intel’s performance hybrid architecture to optimize your gaming, content creation, and productivity,” per the official press release. There are three new models with two iterations each.

First, there’s the Core i9K and the Core i9KF with a Max Turbo Frequency of up to 6.0 GHz, up to 24 cores (including eight performance and 16 efficient cores), and 32 processor threads. While the Core i9K ships with Intel’s UHD Graphics 770, the i9KF doesn’t include the graphics processor.

Then there are the Core i7K and Core i7KF processors, which ship with a Max Turbo Frequency of up to 5.6 GHz, up to 20 cores (including eight performance and 12 efficient cores), and 28 processing threads. Similar to the Core i9 series, the i7K ships with the Intel UHD graphics processor powered by the Xe architecture, while the i7K variant doesn’t.

However, the Intel UHD Graphics 770 on the Core i7K processor has a lesser graphics dynamic frequency (1600 MHz) than the Core i9K processor (1650 MHz).

Last but not least, desktop processors include the Intel Core i5K and the Core i5KF processors that ship with a Max Turbo Frequency of up to 5.3 GHz, 14 processor cores (including six performance and eight efficient cores), and 20 processing threads. The Core i5K has an even less powerful Intel UHD Graphics 770 processor with a graphics dynamic frequency of 1550 MHz.

Common features across the lineup include two memory channels, support for up to 16 PCle 5.0 lanes, four PCle 4.0 lanes, Quick Sync Video, and Intel’s Deep Learning Boost.

The Core i9 14900HX leads the series with a Max Turbo Frequency of up to 5.8 GHz, 24 processing cores (eight performance and 16 efficiency cores), and 32 processing threads.

The Core i7 processor has two variants: 14700HX and 14650HX. While the former ships have a max turbo frequency of up to 5.5 GHz and 28 processor threads, the latter has a max turbo frequency of up to 5.2GHz and 24 processing threads. With respect to cores, the more powerful 14700HX version has 20 processing cores (eight performance and 12 efficient), whereas the 14650HX has 16 processing cores (with eight performance and eight efficient cores).

The Core i5 series also comes in two versions: 14500HX and 14450HX. The former ships have 14 processing cores, 14 processing threads, and a max turbo frequency of up to 4.9 GHz. The latter features ten processing cores, ten threads, and a max turbo frequency of up to 4.8 GHz.

All the models come with Intel UHD graphics and a memory capacity of 192GB.
