Intel 14th Gen Non-K CPUs Only Offer Single Digit Performance Boost Compared to 13th Gen

Share

Intel has launched the new 14th generation non-K (not overclockable) CPUs, Intel Core 14900, 14700, 14500, 14400, and 14100. All of these CPUs have the same specifications as the previous generation 13th gen Intel CPUs, with only the i7-14700 getting a bump to 20 cores (8P+12E) compared to the previous generation i7-13700 that only featured 16 cores (8P+8E). Benchmarks reveal that the Intel 14th gen non-K CPUs have lackluster performance compared to the previous generation and only offer single-digit relative performance boosts.

Intel 14th Gen Core 14900, 14700, 14500, 14400, 14100 Performance Vs 13th Gen CPUs

The following is the test setup used to test the CPUs:

  • Motherboard: Gigabyte Z790 AORUS Elite AX-W DDR5
  • Memory: G.Skill DDR5 6000 MHz CL30 (30-38-38-96)
  • Graphics Card: Nvidia RTX 4090 24GB Founder’s Edition
  • Power Supply: ASUS ROG STRIX 1000W Gold PSU
  • Storage: SK Hynix Platinum P41 2TB
  • OS: Windows 11 Pro 23H2
  • Drivers: Intel Chipset Driver 10.1.19600.8418, Nvidia GeForce Game Ready Driver 546.33

All the Intel 14th gen and 13th-gen CPUs were tested using 4 benchmarks and 5 games including:

  • Cinebench R23.200
  • Cinebench 2024.10
  • Blender 4.0.2
  • Handbrake 1.7.2
  • Lost Ark
  • PUBG
  • Cyberpunk 2077
  • Lies of P
  • Baldur’s Gate 3

Conclusion

If you already have an Intel 13th generation CPU then upgrading to an Intel 14th gen CPU will not be worth it keeping in mind the performance difference. I can only recommend this refresh to people who are on a much older generation and do not want to skip another generation. With that said, AMD does have competitive options that offer better value for money.
