The 14th Gen processor also offers substantial benefits to gamers and content creators alike. Gamers can enjoy up to a 15% improvement in performance over previous generations, thanks to the processor’s high speeds and Intel’s Application Performance Optimization (APO) feature. For content creators working in demanding environments such as 3D production, the processor delivers up to a 73% improvement in performance compared to competing products, making it a formidable tool in compute-intensive workflows.

Some of the key features of the 14th Gen processors include:

  • Max turbo frequency up to 6.2 GHz with Intel® Thermal Velocity Boost.
  • 24 cores (8 Performance, 16 Efficient), 32 threads, 150W base power.
  • 36MB Intel Smart Cache, 20 PCIe lanes (16 PCIe 5.0, 4 PCIe 4.0).
  • Enhanced Intel® APO support, up to 11% performance uplift in 14 games.
  • Supports up to 192GB DDR5 5600 MT/s or DDR4 3200 MT/s memory.
  • Compatible with Z790 and Z690 motherboards; latest BIOS recommended.

“Extreme PC enthusiasts – especially gamers and creators – can now enjoy the i9-14900KS’ record-breaking 6.2 GHz frequency while taking their desktop experience to higher levels of performance than ever before,” Roger Chandler, Intel vice president.
