14th generation Raptor Lake Refresh processor...

The i-5 14600k (6P+8E/20T) is a gaming/workstation powerhouse CPU. Intel selectively binned their elite 13th series Raptor Lake chipsets and saved their best chips for these 14th gen. Raptor Lake Refresh CPUs. In factory-clocked models of the box. The overall thermals are improved on the 14th gen as power consumption consistently averaged anywhere from 17w to 80+w (!!) lower power use during high performance loads, which can result in much higher overclocks compared to previous 12th and 13th gen Intel offerings. As a final nail in the coffin, the 14600k can theoretically be overclocked higher than the 13600k due to the higher quality silicon on 14th gen. chips resulting in massive performance-to-value consumer gains across the board. The 14600K is currently priced lower than the 13600k, so this is a no-brainer upgrade for the most bang-for-your-buck CPU upgrade this generation.—Mar '24

Amazing for the price. There's no point going the AMD route nowadays as Intel offers more compatibility (DDR4) and much better price to performance. Not sure why anyone would spend more for a worse processor.—Nov '23

 Frequently Asked Questions

 Best User Rated

Why does UserBenchmark have a bad reputation on reddit?
Marketers operate thousands of reddit accounts. Our benchmarks expose their spiel so they attack our reputation.
Why don’t PC brands endorse UserBenchmark?
Brands make boatloads on flagships like the 4090 and 14900KS. We help users get similar real-world performance for less money.
Why don’t youtubers promote UserBenchmark?
We don't pay youtubers, so they don't praise us. Moreover, our data obstructs youtubers who promote overpriced or inferior products.
Why does UserBenchmark have negative trustpilot reviews?
The 200+ trustpilot reviews are mostly written by virgin marketing accounts. Real users don't give a monkey's about big brands.
Why is UserBenchmark popular with users?
Instead of pursuing brands for sponsorship, we've spent 13 years publishing real-world data for users.
