Powerful CPU that offers a close enough performance to the 13900KS. Games and rendering jobs work like a smooth charm!

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

This CPU is incredibly well-placed for a refresh. The i9 14900k(640 euros) offers similar performance to the i9 13900KS(800 Euros) while being available for much less money. The new gen motherboards are also much better. So if you were thinking about getting the 13th gen i9 then the 14th gen is a no-brainer since it offers flawless performance for both gaming and productivity tasks. This is especially true since AMD's "equivalent" 7950x3d is haunted by software bugs and "features" such as needing to have Xbox game bar open 24/7 and having their motherboards overvolt and kill the CPUs.

Reasonable refresh that offers more performance out of the box than the 13900KS for lower price and uses the same socket as 12th and 13th gen meaning you can easily upgrade if you want to and all you have to do is update your BIOS version if you haven't.

For long years Intel was making a great work, building better and better CPUs, and doing it for people with low $ in pocket and people with more $$, Thanks again to Intel to make our lives to Good!

 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.
