14th generation Raptor Lake Refresh processor...

No better than my 13900k. Wasted money for no performance

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.
