In terms of design, the 14700k boasts a sleek and modern aesthetic that will complement any gaming setup. Its ergonomic design ensures comfort during extended gaming sessions, while customizable RGB lighting adds a touch of personalization to your gaming rig.
Out of the three Raptor Lake refresh processors we’ve now had our hands-on, I have to say this one feels the best. Slightly better temperatures, close to 13900K performance and a price of just over 400 USD. It’s a lot of performance for your money. Performance can and will vary widely across different media outlets. That discrepancy stems from the motherboard manufacturers and model PL1 assignments versus determining the CPU’s configuration.
Anyway, utilizing motherboard defaults with optimizations turned on will also show a rise in the CPU’s temperature. In any case, adequate cooling is imperative to handle these heat surges, a scenario somewhat analogous to the Ryzen 7000 high-tier variants. For gamers, the Raptor Lake L2/L3 caches contribute significantly to heightened performance,
The 14th Core series processors harden Intel’s position in gaming performance. When examining resolutions that are CPU-constrained, Intel frequently holds a performance advantage, closely competing with the 7000 series X3D. The performance differences are typically minor, and not every user possesses a high-end graphics card priced above 1000 USD where you can measure most of that difference. In fact, a larger proportion of users might be using a graphics card like the GeForce RTX 4060/4080 or RX 7600/7800 XT, where the CPU’s performance becomes less relevant since the GPU emerges as the primary limitation.
When considering a transition to an entirely new platform, the total cost of ownership is a significant factor. Even though the price of DDR5 memory is projected to further decrease in the upcoming year. For Intel configurations, a minimum of 5200 MHz is advisable, but for both Intel and AMD, a 6000 MHz configuration might offer optimal performance.
The 125W TDP-rated Core i7-14700K is a processor that is allowed a staggering max 253 Watts (PL1+PL2) state, however, we’re seeing the PC moving towards close to 400 Watts under all-core load, deducting the motherboard and GPU from that value, and you’ll end up at 300~350 Watts. That does not mean the processor runs that wattage all the time, however for short bursts of time when needed the PC can pull that wattage, and yeah it’s a lot. Overall the temperatures peak high, but only for a short amount of time. You could cool this processor with a premium heatpipe-based cooler however we’d seriously advise a proper all-in-one liquid cooling kit to start with.
Our processor settles in the 80- to 90’ies C under a full 28-threaded load but with a poorer quality LCS we’ve seen that value climb to 90-95 degrees C.
As with all processors, you still have a bit of leash to overclock. With proper liquid cooling (an LCS kit with enough capacity),With these temps at hand.
we advise the voltage regulated by the motherboard (auto). For Core i7-14700K, this seems to be in the 5900~6000 MHz areas, again that’s all P cores.
That value is of course very impressive, we OCed to 6000 Mhz (all P cores) and can run a benchmarks stable.
