How many cores, threads, and max CPU clocks? Intel is cranking its flagship Core i9-14900K processor up to a whopping 6.0GHz using its Thermal Velocity Boost technology, with 24 cores (8 P-Cores and 16 E-Cores) and 32 threads in total. The Core i7-14700K has 20 cores (8 P-Cores and 12 E-Cores) and 28 threads in total, clocking up to 5.6GHz using Turbo Boox Max Technology 3.0. The slowest member in the Core i5-14600K has 14 cores (6 P-Cores and 8 E-Cores) and 20 threads, boosting up to 5.3GHz max.

  • Intel Core i9-14900K: 24 cores, 32 threads @ up to 6.0GHz
  • Intel Core i9-14900KF: 24 cores, 32 threads @ up to 6.0GHz (no integrated GPU)
  • Intel Core i7-14700K: 20 cores, 28 threads @ up to 5.6GHz
  • Intel Core i7-14700KF: 20 cores, 28 threads @ up to 5.6GHz (no integrated GPU)
  • Intel Core i5-14600K: 14 cores, 20 threads @ up to 5.3GHz
  • Intel Core i5-14600KF: 14 cores, 20 threads @ up to 5.3GHz (no integrated GPU)

DDR5-5600 + DDR4-3200 RAM supported: Intel's new 14th Gen Core "Raptor Lake Refresh" CPUs will support either up to DDR5-5600 in the right motherboard, as well as DDR4-3200 if you didn't want to pony up the money to buy a new 700 series motherboard. If you did, however, buy a new Z790 motherboard for example, then you could couple it with some higher-end DDR5-5600 memory out of the box.

Only the Core i9-14900K + 14900KF has Thermal Velocity Boost: Why does this matter? Well, with Thermal Velocity Boost on the flagship Core i9-14900K and 14900KF, the CPU will boost those P-Cores up to a whopping 6.0GHz. The Core i7-14700K under it will only boost up to 5.6GHz through Intel Turbo Boost Max 3.0 technology.
