Intel Raptor Lake Refresh has a release date

The Intel 14th Gen Core desktop lineup is scheduled to be announced in just over a week. However, in its usual manner, Intel won’t release the CPUs to the market for another month.

Our sources indicate that Intel plans to launch the new series on October 17th, which is when the CPUs will become available for purchase, and reviews are expected to go live. A day earlier, on October 16th, Intel imposed an ‘ad’ embargo, suggesting that we may hear more about potential preorders from retail partners.

It’s important to note that this release date encompasses only six models, specifically the K and KF-series, including the Core i9-14900K (24-cores), Core i7-14700K (20-cores), and Core i5-14600K (14-cores), along with their respective KF variants lacking integrated graphics support. All of these are unlocked 125W TDP models, with non-K series variants featuring TDPs of 65W and lower, expected to arrive around CES 2024 next year.

Intel is gearing up to announce the Raptor Lake Refresh series at Innovation 2023, now scheduled for September 19th. The company is expected to unveil several other products, including the mobile Core 100 Ultra lineup, codenamed “Meteor Lake,” and possibly some mobile rebrands from the Raptor Lake Refresh series. Additionally, there are expectations that Intel might provide updates on Arc GPUs, especially given the availability of the new ACM-G12 GPU, and the delayed launch of its Arc A580 GPU for almost a year.
