The last of the 14th Gen CPUs teased
Intel’s approach to unveiling their upcoming desktop and mobile CPUs has been somewhat gradual. Instead of making a big announcement, they’ve been dropping hints and confirmations on social media timelines without going into details. Notably, Intel has already rolled out its 14th Gen Core-S 125W Desktop CPUs. It’s an open secret that the company intends to introduce 65W models in the near future, possibly during CES 2024, the usual platform for such series announcements.
In a special event held in Asia, Intel confirmed the existence of both the 65W desktop models and the upcoming Core-HX series for laptops. This development shows that Intel is getting ready to offer a full desktop lineup for the 14th Gen Core series and refresh the 55W laptop segment for high-end gaming laptops.
Additionally, Intel disclosed its intentions to cater to the Chinese market with special editions. Every LGA1700 series launch includes such models, like the i5-13490F or i7-13790F, which feature dies from higher-end variants, offering larger caches and higher clock speeds compared to the global lineup. But it’s important to know that these components won’t be available everywhere.
Intel has now officially outlined its plans for the final 14th Gen Core CPUs, marking the end of this older naming convention as the company shifts its focus toward Core Ultra and non-Ultra models without the “i” designation.
Looking ahead, Intel has scheduled a special event for December 14th to introduce the Intel Core 100 series based on Meteor Lake and 5th Gen Xeon Scalable “Emerald Rapids”. It remains uncertain whether the remaining 14th Gen series will be part of this event or debut in the following year, as per their customary release schedule.
