Intel Raptor Lake Refresh listed by OverclockersUK
It is less than one week before Intel launches its third generation of LGA1700 series.
OverclockersUK, one of the largest retailers in the United Kingdom, has now listed the Intel Raptor Lake Refresh CPUs. This retailer is known for releasing new hardware as soon as the official embargo is lifted. However, in this instance, the product pages for the new hardware went live ahead of schedule, with some of them already having been removed.
Fortunately, the hardware enthusiast and detective, @momomo_us, spotted the new CPU series on OCUK and noted the following prices: The 24-core Core i9-14900K will launch at £579 (K) and £560 (KF), the 20-core i7-14700K is expected to debut at £399 (KF), and the 16-core i5-14600K models will be priced at either £320 (K) or £300 (KF). These prices represent a single-digit increase compared to the current prices for the 13th Gen Core models.
Intel 13th Gen (Current) vs. 14th Gen Core (Launch) pricing (GBP)
- Core i9-13900K → Core i9-14900K: £569.99→ £578.99 (+1.6%)
- Core i9-13900KF → Core i9-14900KF: £539.99 → £559.99 (+3.7%)
- Core i7-13700K → Core i7-14700K: £399.99 → (missing)
- Core i7-13700KF → Core i7-14700KF: $379.99 → £398.99 (+5%)
- Core i5-13600K → Core i5-14600K: $299.99 → £319.99 (+6.7%)
- Core i5-13600KF → Core i5-14600KF: $278.99 → £299.99 (+7.5%)
It’s important to highlight that the 13th Gen Core series had significantly higher launch prices in the UK. However, these prices were largely influenced by the USD/GBP exchange rates at the time. Consequently, it is more appropriate to compare the prices of the new series to the current market rates rather than the launch prices of the 13th Gen Core CPUs.
The upcoming series is set to be officially announced on October 16th. Among the releases, there will be an update to Intel Z790 motherboards from reputable manufacturers such as ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, and ASRock. These companies are preparing to introduce enhanced versions of their existing models or potentially unveil entirely new motherboard designs.
