MSI unimpressed with 14th Gen Core series

MSI made a mistake of sharing an unlisted video which has now leaked out. At the time of writing, the video was still available.

This leak involves a product training video showing MSI’s latest Intel 700 motherboard series and upcoming PC cases. While the majority of the video focuses on improvements for these motherboards, there is a slide explaining Intel’s next-gen Core series in a very short form.

This slide has confirmed that Intel’s 14th Gen Core series will see no major core count upgrades. Only one of the upcoming K-series CPUs will see a core change for its hybrid configuration of Performance and Efficient. The Core i7-14700K is getting 12 Efficient cores, which is an upgrade over 8 E-cores the Core i7-13700K.

The Core i9-14900K, now confirmed by MSI as well, will use the same 8P+16E configuration. This also applies to Core i5-14600K with 6P+8E config. Worth adding that Intel is scheduled to launch only the K and KF-series next month with non-K models coming early next year.

The CPU series will use the same Intel 7 process technology and will only provide higher DDR5 frequency support. The company confirms that Intel 14th Gen Core is 3% faster on average compared to current-gen series. The most important upgrade involves the Core i7-14700K which has up to 17% faster multi-threaded (MT) performance due to extra cores.

Intel will officially announce a new series at Innovation 2023 in September. Update: the video has been taken private.
