Intel's Core i9-14900KF Outperforms Ryzen 9 7950X3D in Geekbench 6 Benchmark

Intel's Raptor Lake Refresh CPUs, such as the Core i9-14900KF, are making their mark in Geekbench 6 benchmarks, showcasing impressive performance. 

These benchmarks shed light on the capabilities of the Core i9-14900KF, which lacks an integrated GPU but packs a punch in processing power. This CPU shares an architecture resembling the Core i9-13900K, consisting of 24 cores and 32 threads in an 8P+16E configuration. This denotes eight P-cores coupled with 16 E-cores. Preliminary data indicates a possible 200 MHz increase in clock speed for the P-cores over the Core i9-13900K, a detail supported by recent benchmarks.

Although preliminary specifications suggest the Core i9-14900KF might match the performance of the Core i9-13900KS special edition, it's prudent to interpret these with discretion, given the limited available data. Moreover, the system specifications for the Core i9-14900K might vary, influencing the outcomes.
