Intel's upcoming desktop processors from the 14th Gen Core series have recently surfaced on various Canadian retailer websites, including PC Canada and Canada Computers. PC Canada stands out as one of the early adopters, listing these CPUs and indicating an approximate 4% average price increase compared to the 13th Gen Core series.
As the release of this new series draws nearer, it's expected that the preliminary pricing data on these platforms will evolve into finalized values. In a similar vein, Canada Computers has comprehensively documented the entire lineup, signaling a projected average price increment. While these processors weren't immediately visible on the Canada Computers platform, a specific search for the CPU models uncovered their specifications. Among the six indexed models, five displayed detailed information, including pricing in CAD.
A closer examination of the new SKU pricing reveals variances ranging from 0% to 7%. Notably, the Core i5-14600KF maintains the same price tag as its predecessor, the 13600KF, at CAD $399. However, the Core i9-14900K is notably absent from the listings.
Comparative pricing between Intel's 13th Gen and 14th Gen Core processors (in CAD) is as follows (as reported by videocardz):
- Core i9-13900K to Core i9-14900K: $769 to (unlisted)

Intel is poised to launch its updated desktop K-series on October 16th, with the commercial release scheduled for the following day. Despite the considerable anticipation surrounding the product, Intel has been reticent about disclosing pricing or detailed specifications during its recent Innovation event. Consequently, most of the available information to date stems from unconfirmed sources and speculative sources.
