Intel will soon be offering its 14th Gen Refreshed Raptor Lake-HX in brand new laptops aiming at the high-performance gaming segment.
Intel 14th Gen Raptor Lake-HX Refresh CPUs To Further Boost High-End Gaming Laptops
Based on a post by Momomo_US, it looks like Intel is preparing at least three 14th Gen Raptor Lake Refresh CPUs for the laptop segment. These CPUs will be targeted at high-end gaming solutions & certain SKUs will come with a spec boost, delivering more performance uplifts than 13th Gen chips. The following chips have so far been leaked for Intel’s 14th Gen Raptor Lake-HX refresh family:
- Core i9-14900HX (8+16)
- Core i7-14700HX (8+12)
- Core i7-14650HX (8+8)
- Core i5-14500HX (6+8)
The Intel Core i9-14900HX will be the flagship offering which would offer the same 8 P-Core and 16 E-Core configuration as the existing Core i9-13900HX chip. This will be followed by the Intel Core i7-14700HX which will feature 8 P-Cores but a 12 E-Core configuration which is 50% more E-Cores vs the Core i7-13700HX and should provide a decent performance uplift. The Intel Core i7-14650HX is also mentioned to utilize an 8 P-Core and 8 E-Core die which will be an upgrade over the 13650HX, a 6 P-Core and 8 E-Core configuration. Lastly, we have the Core i5-14500HX which will utilize the 6 P-Core and 8 E-Core, the same as the 13500HX.
Besides the core spec bump on certain SKUs, all 14th-Gen Raptor Lake-HX Refresh CPUs will offer a clock speed bump. The Raptor Lake-S Refresh chips feature a +200 MHz boost so we might see a similar clock bump in the laptop refresh. Besides that, the upgraded configs will also carry more cache that can help in gaming applications. The CPUs will also come with new designs that support the higher TDPs and thermal envelopes of these chips. It looks like 14th-generation laptops will mostly be using NVIDIA’s RTX 40 GPUs since those are the most premium graphics solutions one can find on the mobility platforms.
Intel’s Raptor Lake-HX 14th Gen Refresh CPU family is currently scheduled for an early 2024 or CES launch. We can expect loads of laptops after the chips are officially introduced. The follow-up to the 14th Gen family will come later in early 2025 with the Arrow Lake-HX chips which we detailed here recently.
