Intel’s upcoming Core i5-14600K mid-range Raptor Lake Refresh CPU — which is able to vie for a spot in our Finest CPUs checklist quickly, was benchmarked in Geenbench 6 as reported by @BenchLeaks on X (Twitter). The benchmark outcomes reveal that the chip solely hit 5.3GHz through the benchmark run, which is identical max turbo frequency because the i5-13600K. Regardless of this, the chip managed to tug forward of its predecessor within the Geekbench scores, by as much as 11%.
Within the single-core outcome, the brand new Raptor Lake Refresh chip scored 2819 factors, enabling the CPU to outperform the Core i5-13600K by 5.7% in the identical benchmark. Within the multi-core benchmark, the 14600K expanded its efficiency superiority to 11.2% in comparison with its predecessor, once more, even supposing each chips are working at nearly an identical clock speeds.

The benchmark outcomes are spectacular, as a result of truth each chips are reportedly working at an identical clocks. However it’s price taking these outcomes with a pinch of salt since we do not know the complete system specs of the 14600K or 13600K check methods. For all we all know, the 14600K could possibly be working with considerably quicker reminiscence enabling it to run faster in Geekbench 6.
Nonetheless, the clock speeds reported by Geekbench 6 are probably the most fascinating facet of the 14600K benchmark outcomes. Though the clock speeds aren’t spectacular, the chip we’re taking a look at might be an engineering or pre-production pattern, that means that the chip may have greater clocks sooner or later as soon as it is production-ready. If true, the outcomes we’re seeing from this pre-production/engineering pattern are fairly good, as we’re normally accustomed to seeing decrease clock speeds of engineering samples in comparison with their predecessors.
What we do not know is how excessive Intel will clock the complete retail manufacturing 14600K, that can rely upon how a lot clock pace they’ll wring out of its refreshed Raptor Lake structure. But when earlier rumors are something to go by, the 14600K may doubtlessly be clocked as excessive as 5.7-5.9GHz — so long as the i7 and i9 variants are clocked at 6GHz or better.
Raptor Lake Refresh’s launch date is quick approaching so we are going to know quickly sufficient the place Intel will clock its next-generation mid-range desktop chips.
