Gigabyte inadvertently has disclosed specifications for Intel’s non-K 14th Generation Core CPUs geared at mainstream PCs, with processor base power (PBP) ratings of 35W and 65W. Interestingly, this is the first time Gigabyte has released specifications for Intel’s forthcoming chips before Intel does. @momomo_us took notice of the publication.
As it turns out, Intel’s 14th Generation Core ‘Raptor Lake Refresh’ processors won’t reuse Alder Lake hardware like some of the company’s 13th Generation Core CPUs did, instead using Raptor Lake B0 and Raptor Lake C0 silicon exclusively. This would imply that if these processors had an unlocked multiplier, their overclocking capability would be higher.
Gigabyte’s leak suggest the CPU has low power consumption
The new silicon may have a marginally reduced power consumption, which may be significant for compact PC builds because Intel and other chipmakers frequently evaluate yields and reduce performance variability by modifying process technology.
This week’s releases of three unlocked components give Intel’s Raptor Lake Refresh family a total of 20 SKUs. Over time, we anticipate the company to grow by offering more affordable Pentium and Celeron branded products.
The 14th Gen Core core family has six processors with locked multipliers that have a processor base power (PBP) of 35W and are intended for small PCs. 11 CPUs with PBPs of 58W, 60W, and 65W are designed for mainstream builds.
The future 14th Generation CPU core counts from Intel and Gigabyte are still a secret. We may, however, speculate about these items based on what we know about the dies Intel plans to utilize.
