The latest range of Intel Core 14th generation processors will be released soon. The company has an event planned for the December launch of the 14th generation Meteor Lake mobile chips. However, it looks like more 14th generation chips are coming to laptops, but they won’t be based on the Meteor Lake architecture. The Intel Corre i7-14700HX was recently spotted on Geekbench and it showed that this is quite a capable chip. Here’s everything you need to know.
i7-14700HX Benchmark Reveals Exciting Gains
First, you may wonder why there is a ‘i‘ in the name of the processor. Intel announced the processor rebranding a long time ago. There is a simple explanation: the i7-14700HX is most likely not will be based on the Meteor Lake architecture. So it looks like Intel plans to have both Meteor lake like Raptor Lake Refresh based processors under the 14th generation lineup. That’s the best speculation we have yet, and Intel will officially reveal more about it soon.
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s now talk about the i7-14700HX. This new processor has scored 17,475 points in the multinuclear Geekbench 6 benchmark. That’s a big performance improvement over the last generation i7–13700HX processor, which typically scores between 13,000 and 14,000 points in the same test
The new 14th generation i7 processor comes with a also a higher core numberwhich is the main feature that contributes to the better performance of this new CPU.
You can use the leaked benchmarkthat is uploaded to the Geekbench database here. The laptop being tested was a Acer Nitro fashion model. Therefore, we can expect this processor to make its way into a future gaming laptop from Acer. The Geekbench result also tells us a few exciting details about the upcoming Intel Core i7-14700HX mobile CPU:
- Number of core/wire: 20 cores, 28 threads
- Maximum CPU frequency: 5.287GHz
- Code name: Raptor Lake
Please note that these details come from a leaked benchmark and not from Intel’s official specs. We’ll know more when they officially release these CPUs sometime later this year. The specs are an upgrade over the i7-13700HX, which had a lower core and thread count of 16 cores of 24 wires. It will be interesting to see how the new HX series processors compare Core Ultra chips, which will also fall under the 14th generation lineup.
