Intel is finalizing its 14th Gen processor range. As we draw closer to a launch, it's not uncommon to get a few leaks including performance estimates, a release date or a new feature. ASRock is the source of these leaks. Some are more reliable than others. This is the closest thing to an official announcement until launch day.
Perhaps the most interesting thing from ASRock's blog post (via IT Home) is a summary of performance estimates. It expects that single-core and multi-core performances will improve by between 4% and 8%. These estimates are in line with the performance we can expect to see without an architectural change. These increases are due to increases in clock speed, power budgets and E core counts.
ASRock states in its post that 14th Gen processors support DDR5-6400, the fastest JEDEC speed supported to date. That's a substantial increase over 13th Gen Raptor Lake's DDR5-5600 support. Unofficially, 12th Gen processors also support faster memory. However, these speeds are categorized under overclocked.
This would indicate a good improvement for the memory control…
