Intel 14th Gen CPUs For Laptops Spotted Right Before The Desktop CPU Launch

Intel 14th Gen CPUs For Laptops Spotted Right Before The Desktop CPU Launch

Intel’s high-end HX-series processors are designed for heavyweight gaming laptops – think ROG STRIX SCAR, MSI GT TITAN and the likes. These chips are based on their desktop K-series counterparts, albeit with much lower power limits to accommodate the (relatively) limited cooling capacity in the laptop form factor.

Leaker @momomo_us has spotted entries that references to the 14th Gen HX-series processors: i9-14900HX, i7-14700HX and i7-14650HX). A previous leak has also pointed to the existence of i5-14500HX, which is said to correspond to the same core configuration as its desktop counterpart (6P+8E). As for the two Core i7s, the difference will be down to amount of E-cores – 12 versus 8, the former of which matches the recently-revealed i7-14700K.

Given what we’ve seen in terms of improvements made on the desktop Raptor Lake Refresh models – all models receiving a +200MHz clock bump – the same could apply to laptop counterparts as well. The underlying architecture will remain for another generation, though it’s unclear if that also meant features like Intel Application Optimization (APO) and XTU AI Assist may make its way into laptops next year.

On that note, given the typical launch window of laptop CPUs, we’ll likely be seeing the official news on the Raptor Lake Refresh-HX series in CES 2024 (set in January). Until then, take this with a pinch of salt as usual.

Pokdepinion: So that meant gaming laptops next year will likely be less exciting than usual in terms of performance – it’s up to OEMs to see what kind of improvement they can made elsewhere to sweeten the deal.
