New Chips for Laptop

Underpinning these advancements, the newly introduced Core 3 100U, Core 5 120U, and Core 7 150U for laptops offer up to 10 cores. They are configured in a 2 P (performance cores) + 8 E (efficiency cores) layout. They boast support for technologies like Thunderbolt 4 (not yet featuring the latest version), WiFi 6E, LPDDR5(X) memory, and PCIe 4.0 SSDs with up to 8 lanes. Depending on the model, the integrated graphics units range from 64 to 96 EU.

While these processors might not raise eyebrows in terms of sheer performance due to their TDP ranging from 15 to 55 W. They do, however, appear to present a highly competitive offering within the ultrathin laptop segment. Particularly intriguing is Intel’s hint at potential future derivatives compatible with WiFi 7, as suggested during their conference.

Expanded Lineup for Desktops

On the other front, Intel has also announced the full range of 14th generation processors for desktop systems. This completes the usual cycle of initially showcasing high-powered chips followed by more generalized hardware. The array is extensive, covering the low-power T series (35 W). Additionally, it includes notably more capable chips like the i9-14900, boasting 24 cores and a potent iGPU. As customary, there will be versions available with and without integrated graphics (F models).

In contrast to the laptop-focused chips, these updated Raptor Lake variants (RPL-R in Intel’s jargon) offer compatibility with new WiFi 7 networks. Additionally, they provide support for PCIe Gen 5.0, USB 3.2, and user-selectable DDR4 or DDR5 memory options.As for performance enhancements, Intel is aiming for a near 15% increase in gaming and productivity. This figure isn’t revolutionary but aligns with expectations for a new generational cycle.

Availability and Integration

These new chips, tailored for both laptops and desktops, are all set for integration. Many devices set to be unveiled during this CES already include them.
