Harukaze5719 on X (Twitter) has noticed a pattern of the unreleased Intel Core i3-14100 promoting in China. The Raptor Lake Refresh-based chip affords 4 cores at 3.5GHz, a primary iGPU for video output, and encoding/decoding.
This Core i3-14100 was noticed on Goofish earlier than the official launch of the ultimate model, priced at ¥850 (£95). Because the CPU is but to launch, the model in query is a QS (Qualification Pattern). These non-final variations are likely to poorly overclock, if in any respect, and may additionally come clocked a bit decrease. QS and ES (Engineering Pattern) phrases are fairly widespread on Ebay and Chinese language storefronts, typically bought fairly cheaply.
Whereas the CPU IHS (Built-in Warmth Spreader) doesn’t carry any QS or ES markings, the vendor signifies that it’s a QS chip. In addition they assert that the frequency can be an identical to the ultimate launch.
Since Intel’s 14th Gen chips are refreshes of the thirteenth Gen, this i3-14100 will in all probability fare equally to the i3-13100. We are able to anticipate 4-cores and 8-threads with none E-cores, clocked at 3.5GHz as talked about by the Goofish publish. This represents a tiny 100MHz uplift in frequency, which means that the increase clocks may sit round 4.6GHz. Energy consumption ought to keep roughly the identical, with base and most turbo energy hovering round 60W and 110W respectively.
Likewise, the built-in graphics portion ought to characteristic Intel’s UHD Graphics 730, providing 24 Execution Models clocked at 300MHz base and 1.5GHz increase. The iGPU inside may be small, nevertheless it’s nonetheless mighty sufficient to help as much as 4 shows.
Intel will supposedly launch the non-Okay sequence CPUs in January subsequent yr, with an official announcement throughout Intel’s December 14 occasion.
