In the tech people are talking about Intel’s upcoming Raptor Lake Refresh processors. The Core i9-14900K is getting a lot of attention for how well it renders. Here’s the benchmark showdown, where we compare Intel’s new CPU to the competition, especially the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X.
Intel Core i9-14900K Rendering
The Core i9-14900K is set to be Intel’s flagship processor in the Raptor Lake Refresh series. Recent benchmark results suggest that, for now, it reigns supreme among Intel’s offerings. The CPU underwent rigorous testing in two rendering applications: V-Ray 5 and Blender Benchmark v3.6. The results paint an interesting picture of its capabilities.
Blender Benchmark v3.6 Results:
The average score for the Intel Core i9-14900K in the Blender Benchmarks was 559.86. This impressive performance is 6% better than the Core i9-13900KS, which is a big change. But it’s important to note that it’s not as fast as the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X, which shows that AMD’s chip still has a competitive edge.
As we said in our article “AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D Gaming Benchmarks Leak,” the R9 7050XD was already ahead in benchmarks from Intel Core i9 13900K.
|Ryzen 9 7950X||570.5|
|Ryzen 9 7950X3D||550.77|
V-Ray 5 Benchmark Results:
In a single benchmark test, the Intel Core i9-14900K got a score of 27,790 on the V-Ray 5 benchmark. Compared to its predecessor, the Core i9-13900KS, which scored 26,593 points, this is a nice 5% performance boost.
Even though this is a good thing, it’s important to note that the Ryzen 9 7950X still has a performance edge.
|Ryzen 9 7950X||28,995|
|Ryzen 9 7950X3D||28,464|
Specs and Release Date:
The Intel Core i9-14900K has up to 36 MB of Smart Cache and 24 cores and 32 threads in an 8+16 configuration. It has a base TDP of 125W (253W PL2) and a base clock speed of 3.2 GHz. With Thermal Velocity Boost, it can speed up to 6.0 GHz. This is +200 MHz faster than the Core i9-13900K, which makes it a great choice for rendering tasks.
Even though the Intel Core i9-14900K does well in rendering tests, it’s not quite as fast as the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X. But it’s important to keep in mind that the 14900K performs much better than its predecessor and has more cores and a higher clock speed.
