14th Gen Intel desktop computer launched in mid-October

called a Chinese media outlet enthusiastic citizen (ECSM), which has a track record of leaking CPU makers’ plans before they’re released to the public, claims that Intel plans to launch the 14th generation series in mid-October.

ECSM specifies that the launch will happen in week 42 of this year, which falls between October 17th and October 23rd. Presumably this is based on yet to be released Intel roadmaps.

The launch schedule will follow the usual pattern of splitting Core-K and non-K models, which have been the standard for Intel desktop CPUs for the past few years. The latter is expected to launch in the first week of 2024, so one can probably expect another CES launch.

As for platform support, it’s clear that the update will work with all current LGA1700 motherboards that have the latest BIOS, with the exception of one processor. The upcoming Core i7-14700K is said to use a new configuration of 8 Performance and 12 efficient cores, which may need new firmware.

ECSM also mentions its next generation desktop platform called Arrow Lake. This architecture will bring a real refresh to Intel’s desktop series with completely new designs and a different socket (most likely LGA-1851). The report lists Intel Z890, B860, and H810 motherboard chipsets as possible options, with no plans for the H870 chipset this time around. This means that Intel has matched the naming of its core consumer and platform products to AMD: Core 3/5/7/9 vs. Ryzen 3/5/7/9 and Z890/B860/H810 vs. X670/B650/B620.

Interestingly, the same media reported last year that the 13th generation “Lake Raptor” would debut in mid-October, following its planned unveiling in September. It turns out that’s true, and enthusiasts may now feel a sense of familiarity, since Intel seems to follow an annual update cycle that’s almost identical to the update.
