Intel brings 14th Gen Raptor Lake Refresh HX-series mobile CPUs

by on09 January 2024

Up to 24-cores, higher boost clock, and 192GB DDR5 support

In addition to plenty of 14th gen Raptor Lake Refresh desktop SKUs, Intel has unveiled its new 14th Gen Raptor Lake Refresh HX-series mobile processors at CES 2024 in Las Vegas. These will bring improved performance thanks to higher clocks and other improvements and even promise some decent gaming performance, especially thanks to Intel APO.

In addition to higher clocks across the board, Intel's new 14th Gen HX-series Raptor Lake Refresh mobile processors also get updated connectivity with the latest WiFi 7, Bluetooth 5.4, and Thunderbolt 5 on select models. Intel is leaving up to vendors to decide if they want to implement WiFi 7 as the platform comes with support for WiFi 6E with WiFi 7 support via discrete controller. The same goes for Thunderbolt 5, which is supported via Intel's own controllers.

Intel also implemented the new APO (Application Optimization) technology for gaming performance, XTU (Extreme Tuning Utility), Speed Optimizer for one-click overclocking, and XMP (Extreme Memory Profile) support.

When it comes to the new 14th Gen HX-series Raptor Lake Refresh mobile processor lineup, the flagship is the Core i9-14900HX, which Intel claims is enough to beat both AMD's Ryzen 9 7945HX and Ryzen 9 7945HX3D in gaming. Of course, we should wait for some non-Intel benchmarks to confirm these results. Intel has a total of five SKUs, ranging from the 10-core/16-thread Core i5-14450HX, up to the aforementioned Core i9-14900HX, a 24-core/32-thread SKU.

Intel says there are over 60 new laptop designs from the usual suspects including Acer, Alienware, Asus, Gigabyte, HP, Lenovo, MSI, Razer and others, so these should start showing up on retail/e-tail shelves pretty soon.
