Intel is the company of Most important processors for PC gamerssomething that is reflected month after month in the different Steam hardware and software surveys in which we meet the leaders among players on this platform when it comes to CPU and GPU.
Today the American brand wants to further strengthen, if possible, its position in the market. announcing the new generation of 14th generation Intel Core processors with which it wants to offer a significant leap in performance in video games, taking advantage of the good results they have had in recent years with their hybrid architecture.
As far as video games are concerned, Intel promises that these 14th generation processors that will go on sale starting tomorrow, October 17, will offer up to 23% more performance compared to its competition, performing this test comparing an Intel Core i9-14900K against an AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D in starfieldall due to technologies applied to video games such as Intel APO application optimization or Intel Thread Director thread schedulingalthough these are internal tests of the brand itself, so it is better to wait for the different analyzes that will surely be published in the coming days to get a more realistic idea of the true leap in performance of these Intel processors.
