The Intel Core i7-14700K CPU is part of the Raptor Lake Refresh family, and we’re reviewing it today. These benchmarks including gaming tests vs. the AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D, R5 5800X3D, the i7-13700K, and more. We also look at production performance to find the best CPUs for video editing (with Adobe Premiere), Photoshop, 3D modeling & animation, and more, including tests against the AMD 7950X, 7700X, and other CPUs. Our next reviews will look at the Intel Core i9-14900K and Core i5-14600K CPUs from Intel, refreshing their 2023 lineup.
