The source @wxnod recently shared a BIOS (UEFI) screenshot showing that the Intel i7-14700K processor can be overclocked to 6.3GHz.
The screenshot released this time uses MSI’s MPG Z690 EDGE TI WiFi DDR4 motherboard, the BIOS version number is “E7D31IMS.AD0”, and the new version adds support for the 14th generation processor.
Since this motherboard only supports DDR4 memory, performance should be lower compared to the DDR5 version.
The screenshot information shows that the clock frequency of the Intel i7-14700K processor is 6.3GHz and the voltage is 1.384V. Since this overclocking is done at the BOIS level, its stability cannot be judged at present.
It was previously reported that the Core i7-14700K uses an 8+12 core configuration, with a total of 20 cores and 28 threads, which is a larger upgrade than the existing i7-13700K (8+8, 3.4~5.4GHz, 30MB).
This CPU is equipped with 33 MB smart cache, the base frequency is 3.4 GHz, and the TBMT3 frequency is up to 5.6 GHz, which is also 200 MHz higher than the 13700K, and the performance is expected to increase by about 5-10%.
