ECSM expected that they would launch both Core-K and non-K models, a practice that Intel has adhered to for its desktop CPUs in recent years. The non-K models are anticipated to debut in the first week of 2024, suggesting a potential launch at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
ECSM also acknowledges the upcoming desktop processor codename called Arrow Lake, which promises to bring a truly unique update to the Intel desktop series.
Regarding platform compatibility, the 14th Gen Core series Refresh is expected to be compatible with all existing LGA1700 motherboards that have the latest BIOS, with one exception. The forthcoming Core i7-14700K processor is rumored to feature a new configuration of 8 Performance cores and 12 Efficient cores, which may require a new firmware update for compatibility.
