10/26/2023 Product News

The 14th generation Intel® Core™ desktop processors of the K and KF series – codenamed "Raptor Lake Refresh" - expand Rutronik's portfolio of high-end gaming equipment. The Intel® Core™ processors feature the Intel Performance Hybrid architecture with performance cores designed to meet the demands of the most demanding games. Increased multitasking power and E-cores allow extensive background applications while gaming. The Intel® Core™ i9, Intel® Core™ i7, Intel® Core™ i5 desktop processors are available at

The Intel® Core™ processors of the K and KF series, designed for demanding gaming software, allow higher and more constant FPSs (Frames Per Second) and faster loading times. The Intel® Thread Director ensures uninterrupted gaming without jerking despite parallel running background applications. The processors feature enhanced connectivity with support for Thunderbolt™ 47, Wi-Fi 7 and 6E, as well as up to Bluetooth 5.4 and DDR4 or DDR5 RAM.

Processor models with the K designation have an unlocked and freely adjustable multiplier with additional overclocking flexibility that allows the user to increase the clock speed of the processor to achieve higher performance than standard specifications. A further increase in processor performance is achieved by overclocking with the Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility (XTU).

The processor models marked KF essentially correspond to the K series in terms of unlocked multipliers and overclocking options, but are primarily aimed at systems suitable for performance and gaming and therefore come without an integrated graphics unit.

Intel® Core™ i9 Processors feature a performance hybrid architecture designed for intelligent performance, optimized creating, and enhanced tuning.
