Budget gaming processor: AMD beats Intel Core i5-14400

AMD also offers the intriguing new Ryzen 7 5700X3D. These chips aren’t as effective in productivity applications because they are built on the Zen 3 architecture from the prior generation

These small enhancements don’t seem to indicate that real-world performance will rise significantly over the previous generation of chips

The Raptor Lake Refresh design is fibbed on the “Intel 7” manufacturing node, just like the higher-end K-Series devices that Intel unveiled last year

This also applies to the lower-power models. Updated 13th-generation Raptor Lake CPUs from 2022 are used in Intel’s latest chips

Intel’s F-series Core i5-14400F, which lacks the 24-EU integrated UHD Graphics 730 engine and requires a detached GPU

The latest Core i5 variants fit onto Intel’s 600 and 700-series motherboards, much like their K-Series predecessors did

When the power constraints are removed, the included cooler is sufficient for multi-threaded workloads and can manage the chip at the lower 65W/148W power limits
