The new Intel Core 14000 also known as Raptor Lake Refresh, which will be introduced to the public on October 17, is likely to be hot, at least in terms of the power loss and waste heat associated with it. Motherboard manufacturer MSI is now giving its current motherboards with 600 and 700 chipsets a higher maximum temperature for the latest generation of processors. Only at 115 degrees (“TjMax”) should so-called “throttling” begin, i.e. throttling by reducing clock frequencies or skipping clocks.
The new functionality should give CPUs more freedom

As User In order to force this behavior on the CPU, the “CPU Over Temp Protection” option must also be activated. Accordingly, the function should only be available if there is a Core 14000 in the system, which will likely be hungrier than the Core 13000.
Intel is now technically still standing
From a purely technical point of view, little or nothing happens with this generation change and so new CPUs will continue to be produced at 10nm++ (“Intel 7”) and rely on up to 8 P-Cores (“Raptor Cove”). and up to 16 electronic centers (“Gracemont”). However, due to the higher clock frequency, the consumption should be higher.
This would also explain why MSI is giving its motherboards a supposedly exclusive Raptor Lake Refresh feature. The maximum temperature (“TjMax”) of CPU cores is usually 107°C before throttling and clock frequency drops occur.
This is expected to happen on October 17. Then we’ll see if the Raptor Lake Refresh can do more than just produce hot air. The real surprise is not to be expected, as MSI had already mistakenly confirmed a long time ago that the update is approximately 3 percent faster.
