Major Issues Reported with Latest Intel Core i9 Processors

An engineer from Chiphell has researched to find out the stability rate for Intel's Core i9 CPU 13900K as well as 14900K. The Intel hasn't yet pinpointed the cause of the issues with instability that are affecting the Intel Core i9 processors.

Intel Core i9 14900K & Core i9 13900K CPUs Perform badly in Stability Tests, These Proccesors being over-extended at Chiphell user whose name is “kmdkai” kmdkai has been capable of running several hundred Intel Core i9 14900K and also Core i9 13900K CPUs through an array of tests for stability in order to observe how they perform when subjected to “AUTO” profiles being handed out by the makers of the boards.

In the past, it has been revealed that Intel’s Latest 13th and 14th Generation CPUs have been performing poorly when it comes to gaming stability as well as the stability of applications. The reason for this is still to be determined, but it seems that the changes being made by the makers of their boards offer light on the problem. It could have something to do with be related to the BIOS versions which set the chips into their “Extreme” power profiles rather than using the default limits that were set to be determined to be set by Intel itself.

The tester is a studio owner who has a variety of CPUs purchased to meet the needs of its clients. The invoices issued by the testing company revealed that he purchased and tested more than 100 Intel Core 13900K and Core i9-14900K CPUs. It is evident that a majority of the processors that he purchased were, at least in some way, not stable in regards to stability. The Studio’s motherboards are ASUS’s Z790 B760, B760 Z690 and B660.

The program requires every computer and CPU to undergo different tests. When using the Auto profile, which is available on ASUS motherboards, a majority of processors do not pass the tests and need to get sold once more. Based on these results the tester estimated an approximate probability ratio to determine how stable the processor is. It is available in the table below:

  • Intel Core i9-13900K “AUTO -253W” 40/50% (4/5 out of 10, ) Units stable)
  • Intel Core i9-13900K “Reduced Loadline” 50-60 percent (5/6 10 devices are steady)
  • Intel Core i9-13900K “B760/B660 Board” 60%-70 percentage (6/7 of 10. ) devices stable)
  • Intel Core i9-14900K “AUTO – 253W” 20-20 20% (2 in 10 stabilized units)
  • Intel Core i9-14900K “Reduced Loadline” – – 30% (3 /10) ) Units stable)
  • Intel Core i9-14900K “B760/B660 Board” 40 40 percent (4 for 10, ) Units stable)

The experience you get when you first get any of Intel 13th and 14th Gen CPUs is not a good one. According to reports, the processors could be functional for the course of a week or more than a month but they typically cause instability issues.

Additionally the reason that”Z” series motherboards are more unstable than “Z” series motherboard produces more instability than the “B” series motherboard is because an “Z” series motherboard that is “Z” series is designed to be overclocked and tuned and set limits higher as default. However “B” series boards don’t provide the option of overclocking CPUs and can result in limit on power set according to the Intel standard settings.

It’s also worth noting how the efficiency of Intel 13th or 14th Gen CPUs is a bit more efficient due to higher voltages from the factory. CPUs that have lower voltages are seen as shiny and can lead to more instability issues. The problem with used as well as older model is the majority of them aren’t covered under warranty as buyers from Asia (specifically China) are being refused RMA.

Furthermore, a variety of fake Intel Core i9-14900K and Core 13900K i9 processors are making the rounds on Chinese markets, and they’re showing outstanding 200 SP ratings. But, they’re not true die-less processors. Our reliable overclocker, SAFEDISK has been capable of identifying these chips and confirm that they’re not genuine chips.

Furthermore the inclusion of Intel’s “Baseline” profile in recent BIOS updates suggests that it’s feasible to believe that “Z” series boards can be as reliable as “B” series boards. But the lower voltage and power limits result in a major difference in performance.

It is known that the Intel 13th and 14th Gen Core i9 CPUs consume a lot of energy, and the removal of some power shows the devastation that they can perform. It’s believed to be at least 30 percent in multi-threaded applications and up to 15 percent for games that is an enormous amount. Additionally, Intel’s own benchmarks of performance have been performed using”Auto” and “Extreme” profiles, “Extreme” or “Auto” profiles that are not an accurate representation of performance as they can be unstable and can result in an unpleasant experience for PC users.

ZDNet Korea also posted a update from a vendor who is partnering with Intel and states that neither Intel or motherboard makers have identified the cause of the issues with instability that affect Intel’s 13th and 14th Gen CPUs. However, it appears the official announcement will be made on May 15th and we’re hoping we’ll be able to find a dependable solution to this problem (though the chances of it happening are unlikely since motherboard manufacturers will require Intel’s baseline processor profiles” according to the information we’ve received from motherboard makers
