 Introduction

Intel’s new Arrow Lake Core Ultra 9 285K processor for PCs promises lower power and heat consumption at the cost of a lower top speed, staying at 5.5 GHz.

Intel and AMD have been pitting each other against each other for years to see which of the two can release the best processors for PCs, laptops, and servers. For a long time, Intel has dominated its rival and has been able to afford to release processors with minimal improvements, as it didn’t need anything else to stay ahead. However, ever since AMD launched Zen-architecture CPUs, Intel has had to get its act together.

The Reign of Intel vs. AMD: A Historic Rivalry

With each new generation of processors, Intel has been increasing the number of cores and/or frequencies. Currently, its latest and most powerful processor is the i9-14900KS. It has 24 cores and reaches a maximum frequency of 6.2 GHz.

With this in mind, there are currently many voices claiming that the next-generation Intel Core Ultra 9 285K “Arrow Lake” CPU has a maximum frequency of 5.5 GHz, 0.7 GHz below, according to information from MebiuW and Golden Pig Upgrade.

Be careful, though, because it may seem like negative news, and it really wouldn’t be quite like that. Raising the frequencies so much causes an inevitable increase in voltage, which in turn increases consumption and temperatures. Intel could be redirecting this aspect by lowering the GHz so that the user, taking into account the expected changes in the processor, would hardly notice.

Speed isn’t everything on a CPU, and Intel could be playing its cards very well

Intel may have prioritized power efficiency in this new generation, sacrificing a bit of top speed to reduce the power and heat generated by the processor. In addition, the Arrow Lake architecture on which the Core Ultra 9 285K is based could have a different approach to clock frequencies, such as improving performance in specific tasks or increasing battery life in laptops.

Rumors are just that: rumors, and until Intel officially confirms the information, you have to take it with a grain of salt. On the other hand, watch out for the price because, with such high performance, hopefully it won’t be cheap.

Finally, AMD is also preparing its next generation of processors, so you will have to compare the two before making a decision on who gets the win. Although some data is already being revealed, for the moment we have to wait until COMPUTEX 24 to know all the official specifications and prices.
