Finally, the new 14th generation Intel Core processors for desktop computers do not support Thunderbolt 5 – Intel

Intel has corrected itself regarding its new Raptor Lake Refresh line of desktop processors, clarifying that the new 14th generation chips will not support Thunderbolt 5 at all.

When the Raptor Lake Refresh CPU line was released, Intel’s announcement said among other things that the 14th generation processors “include support for… the upcoming Thunderbolt 5 wired connectivity.”

Now the company has initiated the relevant correction, he noted Tom’s devices , with Intel clarifying that the above claim was false. Intel notes: “While some processors in the Intel Core 14th Gen processor family will include support for the Thunderbolt 5 standard, Intel Core 14th Gen desktop processors specifically will not.”

However, Thunderbolt 5 connectivity isn’t the biggest issue surrounding Intel’s new Raptor Lake Refresh processor, with all the attention (as always) focused on how fast it is compared to the previous generation, how much power it needs and how much it costs. . However, it’s too bad for Intel to miss an important technical feature of its new processors at launch.

However, we now know that desktop processors will not receive Thunderbolt 5, which may make many wonder which processors of this generation will have such support. Most likely, Intel is referring to the other chipset family that will be released in December and will be available alongside the Raptor Lake Refresh, which is the Meteor Lake series.

Meteor Lake are processors for laptops, which makes sense since for this class of computers, Thunderbolt ports are more common than for a desktop system.

It’s also worth noting that it hasn’t been that long since the Thunderbolt 5 standard was officially announced, and the first devices that support it won’t be released until 2024. So there’s still a long way to go before it reaches consumers’ hands if it’s very important based on the improvements it brings. For speed.
