Intel Announces Four New Processor Families at CES 2021



In a world where computing is pervasive and intelligence is distributed across every surface – from the cloud to the network to the intelligent edge – Intel highlighted at CES 2021 how it is driving technology leadership to define the future of computing for people, business and society.

To help people navigate through this extraordinary time, Intel introduced new processors for business, education, mobile and gaming computing platforms – all designed to offer the premium PC experiences people deserve, with the most choices and no limits.

For business, Intel introduced the 11th Gen Intel vPro platform, an unrivaled business platform delivering the industry’s highest performance and world’s most comprehensive hardware-based security. The new 11th Gen Intel Core vPro processors unveiled today are based on the world’s best business processor for thin-and-light laptops2 and, when combined with the new Intel Core vPro platform, offer:

Intel Hardware Shield, providing the world’s most comprehensive security deep in hardware for business and the industry’s first silicon-enabled artificial intelligence (AI) threat detection to help stop ransomware and crypto-mining attacks. It is also equipped with Intel Control Flow Enforcement Technology, ground-breaking technology to help shut down an entire class of attacks that long evaded software-only solutions.

Intel 10-nanometer (nm) SuperFin technology, delivering industry-leading performance, Intel® Iris® Xe graphics and the world’s biggest Wi-Fi improvement in 20 years – with integrated Intel Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+) that enables up to six times faster uploads and downloads in the office and nearly three times faster speeds at home versus standard Wi-Fi 55.

Eight times better AI performance, enabling businesses new compute power to keep pace with the fast-changing software ecosystem, and up to 2.3 times faster creation and video editing compared to the previous generation.

Up to 23% faster productivity than the competition when using apps like Office 365 and the best business collaboration experience, enabling more than 50% faster office productivity compared to the competition while on a video conference call.

Intel also launched the Intel® Evo™ vPro® platform, the best laptop experience for business users Laptop designs verified on the Intel Evo vPro platform are stylish, thin and light and provide an amazing immersive visual experience. They also offer remarkable responsiveness, instant wake and real-world battery life. More than 60 new laptops from top manufacturers will be available this year, combining the security and manageability of vPro and the amazing on-the-go experiences of Intel Evo. Additionally, Intel announced Intel Evo Chromebooks, enabling a new class of premium Chromebooks.

New Processors and Partnerships for Best Education Platform

Use of the PC as an essential education tool has accelerated greatly worldwide over the past year. To meet the growing needs of students, Intel introduced new N-series Intel® Pentium Silver and Celeron processors with an unmatched balance of performance, media and collaboration for education systems. The processors are designed on Intel’s 10nm architecture, delivering up to 35% better overall application performance and up to 78% better graphics performance gen on gen. This enables smooth application performance and browsing while multitasking, plus advanced camera and connectivity features for an enriched video conferencing and viewing experience.

As critical as advancing technology for meeting students’ evolving needs is putting laptops in their hands. Even with accelerated adoption, up to 30% of U.S. school children still lack internet or laptops for learning, and the pandemic has only exacerbated those requirements. During the last 15 years, Intel has invested more than $1 billion globally in education, including training for more than 15 million teachers. Last April, Intel launched the Online Learning Initiative and has provided hundreds of thousands of devices, as well as connectivity and resources, to students worldwide. Intel will continue these efforts in 2021 along with partners from inside and outside the technology industry.

New Line of 11th Gen Intel® Core™ H-series Mobile Processors for the Best Gaming Platforms

Intel launched a new line of 11th Gen Intel Core H-series mobile processors for gaming that extends the 11th Gen mobile family of products and pushes the limits of what’s possible for enthusiast-level gaming in laptops as thin as 16 millimeters. Led by the Intel® Core™ i7 Special Edition 4-core processor with up to 5 gigahertz (GHz) Turbo, these H35 processors are specifically targeted for ultraportable gaming. They feature new Gen 4 PCIE architecture for connecting to latest discrete graphics and deliver amazingly low latency and immersive game play on the go. At CES, Acer, ASUS, MSI and Vaio announced new systems powered by the 11th Gen Intel Core H35-series processor for ultraportable gaming, with more than 40 designs from top manufacturing partners launching in the first half of 2021.

For mobile enthusiasts who want desktop-caliber gaming and creation performance, Intel also announced an 8-core processor that will start shipping later this quarter. This platform is unique in the industry with features that would normally only be found in high-end desktop systems – including up to 5GHz, 20 lanes of PCIe Gen 4.0 architecture for fastest storage and discrete graphics, and Intel® Killer™ Wi-fi 6E (Gig+).

Intel also demonstrated next-generation desktop technology for gamers and enthusiasts coming to market in 11th Gen Intel Core™ S-series desktop processors (“Rocket Lake-S”). Featuring 19% gen-over-gen instructions per cycle (IPC) improvement12 for the highest frequency cores and headlined by the Intel Core i9-11900K, these processors will bring even more performance to gamers and PC enthusiasts at launch in the first quarter of 2021.

Additionally, Intel demonstrated “Alder Lake,” the next-generation processor that represents a significant breakthrough in x86 architecture and Intel’s most power-scalable system-on-chip. Due in second half of 2021, Alder Lake will combine high-performance cores and high-efficiency cores into a single product. Alder Lake will also be Intel’s first processor built on a new, enhanced version of 10nm SuperFin and will serve as the foundation for leadership desktop and mobile processors that deliver smarter, faster and more efficient real-world computing.


Intel Brought a Segway Robot to CES 2016



IntelThose of us who have dreamed about having our very own robot probably didn’t imagine that it would roll along like a Segway. Intel has teamed up with Segway to reimagine the Segway in the robotic world.

Nakia spoke with Platform Architect for Intel, Han Heng Jeun, at the Intel Real Sense Technology Section at CES 2016. They talked about the unique personal robot assistant that was on display.

The robot has two main functions. One is that it can transform into an SPV (Special Purpose Vehicle) that you can ride. The robot has a Segway as its base. People can step onto it and ride around. When a person no longer needs the robot to be an SPV, it can be transformed back into robot mode.

The robot uses the Intel RealSense RGB-D camera to enable depth sensing. This helps it to do real time 3D mapping that it will use to navigate a room. It also has a microphone array that allows you to send voice command to the Segway robot from anywhere in the room. It can be programed to understand a command like “follow me”.

The robot has an open SDK on Android platform that developers can use create cool new things that the personal assistant Segway robot can do. They will launch the platform and SDK to makers and developers in the second quarter of 2016.

The new HP Z1 G2 workstation is expected to be available in late January, with prices starting at US$1,999.


All About Haswell: Intel’s 4th Generation Archetecture



Haswell

Intel announced their next generation Core chip architecture in the Haswell chipset at Computex Taipei. This chipset is meant for the mobile device out there. The 22nm technology is the 4th generation of the Intel Core processors and with Enhanced graphics can play videos faster, decode JPeg & Mpeg better, support multiple monitors – some with 2K or 4K support.

Haswell’s API support is based on DX11.1 and supports Open CL 1.2 and Open CL 4.0. Therefore, it will handle 3D Graphics of some of the newest games out there.

However, the biggest news comee from the battery life, power and heat of the Intel Haswell. From a 6 hour video playback to 9 hours – from 4.5 day standby to 10-13. The chipset is not only designed for desktops, but also mobile devices such as Ultrabooks and Surface tablet.

One CPU core used just six watts of power during regular tasks. This makes the Haswell chipset able to cooler, quieter and fanless – something that tablets need to be. This could make an i7 Surface tablet possible for people like myself who produce video and tax a computer quite often.

Haswell will come in 5 versions: H (dubbed iris Pro), M (20chip models), U (for Ultrabooks) and Y (for detachable products). Haswell will start at $197 for Core i5 to $368 for Core i7 4770K.
