CES 2021: Intel Announces Four New Processor Families
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 11, 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 today at CES 2021 highlighted how it is driving technology leadership to define the future of computing for people, business and society.
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 security2. 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:
Laptop designs verified on the Intel Evo vPro platform are stylish, thin and light and provide an amazing immersive visual experience. 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.
New Processors and Partnerships for Best Education Platform
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%11 better overall application performance and up to 78% better graphics performance gen on gen.
As critical as advancing technology for meeting students’ evolving needs is putting laptops in their hands. 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 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. 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.
Preview of Next-Generation “Rocket Lake” and “Alder Lake” Technologies for Leadership Desktop and Mobile Platforms
Intel also demonstrated next-generation desktop technology for gamers and enthusiasts coming to market in 11th Gen Intel® CoreTM S-series desktop processors (“Rocket Lake-S”).
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. 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.
