Although only a 30-minute press conference was held at this year’s annual CES trade show, Intel is still discussing its plans for the next 12 months. The company involves five key processor architectures and product segments, which will determine where most of the 2021 fiscal year comes from. This is actually an annual roadmap release without actually providing a roadmap.

Today we have a lot of Intel news, for convenience, we divide them into different news articles.This is a convenient and quick-use guide that can be clicked to perform any of our analysis
A night with Intel CEO Bob Swan: Roundtable Q&A
Intel provided the opportunity to ask the person in charge CEO Bob Swan a question, which surprised us. Intel rarely provides access to its C-level executives to the technical media, so we have to consider some difficult questions and require him to answer. Our time is very short. In the end, we have about 15 minutes for 5/6 of us to ask questions and get answers, but we are very happy to hear the answers related to Intel’s fab strategy and what Intel can do in terms of outsourcing And whether Bob thinks Intel’s technology or financial situation is more important.
Hot media: Ice Lake Xeon is now in production
Many of Intel’s recent challenges stem from its inability to push its 10-nanometer process into the company’s two main revenue-generating areas: desktops and servers. We originally hoped to see Intel’s 10-nanometer Ice Lake Xeon Scalable processor at the end of last year, but it was easy to see. Today, Intel announced that it has started production, although Intel said it has started production earlier this year, and other sources told us that Intel has started the hardware and can it be shipped to customers? All this is very confusing.
The latest version of the desktop: Rocket Lake’s Core i9-11900K
Intel has been teasing the next-generation Rocket Lake desktop processor for months, and the arrow points to PCIe 4.0. We already know the backported CPU and GPU cores. There are big questions about the significance of this on performance and power consumption. Intel completely answered our zero questions, but it did decide to preview some game performance and provide us with specific numbers about the frequency. Many 500 series motherboards have also been introduced.
Laptops are now available: Tiger Lake 35W, Tiger Lake 45W
In terms of notebooks, Intel offers two new product series for OEM partners. The closest to release is the new Tiger Lake H35 series, which is Intel’s regular 15 W processor that can be enhanced to a 35 W power mode and can reach 5.0 GHz operating speed. The traditional 45W H series processor is a bit further away, it has up to eight cores. We all have detailed information on both.
Commercial customers are also important: Intel Tiger Lake gets vPro
In view of the massive growth of notebooks in the business field this year, the demand for business-class notebooks is growing rapidly. These business notebooks require special security features and out-of-band management, so Intel’s vPro series hardware is required. Intel meets this demand by putting the latest 15W Tiger Lake processor into its vPro product line. What we cover includes more detailed information about other functions that come with the hardware, such as CET.
Chromebooks for Education: 10nm Jasper Lake gets a new look
This is the detailed news that we didn’t want to get, but we are glad we did: Intel is updating its Pentium Silver and Celeron processor product lines with 10nm Jasper Lake processors. The exciting announcement is because they use Intel’s latest generation Tremont Atom core, which works slightly differently from x86. We can’t wait to get help, especially when they filter to Windows machines and micro PCs. There are more details inside.
At that time, we briefly mentioned in the pre-conference discussion under the NDA that although Intel’s Alder Lake platform has no specific news in late 2021, CEO Bob Swan did tell us that it will be Intel’s target for desktop and The “most powerful” SoC provided by mobile devices. More details will be available later this year.
Update: Intel demonstrated the system at the CES press conference.
Intel stated that this is an Alder Lake system that can run on Windows. So far, obviously early chips and test boards, but this is a step in the right direction. It has been confirmed that it will be launched in the second half of this year.
