Intel CES 2021 Media Event Live Blog

Hey, we're live from Intel's Event at CES. We expect to hear about Rocket Lake, and possibly get a glimpse into the future beyond that.
21:01 UTC: Intel's Gregory Bryant, Executive VP of the Intel Client Business is explaining how important computing is for the world today.
21:03 UTC: Next generation 10 nanometer Ice Lake Xeons shipping now, "with volume ramping through this quarter". More cores, better performance, AI improvements. You'll hear more on those Xeons in the coming months.
21:04 UTC: More than 50 Intel EVO laptop designs launched. Claims that only Intel and their partners can deliver this variety of designs. More than 150 partners.
21:05 UTC: Stephanie announces new processors for business. Intel vPro "is built for business". Intel claims that vPro is the most secure solution for businesses today.
21:07 UTC: Two laptops compared. Intel and "non-Intel system without the Intel security advantages". The demo shows that bad things can happen when you click on links on the Internet. The Intel system can defend against the control flow attack, the other system cannot.
21:09 UTC: Claims about performance being up to 23% faster than AMD with Office 365. See the footnotes on the slide above.
21:09 UTC: New announcement: Intel vPro Platform, which is 60 certified vPro designs, spanning the whole performance range.
21:11 UTC: Discussion with an IT guy from Accenture, a company who deployed Intel vPro. Talk about remote management, reliability and performance.
21:13 UTC: Next up, Caitlin, who's talking about Intel's role in providing hardware for education. "We estimate that at least 30% of devices purchased are for students".
21:13 UTC: New 10 nanometer Intel Celeron and Pentium Silver processors are launching. This Jasper Lake. Up to 35% faster than previous generation, no further technical details.
21:14 UTC: Two laptop designs showed, Acer and ASUS.
21:15 UTC: This demo compares two education laptops, one with a MediaTek 8183 ARM SOC and the other with Intel Pentium CPU. A video conferencing call is running in the background, while Tinkercad is running in the foreground to render a LEGO scene. The Pentium is much faster, not that big of a surprise considering how slow the MediaTek CPU is. The new Celerons and Pentiums support Windows, Linux, Chrome based devices, coming this year.
21:20 UTC: Gaming! Recap of existing products.
21:21 UTC: Comparison of AMD Ryzen 7 vs Intel. It's really interesting that Intel people never say "Ryzen", just "R7". Importing, editing and then exporting a video runs faster on Intel, even though Intel has just four cores, whereas the AMD system has eight cores. Intel wins because the CPU has AI acceleration to beat the AMD system. "It's clear, the best experience is powered by Intel".
21:22 UTC: 11th gen Intel Core Chromebooks are launching. Possibly based on the same Celerons and Pentiums. Iris Xe graphics, Thunderbolt 4 support for Chromebook. Linux and Windows supported. 2.5x faster multitasking than previous generation.
21:24 UTC: Finally! Intel Core-S Series, looks like they came up with a new branding for these CPUs. IPC gains of upwards of 14% gen-on-gen, thanks to a new architecture. PCIe 4.0, 20 lanes from the CPU. New AI capabilities. Intel worked with hundreds of developers to optimize their engines and games.
21:25 UTC: New ultraportable quad-core H-Series Core i7 laptops for better mobile gaming, clocked at up to 5 GHz. PCI-Express 4.0. Paired with NVIDIA GPU. "At way more than 70 FPS at Full HD". More than 50 designs launching.
21:26 UTC: S-Series CPU performance. 8-core i7 with 16 GB RAM and RTX 3080. Next to it an "identically configured" AMD system with 12-core Ryzen 7 CPU [which does not exist? they mean Ryzen 9]. Showing Metro Exodus. "Our team has created an automated script to mimic a person playing a game".. nope, that's the official integrated benchmark made by the Metro developers. The Intel CPU achieves 156.54 FPS, whereas the Ryzen achieves 147.43 FPS. No word about resolution, settings or memory configuration.
21:27 UTC: Mobile gaming with quad-core H Series CPU. Destiny 2 running at 4K, High settings, "buttery smooth". "we will share the framerates once the GPU launches". The issue here is that this laptop uses an NVIDIA Mobile Ampere GPU, which will be announced later this week at CES, so they can't reveal actual performance numbers yet.
21:28 UTC: 8-core Tiger Lake. H-Series 11th gen processor, up to 5 GHz "across multiple cores", 20 PCIe Gen 4 lanes. "Up to 40 GB/s bandwidth". Later this year.
21:29 UTC: Recap of what was announced at this event. A table with all the specs for these would be nice.
21:30 UTC: Alder Lake, the successor to Rocket Lake, is launching later in the second half of 2021. Combined high-performance and high-efficiency cores in a single CPU. It's Intel's first processor built on improved 10 nm process with faster transistors and improved MIM capacitor. The demo is powered on and running Windows.
And this concludes the live blog and event.

Some technical details for Tiger Lake H:
You can watch the whole video presentation on YouTube below.

Please note that Intel deleted their original video upload, and changed some scenes. For example they now say "Our team is running Metro Exodus's integrated benchmark", and "12-core R9" processor.

So..... Intel, being shady with memory speeds again.... being shady with comparing partial results from old intel results to new when the AMD platform would kick their ass. "Pre-Production, good luck buying one with 16GB Dual channel, dual rank LPDDR 4267Mhz"


"Up to 4x better AI performance with 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-1185G7 (on GPU) vs. AMD Ryzen 7 4800U (on CPU)"

Play GRID with up to 1.82x more FPS with a 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-1185G7 vs. AMD Ryzen 7 4800U. As measured by GRID (1080p Medium with variable rate shading enabled). Intel® Core™ i7-1065G7 processor (ICL-U) with Nvidia MX350 shown on demo.


Play Gears Tactics with up to 1.76x more FPS with a 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-1185G7 vs. AMD Ryzen 7 4800U. As measured by Gears Tactics (1080p Medium with variable rate shading enabled). 30 FPS is commonly understood as minimum threshold for playability. Intel® Core™ i7-1065G7 processor (ICL-U) with Nvidia MX350 shown on demo.

Damn their spin department busy.

Faster Office and video conferencing ? We're really scraping the bottom of the barrel aren't we, I mean I know this is "business oriented" but still, that the best they could come up with ?

Also, did they just compare their Celerons with an ARM SoC using cores from 2016 ?

Lol, who are they kidding I picked up a laptop with a 1165G7 and was grossly disappointed and ended up returning it.

Are the Tremont Atoms shipping now?
Are there hard facts beside the useless marketing blabla?
The EVO was for Marketing-Evolution or what?
The Pentium was old the Goldmont Plus aka GeminiLake refresh, or why wasn´t it battling with a AMD Dali or similar 4Thread Part?
poor intel
it was JasperLake 10nm Pentium what was shown, but intel says it has the old Gen Graphics UHD605 instead of Gen11 GPU, thats kind of idiotic

Fuck U Intel, my B460 will not support Rocket Lake, FUCK U Intel its socket 1200
In February i will build off my b460 trow it in the Garbage then i buy a B550 with R9 3950

Same fucking Socket no compatility, what tha fuck is wrong with that shit Intel :laugh:
Never buy again Intel just be garbage..................

Edit:
Im now so full of hate against this stupid garbage shit Company :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

While the 1165G7 is still a mere quad-core, its still good at what that line-up is meant for (compared to the U or H-series). What was disappointing about it?

Looks like the difference between the 1165G7/1185G7 (max 28W) and the new 11375H (max 35W) is TDP and clocks. It also shows that the TB4 is finally integrated and not on a separate chip.

Faster Office and video conferencing...
Simply an aside: Had a call today from a friend with 'access' telling me that company SVP level execs noted that their earlier "work from home mandate" worked out much better than expected for corporate. I was told that 65% of those earlier relinquished to home duty will not be returning to their 4x4 cubicles. Also a new word was coined "Human Capital" to replace the old fashioned HR badge. The unlucky ones are now notified and called (reclassified) as casual employees. I am sure that video converencing is right now not on the mind of the many.
