As we all know, Intel likes to squeeze toothpaste, which is well known among installation enthusiasts. Since the launch of the first-generation 14nm processor in 2014, Intel has always been obsessed with its goodness, and has been criticized and overtaken by its competitors.
However, at this year’s CES 2021, Intel finally made up its mind and squeezed the toothpaste tube in its hand, which stunned fans and brought new expectations to users.
At CES 2021, which just ended a few days ago, many interesting and useful new technologies and new products were displayed. About these, Xiao Hei will give you a review later.
However, the big news that had to be mentioned at this Consumer Electronics Show was the new processors and next-generation processors released by Intel. Who are they? How strong are they? Let’s take a look at the parameters first.
How to evaluate Intel’s new layout for the new four major processor families?
In Xiao Hei’s impression, Intel has not made such a big news for a long time, but at the beginning of 2021, the good news brought by Intel has also given new hope to users who want to replace their computers.
At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, Intel launched four new processor families from entry to high-end, including 27 commercial processors, 6 processors for education, 12 high-end mobile processors and 8 high-end processors. Desktop processors, Xiaohei broke his fingers, and Intel actually released 53 processors of different levels in one day!
In the commercial sector, Intel launched the 11th generation Intel vPro platform, designed for thin and light notebooks. When combined with this generation of Intel vPro processors, users can also get the security protection brought by Intel Hardware Shield artificial intelligence threat detection technology, and in terms of performance, it also has 8 times the AI performance and 2.3 times the processor performance.
In the field of education, the new Intel Pentium Silver and Celeron processors can bring education users a balance of performance in all aspects. According to Intel’s official introduction, these two processor series will have a 35% increase in overall performance compared to the previous generation, and a 78% increase in graphics performance.
For high-end gamers, high-end mobile processors featuring Intel Core i7 Special Edition quad-core processors with a turbo frequency of up to 5 GHz, as well as the 11th-generation Intel Core S-series processors that will come out later this year, can satisfy their full range of needs.
So far, Intel’s four major processor families have completely eaten the entire PC usage scenarios: from basic business office, to mid-end educational scenarios, to enthusiastic gamers, they are divided into categories and arranged neatly, and users can also customize according to their own needs. needs to be seated.
Finally stepping into 10nm, what kind of performance will Intel have?
While releasing a huge number of processors, Intel also showed off the next-generation processor “Alder Lake”, which is Intel’s most focused product.
According to Intel, this generation of processors represents a major breakthrough in the x86 architecture and will be Intel’s most scalable system-ON-chip for performance.
In terms of process technology, Alder Lake has not disappointed people: 14nm, which has been drained by Intel, will finally become history, and the first Intel processor based on enhanced 10nm SuperFin technology is here!
According to existing news, Alder Lake may use the same size and core design as Apple’s M1 processor, which will take into account power consumption and performance.
In addition, there is good news for those who want to change their phones this year: According to Intel Vice President Chris Walker, Intel will launch more 10nm process processors in 2021, and another 10nm process processor. Production capacity will also soon exceed 14nm. This means that not only do we have more high-performance processors to choose from, we don’t have to worry about buying them.
However, while the tantalizing product of Alder Lake is already in front of us, we won’t get it until the second half of this year, so you can hurry up and save some money during this time.
In fact, there is no need to say AMD yes here. After all, from the perspective of the timeline, it is indeed AMD’s performance explosion that led to the next success of Shuangying (NVIDIA and Intel).
This is also the virtuous circle brought about by orderly competition in the industry: as a double spoiler of CPU and graphics card, the existence of AMD makes it impossible for Nvidia and Intel to squeeze toothpaste too much, and it is natural that ordinary consumers will ultimately benefit.
