03:45PM EST - One of our first events of the annual CES trade show this year is Intel's press conference on its consumer product lines. Heading up the event with be Intel's Gregory Bryant, GM of Intel's Client Computing Group. We're expecting to hear updates about all the things planned for 2021, which is set to be a pivotal year for the company. With Rocket Lake supposedly around the corner, as well as larger versions of Tiger Lake, it will be interesting to hear what Intel is ready to talk about. Come back at 1pm Pacific Time (4pm Eastern, 9pm UTC, 10pm CET) and follow along with the AnandTech Live Blog.

    14nm future?
  • ikjadoon - Monday, January 11, 2021 - link

    Gotta say, watching Intel presentations these days feels like watching Blockbuster's financials circa 2008-2009.

    Not saying it's an accurate analogy, but the cringe / awkwardness is here all the same.
  • lmcd - Monday, January 11, 2021 - link

    Honestly I agree with Intel's approach of highlighting its IGPs across its desktop range. It makes sense for 90% of business desktop computers.

    The problem is, until Rocket Lake, that's a 4 year old IGP lol.
  • lmcd - Monday, January 11, 2021 - link

    Also, it's telling that in a presentation that should be focused on Tiger Lake (H, especially 8 core for laptop) and Rocket Lake, Intel's talking about Alder Lake. I'm just as excited for Alder Lake as anyone if not more than most, but ugh please just fake that you like Rocket Lake a little better!
  • polyzp - Monday, January 11, 2021 - link

    Where is there any indication they compared their desktop rocket lake 11900k vs an 8 core Ryzen system? Its mentioned here that in fact it was an 8 core Ryzen system and not a 12 core? Intels own blog states its a 12 core Ryzen. Any further information would be appreciated!
  • Jorgp2 - Monday, January 11, 2021 - link

    Ian, that Tiger Lake H is a desktop die isn't it?

    It's a shame they still haven't power optimized their H series CPUs even though AMD already has done so.
  • Jorgp2 - Monday, January 11, 2021 - link

    It looks more like the old GT4 configs than a desktop die, but definitely not related to the U series.

    Intel's future: "oh **** what do we do now?!"
