What to Expect from the Intel Computex 2021 Announcements
The company was really excited about what to expect. In its press release, Intel announced that it would reveal key insights and strategies from new CEO Pat Gelsinger.
"Join Michelle Johnston Holthaus, Executive Vice President of Intel, at Intel's first COMPUTEX virtual keynote and see firsthand how new CEO Pat Gelsinger's strategies are combined with the forces of a rapidly accelerating digital transformation Intel usher in a new era of innovation. exactly when the world needs it most, ”wrote Intel in its media consultancy. "Johnston Holthaus will welcome Steve Long of Intel, corporate vice president of customer sales for the Client Computing Group, and Lisa Spelman, corporate vice president and general manager of the Xeon and Memory Group, to share how Intel innovations are helping human beings Expand potential by expanding technology potential. "
The company announced that it will showcase news from its work in the data center, cloud, connectivity, artificial intelligence and smart space.
Given that Intel recently launched its new Tiger Lake H-series processors and is working hard on the 12th generation Alder Lake platform after previewing its silicon of the next at CES earlier this year Generation has unveiled, we can probably expect updates on both fronts. In particular, performance improvements due to Intel's heterogeneous processor architecture. Intel's keynote presentation is only scheduled for 30 minutes. We assume that it will be full of news. Alder Lake is expected to launch later this year. We are therefore not assuming that Computex will bring new systems with the 12th generation processor onto the market. The company could also talk about its latest graphics strategy as it pushes its Xe graphics architecture and advances in new discrete graphics cards.
In addition to its opening speech, Intel announced a second presentation at Computex, which will take place on June 2nd at 10 a.m. local time. PT on June 1st for the US audience.
