Intel Starts Production of 10nm Xeon Scalable Processors

Intel Rocket Lake-S chipsets to be available in Q1 2021

Touted as a surprise, Bryant revealed that the next generation processor, code named Alder Lake, is coming in the second half of 2021.

Till now, Intel and AMD were the only competitors in the desktop and laptop CPU department.

Notably, the upcoming Rocket Lake-S processors are still 14nm chips.

Additionally, Intel demonstrated "Alder Lake", the next-generation processor that are said to represents a breakthrough in x86 architecture and the company's most power-scalable system-on-chip.

The11th Gen Intel Core H-series mobile processors are the most interesting of the new chips though - they push the limits of what's possible for enthusiast-level gaming in thin and light laptops (down to 16mm thick, says Intel).

At this year's CES, Intel has gone all out by announcing four new processor families that aim to cater to users' different needs.


So, the 35W H-series processors won't be found on the beefiest gaming laptops but will still offer impressive performance.

"Today marks a significant milestone for Intel as we continue to accelerate the delivery of our 10nm products and maintain an intense focus on delivering a predictable cadence of leadership products for our customers", said Navin Shenoy, executive vice president and general manager of the Data Platforms Group at Intel, in a statement.

The new Intel offerings bring support for 3200MHz DDR4 memory (4266MHz for LPDDR4x), Thunderbolt 4 support, a 15% boost in single-thread performance compared to 10th Gen solutions, and a 40% jump in multi-thread performance compared to the 15W 11th Gen Intel mobile processors.

Analyst Patrick Moorhead of Moor Insights & Strategy told SiliconANGLE the new vPro chips are an example of the continued "platformization" of Intel's PC technologies.

The H35 lineup will include PCIe 4.0 for connecting with the latest discrete GPUs, as well as gigabit-plus Wi-Fi 6/6E connectivity and Intel Xe-LP integrated graphics. The company also promised a new combination of high-power cores called Golden Lake and new Gracemont cores for efficiency gains. It comes with added security features like the Intel Hardware Shield which as per the company is the industry's first silicon-based AI threat detection to prevent ransomware and crypto-mining attacks. Third-generation Zion scalable processors Ice Lake-SP, already expected in the fourth quarter and then postponed to 2021, are set to be converted to mass production this quarter.

It's not easy to be a portable PC gamer, for sure, and not friendly on your back, but it might be getting easier this year, thanks to something Intel is talking up at CES 2021.
