In a recent press release statement, Intel has announced the company would be hosting two virtual news conferences at the CES 2021 event, which is going to be delivered via a digital platform, as no audience will be present at any of the conferences.
Last week, even AMD’s CEO, Dr. Lisa Su confirmed that the company will be hosting the virtual CES 2021 keynote on 12th January 2021. Back in July, the Consumer Technology Association already announced that the CES 2021 event will be presented as an all-digital online only experience.
Due to the ongoing global Covid-19 pandemic, most of the public events and tech/gaming expos have been cancelled. As part of the all-virtual CES 2021, Intel will preview exciting new technology via two news conferences plus host an in-depth technology session from Mobileye.

From what we know so far, Intel is prepping to launch its 11th Gen Rocket Lake-S desktop CPU lineup, in the first quarter of 2021, so we can expect the company to give us some update on this upcoming processor series, and/or share more technical details as well.
We also expect the company to tease something on the upcoming Tiger Lake-H high-performance mobile processors, which are going to land up next year in high-end Laptops/Notebooks. Though, it is not clear what else Intel might have in store for the consumer market, since CES mostly focuses on consumer electronics.
Intel’s press announcement mentions that Gregory Bryant, Intel VP and GM of Client Computing Group, will outline how Intel is executing and driving innovation in process technology, packaging and architecture, and also how this is going to affect the consumer and the business market.

“The transformative power of computing to help people do more is clear. Join Gregory Bryant, executive vice president and general manager of Intel’s Client Computing Group, and other Intel executives, as they outline how Intel is executing and driving innovation in process technology, packaging and architecture to deliver that transformative computing experience for consumers and businesses alike.
As we enter the era of distributed intelligence, computing is pervasive, and intelligence is distributed. Put simply: Everything looks like a computer and everything is in the cloud. During this conference, Bryant and team will expand on how Intel is delivering for its customers as the company embraces the incredible growth opportunity this data revolution has created.“
Intel is also planning a news conference focusing on autonomous driving which will be hosted by Amnon Shahua, who is the senior VP of Intel and chief executive officer of Mobileye.

“When it comes to autonomous driving, the time to “go” is now – and Mobileye is going broad and fast. Join Prof. Amnon Shashua, senior vice president of Intel and chief executive officer of Mobileye, as he takes attendees on an intimate tour of his garage lab and connects today’s progress and technology with tomorrow’s vision. He will discuss the unique interplay between advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and the company’s autonomous vehicle technology, and how this connection has shaped Mobileye’s strategy.”
Both of these events will take place on January 11, 2021, and you can watch them live on the Intel Newsroom.
