Intel's 11th Gen Core vPro platform

Intel's EVP Gregory Bryant unveiled an array of new processors and technologies targeting virtually every market, from affordable Chromebooks to enthusiast class gaming laptops and high-end desktops.

Intel's 11th Gen Core vPro platform was announced, featuring new Intel Hardware Shield AI-enabled threat ransomware and crypto-mining malware detection technology.

In addition, the Intel Rocket Lake-S based Core i9-11900K 8-core CPU was on show which Intel says offers up to a 19 percent improvement in IPC performance and the ability to out-pace AMD's Ryzen 9 5900X 12-core CPU in some workloads like gaming.

Chipzilla announced its new high-end hybrid processor, code-named. Alder Lake has high-performance cores and high-efficiency cores on a single product, for what Intel calls its "most power-scalable system-on-chip" ever.

Alder Lake will also be manufactured using an enhanced version of 10nm SuperFin technology with improved power and thermal characteristics, and targets both desktop and mobile form factors when they arrive later this year.

Finally, Intel launched its new 11th Gen Core H-Series Tiger Lake H35 parts that will appear in high-performance laptops as thin as 16mm. At the top of the 11th Gen H-Series stack is the Intel Core i7-11375H Special Edition, a 35W quad-core processor (8-threads) that turbos up to 5GHz and supports PCI Express 4.0, and is targeted for ultraportable gaming notebooks. Intel is claiming single-threaded performance improvements in the neighbourhood of 15 percent over previous-gen architectures and a greater than 40 percent improvement in multi-threaded workloads.

Intel's Bryant also announced an 8-core mobile processor variant leveraging the same architecture as the 11th Gen H-Series that is slated to start shipping a bit later this quarter at 5GHz on multiple cores, with 20 lanes of PCIe Gen 4 connectivity.
