Intel's CES 2021 conference was rather busy as the company unveiled and teased a slew of new platforms and products.

Not a lot is known of when these new processors will be coming to new laptops, PCs and smartphones but Intel sure has people excited about its new portfolio. Let's take a look at what new does this generation of chips has to offer.

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). They offer: Intel Hardware Shield, providing security in hardware for business and the industry's first silicon-enabled artificial intelligence (AI) threat detection to help prevent ransomware and crypto-mining attacks. However, the firm has promised that the overall performance of these new chipsets will be much faster.

The education sector, meanwhile, has been introduced to the new N-series Intel Pentium Silver and Celeron processors promising a balance between collaboration, performance, and media. The measure has been expected for some time, but may reach a greater magnitude than expected.

Intel has introduced its four new lines of processors designed for a variety of platforms and users, including for education, gaming, and business. The company has managed to maintain relevance thanks to the Tiger Lake chips and promises to recover with the new Rocket Lake and its Cypress Cove cores, but it appears that the company has even more ambitious plans. They feature new Gen 4 PCIE architecture for connecting to latest graphics and claim to deliver low latency and immersive game play on the go.

Intel today expanded the 11th-Gen lineup with the launch of H-series mobile CPUs to power gaming machines in 2021.

Intel additionally demoed the Rocket Lake and Alder Lake processors. Alder Lake utilizes high-performance cores alongside high-efficiency ones. However, Intel wants this platform to be the foundation of future desktop and notebook processors instead of focusing on mobile platforms.

The Santa Clara, Calif. -based company made the disclosure during its virtual CES 2021 keynote and said production of the processors - the first to use the chipmaker's 10-nanometer process - are slated to ramp up over the course of the first quarter.

The flagship processor of the new lineup is the Core i9-11900K, which brings up to 19 percent higher instructions per cycle (IPS) and up to 50 percent better integrated graphics. These chips, codenamed Alder Lake, represent the first major design advance in Intel consumer CPUs since the launch of the Core i7-6700K (codename Skylake) way back in 2015.
