Intel CPU Announcements

Intel Announces Four New Processor Families at CES 2021 (thanks Hypothermia). Interestingly, they refer to their new desktop CPUs as targeting business, while the gaming CPUs they tout for gaming are mobile processors. Here's word on their gaming plans:
New Line of 11th Gen Intel® Core™ H-series Mobile Processors for the Best Gaming Platforms
Intel launched a new line of 11th Gen Intel Core H-series mobile processors for gaming that extends the 11th Gen mobile family of products and pushes the limits of what’s possible for enthusiast-level gaming in laptops as thin as 16 millimeters. Led by the Intel® Core™ i7 Special Edition 4-core processor with up to 5 gigahertz (GHz) Turbo, these H35 processors are specifically targeted for ultraportable gaming. They feature new Gen 4 PCIE architecture for connecting to latest discrete graphics and deliver amazingly low latency and immersive game play on the go. At CES, Acer, ASUS, MSI and Vaio announced new systems powered by the 11th Gen Intel Core H35-series processor for ultraportable gaming, with more than 40 designs from top manufacturing partners launching in the first half of 2021.

For mobile enthusiasts who want desktop-caliber gaming and creation performance, Intel also announced an 8-core processor that will start shipping later this quarter. This platform is unique in the industry with features that would normally only be found in high-end desktop systems – including up to 5GHz, 20 lanes of PCIe Gen 4.0 architecture for fastest storage and discrete graphics, and Intel® Killer™ Wi-fi 6E (Gig+).

So I did a new Ryzen 5800X / B550 build in December, and yea it's the best gaming processor and all that and very fast. But I have no doubt Intel will marginally the gaming crown back with a +19% IPC jump if they maintain clock speeds. It's just a shame it took them so long and that power consumption is so absurd with their ancient 14nm+ process. They need a new node extremely badly. The Big/Little design is certainly interesting too.

The only con on AMD right now is pricing. I fully admit I overpaid for the $450 5800X which is only 5% faster in gaming than the i7-10700K which costs only $360. If Intel keeps pricing similar or stays below $400 they'll have an 8 core winner.
