One of the most popular tech events CES 2021 has started online yesterday, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As usual, the tech giants are launching their leadership products at CES. Also, there are several showcases of companies including manufacturers, developers, and suppliers of consumer technology hardware, content, technology delivery systems, and more. Intel was one of these tech giants.
As a strategic part of its data center strategy
On the first day at CES 2021, Intel highlighted how it is driving technology leadership with the introduction of more than 50 processors, resulting in more than 500 new designs for laptops and desktops coming to market in 2021.
The company announced a server chip built with its best production technique will be available in large volumes in the first quarter. The third generation of Xeon Scalable processors, codenamed Ice Lake, is undergoing a “volume ramp” on Intel’s 10-nanometer production.
Navin Shenoy, executive vice president and general manager of the Data Platforms Group at Intel, said,
“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. Our 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable platform represents a strategic part of our data center strategy and one that we’ve created alongside some of our biggest customers to enable the data center of tomorrow.”
According to the announcement, the 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors help deliver the computing power customers need to thrive in this new, complex world thanks to significant increases in core count, performance, integrated artificial intelligence (AI), and security.
CES 2021 has tech solutions for COVID, including smart masks, touchless doorbells, and more. CES 2021 will end on January 14, 2021.
