Intel said its four new chip families will be used in 50 different processor variants and power more than 500 new PCs that are set to launch this year.

With the competition getting tougher and tougher with AMD slowly gaining more foothold in the technology sector (especially for computers), Intel ultimately has to step up their game. Based on the 10nm architecture even now, the 11th gen Tiger Lake-H finally brings the higher performance processors to laptops. The range of new processors announced at CES 2021 include the 11th gen Evo vPro range for ultra-slim business laptops, N-series Pentium Silver and Celeron range for the low power consumption devices, 11th gen Tiger Lake-H series for upcoming super-slim gaming and high performance laptops, 11th gen Rocket Lake-S series for desktops, and also a very brief preview of its 12th generation Core processors, under Alder Lake.

Additionally, Intel's 11th-gen CPU has been updated. But, Intel says that these chips are as powerful as last year's 45-watt H-series chips and about 30% faster than AMD's 4800HS chip. In a comparison with the new Intel Core vPro i7-1185G7 and 10th Gen Intel Core vPro i7-10610U, Intel said the newer chip has a 19% better overall performance with applications, 21% faster web browsing, 17% faster performance on Microsoft 365 and 80% faster video editing. Intel has confirmed that the 11th Gen Intel Core S-series desktop processors will be highlighted through the Intel Core i9-11900K as it will be the top-notch processor under the S - series. The company also announced Intel Evo Chromebooks, expanding the range of premium class of Chromebooks. Rather, desktop PCs are to be reinforced in the future and more powerful notebooks with such processors are to come along. Intel says the new chips made for this are able to support up to 5GHz in speed, utilising Intel's graphics in a laptop built to be 1.6cm thick. They will deliver up to 8 cores and features such as Thunderbolt 4, Wi-Fi 6/6E and PCIe Gen 4 to support high-performance dedicated GPUs. This platform is designed for business laptops, offering not just great performance but enhanced security as well. For business platforms, the newly introduced 11th-gen Intel Core vPro boasts Hardware Shield security, 10nm SuperFin tech, an eight-fold increase in artificial intelligence performance, and up to 23% faster productivity with some apps. According to him, the processor is a significant breakthrough in x86 architecture as it combines high performance cores and high efficiency cores into a single product for the first time.

Estonian prime minister Juri Ratas to resign, spokeswoman says
Kallas, whose party won the 2019 election but was outmanoeuvred by Ratas, will need support in parliament for the nomination. They have favoured austerity to keep spending in check, giving the country one of the eurozone's lowest debt-to-GDP ratios.
