products at CES with more following throughout the year.”
Introducing 11th Gen Intel® Core™ vPro®: The Best Platform for Business

For business, Intel introduced the 11th Gen Intel vPro platform, an unrivaled business
platform delivering the industry’s highest performance and world’s most comprehensive
hardware-based security2
. The new 11th Gen Intel Core vPro processors unveiled today
are based on the world’s best business processor for thin-and-light laptops2 and, when
combined with the new Intel Core vPro platform, offer:
• Intel® Hardware Shield, providing the world’s most comprehensive security
deep in hardware for business3 and the industry’s first silicon-enabled artificial
intelligence (AI) threat detection to help stop ransomware and crypto-mining
attacks. It is also equipped with Intel® Control Flow Enforcement
Technology, ground-breaking technology to help shut down an entire class of
attacks that long evaded software-only solutions4
.
• Intel 10-nanometer (nm) SuperFin technology, delivering industry-leading
performance, Intel® Iris® Xe
graphics and the world’s biggest Wi-Fi
improvement in 20 years – with integrated Intel® Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+) that
enables up to six times faster uploads and downloads in the office and nearly
three times faster speeds at home versus standard Wi-Fi 55
.
• Eight times6 better AI performance, enabling businesses new compute power
to keep pace with the fast-changing software ecosystem, and up to 2.3 times
faster7 creation and video editing compared to the previous generation.
• Up to 23% faster productivity8
than the competition when using apps like
Office 365 and the best business collaboration experience, enabling more than
50% faster9 office productivity compared to the competition while on a video
conference call.
Intel also launched the Intel® Evo™ vPro® platform, the best laptop experience for
business users10. Laptop designs are verified on the Intel Evo vPro platform are stylish,
thin and light and provide an amazing immersive visual experience. They also offer
remarkable responsiveness, instant wake and real-world battery life. More than 60 new
laptops from top manufacturers will be available this year, combining the security and
manageability of vPro and the amazing on-the-go experiences of Intel Evo. Additionally,
Intel announced Intel Evo Chromebooks, enabling a new class of premium
Chromebooks.
New Processors and Partnerships for Best Education Platform
Use of the PC as an essential education tool has accelerated greatly worldwide over the
past year. To meet the growing needs of students, Intel introduced new N-series Intel®
Pentium® Silver and Celeron® processors with an unmatched balance of performance,
media and collaboration for education systems. The processors are designed on Intel’s
10nm architecture, delivering up to 35%11 better overall application performance and up
to 78% better graphics performance gen on gen. This enables smooth application
performance and browsing while multitasking, plus advanced camera and connectivity
features for an enriched video conferencing and viewing experience.

As critical as advancing technology for meeting students’ evolving needs is putting
laptops in their hands. Even with accelerated adoption, up to 30% of U.S. school children
still lack internet or laptops for learning, and the pandemic has only exacerbated those
requirements. During the last 15 years, Intel has invested more than $1 billion globally in
education, including training for more than 15 million teachers. Last April, Intel launched
the Online Learning Initiative and has provided hundreds of thousands of devices, as well
as connectivity and resources, to students worldwide. Intel will continue these efforts in
2021 along with partners from inside and outside the technology industry.
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, Gen 4 PCIE x20 architecture for
fastest storage and discrete graphics, and Intel® Killer™ Wi-fi 6E (Gig+).
Preview of Next-Generation “Rocket Lake” and “Alder Lake” Technologies for
Leadership Desktop and Mobile Platforms
Intel also demonstrated next-generation desktop technology for gamers and enthusiasts
coming to market in 11th Gen Intel® Core™ S-series desktop processors (“Rocket LakeS”). Featuring 19% gen-over-gen instructions per cycle (IPC) improvement12
for the
highest frequency cores and headlined by the Intel Core i9-11900K, these processors will
bring even more performance to gamers and PC enthusiasts at launch in the first quarter
of 2021.
Additionally, Intel demonstrated “Alder Lake,” the next-generation processor that
represents a significant breakthrough in x86 architecture and Intel’s most power-scalable
system-on-chip. Due in second half of 2021, Alder Lake will combine high-performance
cores and high-efficiency cores into a single product. Alder Lake will also be Intel’s first
processor built on a new, enhanced version of 10nm SuperFin and will serve as the
foundation for leadership desktop and mobile processors that deliver smarter, faster and
more efficient real-world computing.
