At this week's 2020 International Consumer Electronics Show, Intel, NVIDIA, Qualcomm and AMD announced their latest chip products. In general, these new chips are faster and more energy-efficient than existing products, which means that we will be able to use notebooks with smaller size and longer battery life.
Some of the new chips they announced will meet consumers in the coming months, and some will take a while to meet them.
The following are the new products announced by four chip manufacturers on CES:
The latest sharp dragon thread Ripper processor announced by AMD
On Monday, amd CEO Lisa Su unveiled a new laptop and desktop processor. Unlike some of its peers, suzifeng also disclosed the price of the new processor and when it will be available.
Among the new generation of processors announced by AMD, the most powerful one is the latest sharp dragon thread Ripper, which will be applied to desktops for content creators, financial analysts and other high-end users.
The new generation of thread Ripper chip integrates 64 cores, twice the number of the previous generation products, and is also the most integrated consumer processor chip, with a sales time of February 7 and a price of about 4000 US dollars. The integration of thread Ripper with more cores will enable the PC to quickly complete tasks with high processing capacity, such as video coding or analysis of a large number of data.
Ruilong 4000 mobile processor
In terms of notebook processors, amd announced the sharp dragon 4000 mobile series products, with a clock frequency of up to 4.2 GHz. Amd said the processor is 90% faster than Intel's equivalent ice lake processor when running tasks such as video rendering that require a full kernel. However, it should be noted that this is only AMD's "one word", which has not been confirmed by the third-party evaluation agency.
Under Su's leadership, amd has gained its current dominance, with its share price up 150% in the past year. At the new product launch, suzifeng also said that the performance of some amd chips exceeded that of Intel and NVIDIA.
Due to some new product ticket hopping, Intel is really "south" in 2019. It also suffered from the shortage of some processor chips, which affected its revenue during the Christmas sales season.
Intel show's partner products include Samsung's high-end Galaxy chromebook, one of the thinnest and most powerful chromebooks ever, and Lenovo's folding screen notebook, known as ThinkPad X1 fold, which has a 13 inch display and is about half the size reduced after folding.
Prototype of Intel horseshoe bend folding screen notebook
Intel also showcased its prototype folding screen laptop, called horseshoe bend, which can be expanded to 17 inches. Intel will not be involved in the notebook business, this is just to stimulate PC manufacturers to do more in innovation.
Intel tiger Lake processor for light notebook
On the processor side, Intel announced some news about Tiger Lake processor for light notebook. Compared with Intel's current products, tiger Lake's performance will have a "2-digit" improvement, and it supports thunderbolt 4, a connection standard for hard disks and other peripherals with faster data transfer speed. Intel did not provide more details about Tiger lake, saying it would go public later this year, but did not disclose a more specific time.
Intel DG1 graphics chip
Intel also showcased a notebook running destiny 2 with its own graphics card, code named DG1. However, Intel did not disclose the time or price of DG1's IPO.
Qualcomm announces automatic driving car chip "Xiaolong driving platform"
On this year's CES, Qualcomm focused on automotive chips, especially autopilot chips.
Qualcomm has announced a number of chips called "Xiaolong driving platform", which can complete various autonomous driving tasks. Qualcomm also announced a service called car to cloud, which makes it easier for automakers to upgrade their car's software packages wirelessly.
Qualcomm expects revenue from the automotive business to grow from $600 million last year to $1.5 billion in 2024. Currently, Qualcomm's annual revenue is about $20 billion. Qualcomm is already a leading supplier of in vehicle infotainment system chips.
Ying Wei Da
NVIDIA still relies on the Turing graphics card released at CES last year to earn a lot of money. The graphics card is not the main character of its CES booth this year.
A new product announced by NVIDIA is a 24 inch monitor for PC game players. The display developed by NVIDIA and Asustek is called Rog 360, which uses NVIDIA's g-sync technology to update the screen at 360 times per second - six times the speed of the standard display.
Humanoid robot t-hr3 jointly developed by NVIDIA and Toyota
NVIDIA also showed off a robot developed by Toyota, which configures its chips. The humanoid robot, called t-hr3, can be controlled by a human operator. Operators need to wear virtual reality glasses and connect control devices on their arms and legs.
