Due to the global pandemic, this year’s annual Computex event in Taiwan is being held virtually, but all the big-name companies have keynotes to present their latest news and wares. Intel is no different, and this year the hot ticket items stem from an expansion or ‘refresh’ of their Tiger Lake-U series processors (as we exclusively confirmed at AnandTech in April) but also the first fruits of an Intel 5G solution developed through the partnership with MediaTek.

Computex 2021: Intel’s Keynote, a Live Blog (10pm ET)

This year is a busy one for Intel. A new CEO at the start of the year, a commitment to 7nm, and then the launch of new desktop Rocket Lake processors followed by Tiger Lake-H processors. There are promises of next-generation Alder Lake later in the year, and we’re all interested to see what happens with Intel’s desktop graphics strategy. Heading up today’s Computex keynote is not the usual CEO spot, but Michelle Johnston Holthaus, Intel’s EVP and Chief Revenue Officer.

We’ll be starting the live blog promptly at 10pm ET, or 10am Taipei time.
