AMD’s CES 2022 press conference takes place at 8 am PST on January 4. The focus will be on the company’s new Rembrandt CPU/APU line set to appear in the next generation of thin and powerful laptops. Both the Ryzen 6000H and Ryzen 6000U chips are expected to be revealed, with the former rumored to be based on the 6nm process node and feature Zen3+ technology, RDNA 2 graphics, a TDP of 35-45W, and a maximum of 8 cores/16 threads.

AMD also said it will unveil its upcoming graphics solutions, which could refer to lower-tier cards such as the Radeon RX 6500 XT or perhaps a refresh of some Radeon 6000 products. Don’t be surprised to hear more about Zen 3D V-Cache Vermeer-X CPUs, too.

Intel’s keynote takes place after AMD’s at 10 am PST. Like team red, we are expecting plenty of news about Intel's new laptop CPUs—Alder Lake-P and Alder Lake-M—as well as information on the non-K Alder Lake-S desktop chips and some 600-series chipsets. But most of the time could be spent talking about the Arc Alchemist GPUs.

Ahead of their press conferences at this year’s truncated and part-virtual CES, AMD and Intel are teasing big CPU announcements for the show. AMD’s “product premiere” is due to take place at 10am ET today, while Intel has a “digital-first live experience” scheduled for slightly later at 1pm ET.

Intel’s CES tease is focused on one key spec, 5.5GHz, which is expected to be the maximum boost clock speed its upcoming CPU will be able to reach. That’s a 300MHz improvement over the company’s current flagship, the Core i9-12900K, which was announced late last year and can reach a top boost clock speed of 5.2GHz. VideoCardz reports that the new processor could be called the Core i9-12900KS, and may release in late Q1 2022.
The rest, AMD & Intel are tweeted about their new CPUs:

After teasing the news earlier this week, Intel has officially announced a new 12th-gen desktop CPU that’s capable of boosting to 5.5GHz on a single core out of the box. The news came during Intel’s CES 2022 presentation, when it said the KS-series desktop processor would be shipping later this quarter, but there was no mention of pricing.

The full name of the chip is the Core i9-12900KS, and Tom’s Hardware notes the “S’’ suffix suggests it’ll be a limited edition. As well as hitting a maximum of 5.5GHz on a single core (a 300MHz improvement over what we saw with the i9-12900K), an onstage demonstration of the new CPU powering Hitman 3 showed the processor running at a sustained 5.2GHz across all its performance cores. No details were given on what sort of power draw or cooling solution was needed to achieve these results.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t sound like you’ll be able to buy Intel’s 5.5GHz CPU for your own rig anytime soon. Intel executive vice president Gregory Bryant noted only that the CPU would be shipping to “OEM customers” during the presentation suggesting that, in the immediate future, you’ll have to buy a prebuilt PC to get your hands on one of the chips. As well as this new top-of-the-line CPU, Intel also used its CES presentation to announce a range of new mainstream desktop and laptop 12th Gen CPUs.
