How to watch Intel’s CES 2022 keynote today, and what to expect

Intel’s CES 2022 keynote is among one of the most anticipated presentations that will take place at the upcoming technology event. The company is expected to reveal an expansion to its Alder Lake processors, particularly the mobile series for laptops, in addition to fully unveiling its Arc Alchemist graphics cards.

Here’s where you can watch Intel’s CES 2022 keynote and what to expect from the press conference.

How to watch Intel’s CES 2022 keynote today

Intel’s CES 2022 keynote will take place today at the show, with the livestream scheduled to start at 10 a.m. PT (1 p.m. ET).

You’ll be able to watch the livestream on Intel’s website, and we’ll embed the video in this post when available.

Intel hasn’t detailed exactly what will be shown at the event, but confirmed “new developments” in its personal computing business will be shown. Gregory Bryant, executive vice president and general manager of Intel’s Client Computing Group, will be delivering the presentation.

Thanks to various leaks, we can expect Intel to introduce the mobile lineup of its Alder Lake processors. Intel began shipping Alder Lake-P silicon to laptop manufacturers in November 2021. Similar to the Alder Lake-S desktop processors, Alder Lake’s mobile chips are said to utilize a hybrid architecture.

Lower-end models will reportedly sport two Golden Cove performance (P) cores, alongside eight Gracemont efficiency (E) cores. Higher-end variants, meanwhile, are said to be powered by six P-cores and eight E-cores, with the top Alder Lake-P chip apparently offering 14 cores and 20 threads.

Due to several benchmarks, we already have an idea of how Alder Lake mobile chips will perform. For example, the Core i7-12700H could outperform AMD’s flagship processor by 35%. It’s also 45% faster in multi-core operations than its predecessor, the Core i7-11700H. Another benchmark showcased how an Alder Lake-P chip could be almost 50% faster than Apple’s M1 Max processor.

Elsewhere, following the launch of numerous variants of Intel’s desktop Alder Lake chip in October, non-K versions should also be introduced at the keynote.

Intel is also expected to detail its Arc Alchemist GPUs. The desktop graphics cards have reportedly been delayed until March, but the company mentions Arc on its CES 2022 page. With the current GPU shortage expected to last until 2023, Arc Alchemist could finally offer gamers a sub-$200 card.

According to the latest Steam Hardware and Software Survey, more PC gamers are switching to using Windows 11. Although Windows 10 continues to top the charts, it's slowly losing users to Microsoft's newer operating system, as Windows 11 now compromises over a third of all operating systems in Steam's monthly survey.

It's happy news for Microsoft as Windows 11 continues to inch forward in the Steam Hardware Survey. While the survey doesn't include the software and hardware utilized by each and every gamer on the platform, it still shows us some significant averages. Microsoft has continued to push Windows 11 for new PCs, and the latest survey from Steam suggests that the effort is working.

This AMD GPU from 2021 beats the RX 7900 XTX and the RTX 4080
The AMD Radeon Pro W6800X Duo graphics card.

An AMD graphics card that launched in 2021 managed to beat both Nvidia's RTX 4080 and AMD's own flagship, the RX 7900 XTX. Surely that would make it one of the best GPUs you could buy right now -- unfortunately, it's much too pricey to be considered worthwhile, and you can't even use it in a regular PC.

The crazy GPU in question is the AMD Radeon Pro W6800X Duo. Thanks to tests performed by a hardware expert, we were able to see it run far outside of its usual environment. Here's how it fared.

Stable Diffusion is arguably the most popular AI art-generation tool available. It's fast, intuitive, and produces pretty impressive results. If you're interested in using Stable Diffusion yourself, though, you should check if your PC is up to spec first, because it can be quite demanding. That goes for anyone trying to use Stable Diffusion on Mac, too.

But Stable Diffusion's system requirements aren't as straightforward as games or applications, because there are a few different versions available.
