How to watch Intel’s big Computex 2024 keynote tonight

Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger delivers the Day 1 closing keynote at IAA Mobility

Intel is the next big name that will be talking up its upcoming products and technologies at Computex, with a big keynote address from CEO Pat Gelsinger scheduled for tonight. While we won’t be talking about his jacket like with the Nvidia CEO’s, we may well hear about the CPUs that are going up against AMD’s Zen 5 later this year.

Alongside new chip announcements, AI will certainly be a major component of the announcement, as it has been with just about everyone else’s so far.

Intel will hold its keynote at 11 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT on June 3 (that’s 11 a.m. local time on June 4 for anyone in attendance in Taiwan). If you want to watch it live, Intel has a livestream planned for its own website where you can register your interest and watch along at home.

You’ll also be able to watch it on the official Computex YouTube channel as a replay after the event, which we will embed here if you don’t catch it live.

What we expect from Intel’s keynote at Computex 2024

Computex has already given us a number of exciting announcements from Nvidia and AMD, with the latter showcasing its next-generation Zen 5 CPU design that it plans to launch by the end of July. Although Intel isn’t expected to announce an impending release of its next-generation chip designs, it will no doubt have some large announcements and details on its upcoming CPUs: Arrow Lake and Lunar Lake.

Intel will also talk about its enterprise data center solutions, and about “Bringing AI Everywhere,” most likely as part of the new range of Copilot+ PCs that Microsoft has been heavily pushing.

Alongside CPU news, though, we are also hoping to hear more about Intel’s efforts on the graphics front. While we aren’t likely to see functioning graphics cards, Intel’s next-gen Battlemage designs could be discussed in greater detail than before. Considering there’s talk that they could be as much as 50% faster than their predecessors, we could hear about some major GPU news from Intel at Computex 2024.

Can Intel capture some of the heat and mindshare following AMD’s big debut? Can Intel holdfast against the big advances by Qualcomm in recent months? We only have a few hours to wait to find out.

Intel goes to war with Nvidia and Qualcomm
An AI recreation of Intel's co-founder, Gordon Moore.

"Whatever has been done can be outdone, and in ways we haven't imagined yet." Those were the words that Intel chose to open its Computex 2024 keynote with, and those words were spoken by the AI version of its co-founder, Gordon Moore.

Intel stands by the words of its co-founder, though, while some big names in the tech space disagree -- such as Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang. Huang has been pretty vocal about his belief that Moore's Law is no longer practical, going as far as to say that "Moore's Law is dead" in 2022. Now, not for the first time, Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger fired back with another take on the matter.

Intel had one surprising card up its sleeve at Computex 2024
intel had one card up its sleeve at computex lunar lake chips

We're in an unprecedented moment right now in the world of laptops, and Intel is trying its best to not get lost in the shuffle.

At its keynote at Computex 2024, Intel announced a preview of its upcoming Lunar Lake chips. They're coming early in the cycle -- at least a few months ahead of when they normally would have. But Intel doesn't have a choice. Its hand has been forced by Microsoft, Qualcomm, and AMD -- and it wasn't about to be left in the dust.

MSI’s sequel to the Claw handheld is a major redesign, and I saw it in the flesh

I was critical of the MSI Claw when I reviewed it, and I wasn't alone. MSI's push into the world of handheld gaming PCs wasn't graceful, with lacking performance, subpar battery life, and plenty of software quirks marring the experience. With all the backlash against the device, it would have been easy for MSI to throw in the towel. Instead, the company's doing the opposite. Just six months after the original Claw was shown to the world, MSI is already working on its next version of the Claw and is looking to right its wrongs. I got a look at it at Computex 2024.

Considering it's just the second generation, it might shock you to find out that this isn't just a refresh of the original Claw. The Claw 8 AI+, as it's called, is a complete hardware redesign that includes one of Intel's new Lunar Lake CPUs. I was invited out to the company's headquarters in Taipei, Taiwan, to get an early look at the new device and talk through what it might be capable of.
