As we all know 2020 has been a rollercoaster for everyone including businesses, even the giant tech companies have faced several issues during this global pandemic that is Covid-19.
In 2020, Intel got a lot of negative attention, it happened mostly because of the latest the most stunning releases of tech devices by its competitors. Intelâ€™s releases were great in 2020, but the actual problem came from the launch of AMD and Appleâ€™s outshining Team Blueâ€™s hardware.
Although, Intelâ€™s Core i3 had HyperThreading this feature meant that Intel users will enjoy great multi-threaded performance. However, it was not enough when AMD Ryzen 5000 series were launched.
As we know, Intelâ€™s latest mobile chips are brilliantly developed to provide excellent battery life, provided the fact that a lot of mobile applications are used by users at the same time. In November 2020, Intelâ€™s mobile progress was reduced slightly when itâ€™s major competitor and tech giant – Apple announced MacBook Air, Mac mini and 13-inch MacBook Pro which directly impacted the progress of intelâ€™s silicon for processors that were designed in-house at Apple.
Few of the releases in 2020 might stay the same in 2021, for instance Intel Xe. It did allow consumers to use graphics themselves, however it still do not provide enough graphics to run an application or game such as, Cyberpunk 2077.
Considering the rapid change in technology and intelâ€™s competitors are launching new products quickly with stunning new features, Intel users are looking forward to Intel graphics cards, but it feels like we have been waiting for this our entire life. I guess, weâ€™ll have to wait and see if their concepts will translate into an actual product or not in 2021.
Apart from desktop applications that are often used by all consumers and are working quite well on Intelâ€™s devices, their mobile side is also still competitive. Intel will face a hard time to stay competitive especially due to the heavy competition coming from both AMD and ARM.
