Computex 2021, Beast Canyon and Intel's 5G solutions arrive

Computex 2021

In addition to unveiling two new U-series Tiger Lake chips, Intel, at Computex 2021, also announced its Beast Canyon NUC equipped with 65W Tiger Lake H-series processors, the first of its kind to support full-length graphics cards. . The NUC Beast Canyon has a capacity of eight liters, which is more than the NUCs the company from Santa Clara has accustomed us to in the past and is adorned with a skull logo. Intel Chief Performance Strategist Ryan Shrout revealed that the system will be equipped with an internal power supply and, given the size of the unit, this means there will likely be restrictions on the power drawn by the GPU. We also know that the mini PC uses standard air cooling.

Intel is definitely finding many new uses for its Tiger Lake architecture. The company recently included new Tiger Lake desktop chips, including the 65W Core i9-11900KB and Core i7-11700KB, in the ARK database, saying the CPUs would debut in systems with a smaller form factor. Given that Intel specifically lists H-series processors for Beast Canyon, it doesn't look like these processors will arrive in the latest NUC.

Intel sold its modem business to Apple in 2019, leaving a gap in the Always Connected PC (ACPC) initiative. Meanwhile, the company has partnered with MediaTek to design and certify new 5G modems with operators around the world. The M.2 modules are finally produced by Fibocom. The resulting Intel 5G 5000 solution is a 5G M.2 device that delivers up to five times the speed of the company's previous Gigabit LTE solutions and is compatible with both Tiger and Alder Lake platforms.

Intel claims to be a leader in the ACPC space with three out of four ACPCs shipped with LTE (over five million units so far). Intel's 5G 5000 solution will be used in six different models from three manufacturers (Acer, ASUS and HP) that will hit the market in 2021, a number set to rise to thirty next year.

Intel unveiled a slate of new products during the company's keynote at Computex. 

Intel debuted two new 11th Gen Intel Core mobile U-series processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics -- i7-1195G7 and i5-1155G7 -- that are built for what they called 'thin-and-light' laptops.

These two processors are the first 5.0 GHz in the U-series and 'accelerate the number of designs with Intel Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+).' The company plans to build more than 60 new consumer designs using the two new processors and almost 250 OEM designs based on 11th Gen Intel Core.

HP, Acer and ASUS will be part of the first group of OEMs to use the 11th Gen Intel Core U- and H-series this year, according to a statement from Intel. 

The company is planning on announcing dozens more designs in 2022 as part of new deals with HP, DoCoMo, MediaTek and China Mobile. 

In addition to the new processors, Intel announced its first 5G M.2 solution with worldwide carrier certification. The tool is a culmination of a recently announced pact with Fibocom and MediaTek.
