The most awaited products in 2021 would offer unmatched creativity, speed, and efficiency. The best is yet to come from exascale computing to 5nm graphics cards and 8K gaming.
No one foresaw that 2020 would be the way it was. It left an imprint on us and affected almost all facets of life. The COVID-19 experience is not one to forget. It even changed our communication. Technological played a vital albeit necessary role in our communication with one another – especially during the total lockdown.
We will look at what 2021 will hold for the information technology industry and our dreams of a vaccine that will eventually relieve movement constraints. Britain-Reviews got you covered when it comes to getting more information about these technological advancements.
Here are some of our projections focused on the developments that we look forward to most.
Computers With Exascale
For several years, the rise in computing power has seen exponential growth. Especially in the second half of the 2010s, though, we saw the changing pace slow down.
Summit, the largest supercomputer globally, was unveiled in 2018 by IBM and held its designation in 2019 and 2020. However, China, the US, the European Union, Japan, India, and Taiwan are developing many challengers. Both of these can be deployed in the early to mid-2020s. In 2021 China will build and produce local processors (e.g., the Tianhe-3), which may achieve a continuous exaFLOP output. ExaFLOP operations are 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 per second.
Rocket Lake Chip from Intel
In the first quarter of 2021, Intel’s Rocket Lake Processors, the first modern microarchitecture of PCs’ business, was introduced in the 11th generation in five years. Ryzen 4000 or 5000 is to be marketed and launched by AMD processors later this year.
The latest Rocket Lake specifics are not especially well maintained. We know that for the first time, the processors will support PCIe 4.0 and are primarily expected to come with a new PCU microarchitecture.
The ship’s clock speed may approach or surpass the current 5.4 GHz peak boost, which will pave the way for a rivalry between AMD and Intel. Moreover, MSI has already announced that all its motherboards B450/X470, will support the latest Ryzen CPUs.
Cards for Nvidia and AMD Graphics
Nvidia announced the launch of the latest RTX 3080 in September 2020. Made with improved RT cores and tensor cores, this graphics card is so popular that waiting lists are open to getting one already.
Nvidia is now planning its first 5nm cards for 2021. The organization seems to have already booked TSMC chipmaker capacities. According to DigiTimes, Nvidia and TSMC will manufacture Hopper-based next-generation graphics devices. Hopper is the next step after Ampere, according to rumours. Look for electronic gadgets reviews to find out if you will need the upgrade. In addition to using TSMC for its 5nm products, Nvidia will also use Samsung for smaller orders.
CES 2021, to be held in January 2021, will see the release of the long-awaited 2 Major Navi graphics cards from AMD.
Superfast Games and More Artificial Intelligence
Artificial intelligence is very keen and a technological advancement today, without a doubt – and for 2021, it will undoubtedly remain so.
We saw an immediate need during the COVID-19 pandemic to rapidly examine and translate virus data. Governments, academic research centres, and global health organizations have worked together to establish innovative methods of collecting knowledge and dealing with it.
With the latest GPUs (which currently doubles their predecessors’ performance), 4K gaming in the PC world may be more economical. Even 8K with the next line of cards is available, such as the RDNA 2 architecture of Radeon, which includes hardware-accelerated ray tracking and variable rate shad.
Several companies have already been working on DDR5 RAM for PCs, which can already be seen on the Samsung Galaxy smartphone S20, indicating the technology is pending the official launch of more compatible CPUs.
Overall, 2021 seems like a fascinating information technology year. We will undoubtedly see a surge in the market in the months ahead of brand new hardware and smarter applications.
