Who is coming to CES 2023?
With over 400 brands attending CES 2023, expect to see brands big and small deliver their latest product launches from around the globe. Featured exhibitors so far include AMD, Amazon, Canon, Google, LG, Lenovo, Microsoft, Samsung, Sony, and more, and we're already getting a tease of what laptops, tablets, monitors, and everything else to expect.
Lenovo at CES 2023
Lenovo always delivers its next iteration of ThinkPads, IdeaPads, and more during CES, and this year will be no different. We know this as a fact, as the laptop manufacturer has already revealed a list of laptops, monitors, and even a tablet that it will showcase. Will there be anything else up its sleeve? We'll have to wait and see.

Asus at CES 2023
Asus will be "seeing an incredible future" at its CES 2023 Asus launch event, and the company has been teasing what we can expect. Apparently, it has something to do with an AR experience and what looks to be an Asus Zenbook with a dial. We expect "one of the biggest ASUS innovations" to be something creative pros will enjoy, possibly a 3D screen. We won't know for sure until the announcement is revealed on January 4.

Of course, when it comes to Asus, we're expecting plenty of gaming laptops. With RTX 40 Series GPUs for desktops already out in the wild, along with 13th Gen Intel chips expected, we're hoping to see new Asus ROG Zephyrus, Asus TUF, and Asus ROG Strix with these next-gen processors. Asus is teasing a "Maxed Out" reveal, so expect a major bump in gaming performance.

Sony at CES 2023
It's almost a given that Sony will be showing off its highly anticipated PSVR 2 headset during CES 2023, seeing as it's set to launch in February 2023. However, Sony is unpredictable when it comes to big reveals during CES, so anything is on the table.
We've heard rumors of a new PS5 model being in the works, one with a detachable disc drive. However, we're unsure if this will be unveiled during the event. We're likely to see a selection of new 4K and 8K displays, and we know Sony Honda Mobility will be making an appearance on stage during Sony's Global Press Conference on January 4, meaning a vehicle is in store.
LG at CES 2023
During CES 2021, LG gave us a full refresh of its LG Gram laptop lineup and a tease of the LG rollable phone (but that didn't see the light of day). This year, however, we're expecting to see a completely different kind of display: “the world’s first 12-inch high-resolution stretchable display.”
The new innovation in display tech boasts a rubber band-like flexibility that allows it to be stretched up to 14 inches, using a micro-LED light source with a pixel pitch of less than 40μm to display images. It's a wild invention we're excited to check out, but we're still unsure if it will be shown off.
Other than that, we can expect a selection of home appliances, including the usual selection of TVs, like the LG C3 OLED TV, along with a see-through refrigerator, washers, and more.
LG is kicking CES 2023 off with a bang. Its LG gram laptop lineup got expanded to include two new models: Ultraslim and Style. While both pack a punch when it comes to power and portability, the former caught my eye.
Not only is the LG gram Ultraslim the thinnest gram model yet, but it's slimmer than any current-gen laptop on the market, including the M2 MacBook Air, which is already razor thin at 0.44 inches.
Samsung at CES 2023
CES 2023 has officially kicked off with Samsung revealing the world's first dual UHD gaming monitor stacking up at a whopping 57 inches. A monitor for the wealthy gamer, and those that can only dream.
The monitor that the company is highlighting is the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9, a 57-inch, 7,680×2,160 gaming monitor. The company also revealed the Odyssey OLED G9, ViewFinity S9, and Smart Monitor M8.
Samsung didn't provide pricing or release dates, but you can bet that these monitors will be on the "expensive-as-a-car" side of things.
Intel at CES 2023
Seeing as Intel revealed its 12th Gen Alder Lake mobile chips at CES 2022, which made its way onto the best laptops we've seen this year, we're expecting to see the next jump in processing power in the 13th Gen Intel CPUs, otherwise known as its Intel Raptor Lake lineup.
These will deliver even more competition to chips from AMD and Apple, but even more excitingly, we're sure to see these chips arrive on next year's selection of new laptops. What performance gains can we expect? We won't have to wait much longer to find out. In the meantime, you can check out what the future of Intel looks like in our in-depth State of Intel.
Intel revealed its next generation 13th Gen Intel Core mobile processor for laptops at CES 2023, including the new flagship Intel Core i9-13980HX — the "world’s fastest mobile processor."
With Intel's 13th Gen desktop CPUs already announced(opens in new tab) in 2022, we got a tease of the processing speeds to expect on laptops. Now, Intel has introduced 32 new 13th Gen Intel Core mobile processors, and it includes the first 24-core processor for a laptop.
AMD at CES 2023
If Intel is set to make a big CPU announcement, you can expect AMD to do the very same — along with its next-gen AMD Radeon RX 7000 series GPUs. We're expecting to see many gaming laptops deliver all-AMD configurations, which means fresh AMD Ryzen and AMD Radeon processors.
CES is usually the time when AMD shows off its next CPU and GPU offerings, much like last year's Ryzen 6000 series CPUs. The rumor mill has already been spitting out alleged benchmarks for what we can expect, but we won't know for sure until we see it from AMD ourselves. The future of AMD is looking bright, and you can find out more in our State of AMD.
CES 2023 is here, and alongside the massive updates from Intel and Nvidia, AMD has thrown its chips in the nacho bowl that is consumer tech. AMD is set to launch the AMD Radeon RX 7000 Series of laptops starting in February for serious competition.
AMD introduces AMD Ryzen AI, the world's first integrated AI engine on an X86 processor. According to AMD, it's designed to be up to 50% more efficient than the Apple M2 neural engine. The company is also introducing its latest RDNA 3 Architecture to the laptops, which optimizes performance with AI accelerators and allows GPUs to be tuned up to 50W and above, creating more power efficiency, at least that's what AMD claims.
Nvidia at CES 2023
With Nvidia GeForce RTX 40 Series already out in the wild for desktops, it's incredibly likely we'll be seeing the next-gen GPUs make their way onto laptops, too. The question is, what kind of 40 Series graphics cards are we expecting to see?
According to leaker momomo_us on Twitter via VideoCardz, HP is tipped to bring six configurations of its HP Omen 17 featuring Nvidia's GeForce RTX 40 Series mobile GPUs. This includes an RTX 4060 with 8GB of VRAM, RTX 4070 with 8GB VRAM, RTX 4080 with 12GB VRAM, and RTX 4090 with 16GB of VRAM.
We've heard Nvidia's take on what the future of laptops looks like, with the company stating that it will "keep producing world-class leading discrete GPUs." If the leaked listing is to be believed, then we can expect RTX 4060 through to RTX 4090 GPUs to come to gaming laptops in 2023. There have been rumors of RTX 4050 graphics cards coming to laptops, too, but the most interesting inclusion is RTX 4090, seeing how gaming laptops didn't come equipped with an RTX 3090 GPU.
As expected, Nvidia has launched its GeForce RTX 40 Series laptop GPUs at CES 2023 — available starting February 8 from the world’s top manufacturers, including Acer, Alienware, Asus, Dell, Gigabyte, HP, Lenovo, MSI, Razer, and Samsung.
Nvidia uses the Ada Lovelace architecture to deliver the “largest-ever generational leap in performance and power efficiency.” In fact, the company has made a huge claim, boasting that these GPUs are now up to twice as fast as a PlayStation 5, while being just one-sixth the size. We can't wait to put that to the test next month, but for now,vidi let's take a look at what Nvidia had to say about its new GPUs.
