AMD, Intel, And NVIDIA, Announce New CPU, GPU And Automotive Processors At CES 20221-Ranked Industry Analyst Patrick Moorhead dives into Intel, NVIDIA, and AMD processor innovations that were announced at CES 2022.

Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 : We saw several new electric models from Mercedes-Benz last year, but the EQS 53 is the first fully electric performance car to come from AMG. The Porsche Taycan Turbo S rival offers a dual-motor set-up with 751bhp and 752lb ft of torque. That’s more power than the twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 unit from the GT S coupé. Design changes will be minor compared to the standard EQS, but expect the model’s motors and steering to receive a bit of AMG-specific tuning.  Spring Cupra Born : Cupra’s sporty Volkswagen ID 3 will initially be available with a 58kWh battery, with 45kWh and 77kWh variants to follow. Cupra has gone for a more dynamic package, with stand-out styling and additional driving dynamism. A 231bhp performance variant will also arrive later this year.  Ora Cat : A retro-styled Volkswagen ID 3 rival will go on sale early this year from Chinese EV brand Ora. The model, named the Cat, will return 261-miles of range for an affordable £25,000. It’s driven by a single motor mounted to the front axle, good for 169bhp and 184lb ft. It looks like it could dbe ideal for city driving, with a 0-30mph time of 3.8sec and a 0-62mph time of 8.5sec. It’s entry-level price is bolstered by impressive tech, including mobile phone-controlled remote functions and over-the-air updates. Advertisement Tesla Model Y : The jacked up version of Tesla’s Model 3 will finally arrive in the UK this year after a significant wait. Our first impressions were good and it’s expected the jacked-up model will be just as much of a smash hit with customers as it’s compact saloon sibling. It will also benefit from Tesla’s charging network, still unrivaled in the UK for convenience and reliability. Volkswagen ID 5 : The ID 5 is based on the smaller ID 4 and retains most of the model's mechanicals. Entry-level models will start from £47,000 with a choice of 172bhp and 201bhp electric motors. In the UK, the standard 77kWh battery provides up to 323 miles of range. A hot GTX model looks likely to offer 295bhp and a 0-62mph sprint of 6.3secs. : The firm’s first EV-only car, the C40 Recharge takes coupe-styling and a silent but violent 62mph sprint of under 5.0secs on top-rung models. A 78kWh battery provides 260 miles of range while prices start from £57,000 in the UK. April BMW iX M60 : BMW’s powerful electric SUV will arrive this year with 611bhp, a 4.0sec charge to 62mph and styling which is… ahem… stand-out. Its price tag is also standout, at £111,905. Expect a 357-mile range, which is slightly lower than the standard iX.  Advertisement Citroën Ami : While it only just about qualifies as a ‘car,’ we like the look of the Citroën Ami. The French firm’s wacky two-seat EV has a top speed of just 28mph with power supplied from a 5.5kWh battery. It produces just 8bhp, but it’s already proving popular as Citroën announced it would come to the UK, while it was originally only destined for the French market.  Porsche Taycan GTS : Is the Taycan GTS the best performance EV out there? Tesla fans might disagree. Either way, the GTS will slot in between the Taycan 4S and the Turbo, with the same dual motor set-up as the latter, but with power restricted to 590bhp instead of 670bhp. Luckily, its 626lb ft torque figure remains the same as the Turbo.  : The estate version of the Taycan, the Sport Turismo loses the Taycan’s off-road styling and drops closer to the ground. If you choose the GTS, you’ll have the fondly named Porsche Taycan Sport Turismo Gran Turismo Sport. May Genesis GV60 : Genesis’ first bespoke EV, the GV60 will be based on Hyundai’s E-GMP platform used by the Ioniq 5 and the Kia EV6. A four-wheel drive, dual-motor set-up has led Genesis to claim the range-topping model has performance ‘comparable to a sports car.’  Advertisement Lexus RZ : We’ve not seen a production version of Lexus’s first bespoke electric car yet, but we know the RZ will have fully variable four-wheel drive and steer-by-wire technology. Lexus says the crossover, based on the e-TNGA platform as the Toyota bZ4X and the Subaru Solterra, will offer “incredible cornering and roadholding.” Lexus also claims its priority is “exhilarating driving performance.”  Mercedes-Benz EQT : This is a cool MPV. No, seriously. The EQT concept, developed in partnership with Renault, previewed the design of the new T-Class’s electric sibling (a Volkswagen Caddy rival), but there’s no word yet on if the integrated skateboard carrier will survive…. Summer Dacia Spring EV : Dacia’s first electric car sticks to the firm’s philosophy of keeping things simple. You get four seats, a 44bhp electric motor and 140 miles of range, but also a one-star NCAP safety rating. We’ll likely hear in January whether the model is coming to the UK in January.  Genesis Electrified GV70 : The BMW iX3 rival gets 482bhp, 516lb ft and a 310-mile range. You’ll also be able to charge from 10-80% in 18 minutes with a 350kW charger. Other features include a new E-Terrain mode for more challenging driving environments, a road noise reduction system, and automatic electronic control suspension.  Advertisement Hyundai Ioniq 6 : The Ioniq 6 will be Hyundai’s second bespoke EV, and could have the power and poise to challenge the Porsche Taycan. Its arrival was expected by now, but last-minute design changes mean an on-sale date of mid-2022. The delay has meant Hyundai has been able to fit a larger 77.4kWh battery though, up from 72.6kWh, so the wait should be worth it.  Lotus Evija : Hethel’s new flagship will arrive in the form of an all-electric supercar, with four motors producing a staggering, combined 1972bhp. The model’s top speed is 200mph, while its range stands at 250 miles. Pandemic-related issues have pushed the model’s launch back, but our expectations are still as high as ever, given how much we loved the prototype.  Mercedes-Benz EQE : Mercedes’ new CLS-sized saloon has the BMW i4 and Tesla Model 3 in its sights. The car is made from 100% recycled steel and the German firm claims it will offer up to 410 miles between charges. If you’re a fan of SUVs, a larger EQE will follow in 2023. Skoda Enyaq iV Coupé : Skoda’s Enyaq iV Coupé adds a sloped roof to the standard Enyaq iV. It will be a bit less practical, but makes up for the loss in space with a sleeker style. Battery sizes are expected to remain the same as the standard car, but could offer improved efficiency thanks to the coupé’s improved aerodynamics - up to over 333 miles for the range-topping 77kWh battery.  Advertisement
