You've got all the biggies for sure! I'll do my best, but AMD, Nvidia, and Intel are sure to keep details limited to press releases. I personally think Vega and Ryzen are the most interesting, simply because they are unknown, and have the most potential to impress (or disappoint). Oddly, though,  AMD won't have a presence on the show floor, instead staying secluded in a meeting room hidden away in the basement of one of the hotels. But I know exactly where it is and you can be sure I'll be paying them a visit.

By the way, I'll be very surprised if Intel offers any info on Skylake X. I certainly hope they do, but i think they are playing it cautious with pre-release products ever since the aborted Broadwell release in 2014. Getting hopes up and then failing to deliver is worse for business then never mentioning a product at all.

Happy New Year Ari!
I'm curious to find out if Intel will be making any changes to their Skull Canyon Nuc in 2017.
I've debated about purchasing the current model only because of the mediocre graphics performance.
Any chance they would be upgrading the graphics in 2017?

Have Fun at CES!

I'll definitely be looking into that, but I can tell you from initial coverage of the new Kaby Lake NUCs announced today that there is no current replacement for the Skull Canyon unit. So far, all Kaby Lake NUCs will be using dual-core CPUs. It may end up that Skull Canyon was a one-off product, and that Intel decides there's not enough demand to continue, but I'll do my best to confirm one way or the other!

By the way, in case you'd be interested in those dual-core models, the Core i3 version is expected to hit the market at the end of the month, with the Core i5/i7 dual-cores arriving at the end of February.

Here's TBG's commentary on the Nvidia Keynote address.

On TBG's schedule for today: what will likely be much more interesting private meetings with Western Digital, MSI, Logitech, Corsair, HyperX, Thermaltake, and D-Link. Will also be stopping by to chat with AMD, Dell, Lenovo, and Creative Labs. And that's not to mention meetings with two Baby Tech CEOs on behalf of TBG's sister site, Baby Buyer's Guru.

Is going to be a busy day!

Thanks Ari. Definitely going to do a custom water cooled Ryzen 8c16t build.

This will make a great system. Could even outperform your 5960X!

Hey Bill, I shared your question during my interview with Intel at CES, and got some helpful answers. Check out TBG's coverage of the Intel 7th-Generation Core Family for all the latest on Intel's newest CPUs and NUC PCs!

Hi Ari,
Thanks for asking about the Skull Canyon.
It will be interesting to find out what the upgrade will be. (Hopefully Iris will get a shot of steroids)
I also see that Gen 7 NUC now is available with the dual core i7 processor where as the Gen 6 NUC stopped at the dual core i5.
A dual core i7 Gen 6 NUC was never offered.
I have to wonder with this addition to their line up, if the "potential upgrade" to the Skull Canyon might be more geared to gaming as originally claimed but fell far short with mediocre graphics.

Again thanks for asking!
-Bill

Ari, my 5960x custom water cooled rig at 4.4 is rock solid so I'm anxious to see how a custom watercooled 8c16t RyZen will match up.

Sony has been making OLED screens and viewfinders for years now, so they've had the technology long before LG was in the business.  Strange that they wouldn't apply it to their TVs if they thought it would make for a better product.  Maybe there's something they about it they don't agree with.
