It’s time for our holiday look at the laptop market, and what a year 2020 has been in the laptop space. After starting out with a large number of Intel Ice Lake designs early in the year, AMD then countered with their best laptop chip to date – Renoir – solving many of the power issues of previous designs, and providing more cores than the competition. Not to be outdone, Intel countered with their 11th gen Tiger Lake SoC, building on the successes of Ice Lake, and adding in a brand new GPU. Then, Apple got into the laptop game with their M1 processor, which is most definitely a game changer. Overall, 2020 has been a fantastic year for laptop buyers, which is perhaps even more impressive considering all of the strangeness that has come with this year.
