Congratulations to all of our winners from the Best of CES 2021, including our Best of the Best winner, AMD’s Ryzen 5000 mobile CPUs.

AMD still has a long way to go if it wants to snatch the Windows laptop market away from Intel, but it’s making all the right moves. Intel, as CES continued, also announced a new CEO, VMWare’s Pat Gelsinger. What will it do next?
