CES 2022: the biggest tech from CES 2022

Despite the spread of the Omicron variant, we still saw a lot of exciting moments, despite the fact that half of the show went virtual.

Didn't we get a chance to watch every press conference? You're in luck because I broke down the biggest news from CES 2022.

That includes new chips that will power your gaming and work computers, future electric trucks you ll be driving and the 100 inch plus TVs you ll eventually watch.

The global chip shortage may still be putting the screws to a slew of industries, but you wouldn't know that from the number of new processors that debuted during CES.

Intel and AMD AMD both came intoCES with all-new laptop processors, with Intel debuting its 12th generation Core processors and AMD showing off its Ryzen 6000 line. Both companies praised their chips performance capabilities, power efficiency, and power efficiency.

Intel has taken shots at its former partner, Apple AAPL, which stopped using Intel chips in its laptop in favor of its own processors. Intel called out Apple's M 1 Pro chip in its presentation, saying it falls behind the new Intel chip in terms of performance.

Graphics giant Nvidia NVDA has rolled out its latest RTX 3070 Ti and 3080 Ti laptop graphics processors, both of which should offer some serious firepower for video editing and gaming.

TVs as far as you could see were as far as you could see.

TVs are my favorite CES products because I end up drooling over sets that I won't be able to afford. The themes revolved around three display technologies: OLED, MicroLED, and Mini-LED this year.

Mini-LED TVs are more or less the same as standard LEDs. They pack hundreds rather than dozens of LEDs into their backlighting. Using more LEDs allows for better control over things like light distribution across a screen, which can mean better colors in a range of on-screen lighting scenarios.

OLED organic light-emitting diodes don't need backlights because their pixels emit their own light. Pixels can be turned off or completely shut off, making OLED TVs superior to LED sets. LED TVs, however, are typically brighter than OLEDs.

MicroLED TVs combine the best of LCD and OLED by using millions of individually controlled pixels to create on-screen images. That means you get the brightness of LCDs and the vibrancy and balance of OLEDs. They are super expensive, in the tens of thousands of dollars.

The 89-inch model of Samsung will end up in penthouses and mansions at first, but the tech will come down in price and should become the go-to for everyone in the future.

LG unveiled its latest OLED TVs, ranging in size from 42 inches to 97 inches. The company also showed off its own 136-inch MicroLED TV.

The Sony SONY then showed off its own OLED sets ranging from 65 inches to 42 inches, as well as its own mini-LED TVs.

An enormous number of cars debuted at CES 2022. The Silverado EV is expected to get some 400 miles on a single charge and can get 100 miles of range on a 10 minute charge. The company says it will launch with a Work Truck Trim and a First Edition Trim.

The Work Truck will cost $39,900, while the First Edition will cost less than $105,000.

Many of the cars were concept or prototypes, outside of the Silverado. Chrysler STLA brought out its new Airflow conceptEV, and Mercedes Benz introduced its 620 mile per charge EQXX concept.

Finally, there is Sony s SONY Vision S 02. A 7 seat electric SUV, the Vision S 02 is Sony's second prototype vehicle after 2020 s Vision S 01. In 2022 Sony will launch a new company called Sony Mobility to determine if it will sell its cars to the public.

Those are the cliff-notes from this year's CES. Many of these products will end up in your home, or driveway in the coming years, despite the fact that most of it seems super futuristic. None of Microsoft is Yahoo Finance's Company of the Year 2021
