AMD HD 8000M Series
AMD has already launched their latest lineup of mobile graphics card, and Samsung and ASUS have already begun loading them into their notebooks. CES should give us a closer look at these notebooks as well as the low-end "Mars" chips which are based on the 28nm Fab process.
NVIDIA GeForce 700M Series
NVIDIA's 700M GPUs are currently in the chute, although they won't be featuring any new chips. The GeForce 710M and GeForce GT730M are also expected to be officially introduced, even though they've already appeared in some devices.
NVIDIA Tegra 4
An internal roadmap has already been leaked, and it's probably safe to assume that the successor to the Tegra 3 SoC should be on hand at CES. The Tegra 4 chip, codenamed Wayne, is based on the Cortex A-15 cores and should offer much improved graphics performance.
Windows 8 / RT
The desktop version of Windows 8 has taken the market by storm, but the tablet version has yet to fully blossom. We can definitely expect numerous Intel Core-based Ultrabooks and convertibles to fully display all that Windows RT has to offer.
Google usually likes to use their own venues to announce their latest products, but that doesn't mean other manufacturers won't have a lot to show off. Many smartphones, tablets and others will be releasing their latest Android 4.2 goodies.
Intel Haswell CPUs
Not much has been heard about Intel's next generation of CPUs, but CES should definitely have loads of info. The new chips are expected to be extremely energy efficient and could even find their way into various tablets.
