The primary laptops packing Intel’s new Meteor Lake CPUs may very well be unveiled by Samsung and different laptop computer makers as quickly as subsequent week, in keeping with a brand new report.
Whereas we’ve got but to listen to any official affirmation from laptop computer makers, this reporting from Yonhap News (by way of Tom’s Hardware) could be very plausible as a result of Intel has already confirmed it can unveil the primary Meteor Lake laptop computer CPUs subsequent week on December 14.
So the report that Samsung is planning to unveil a brand new Galaxy E-book 4 laptop computer powered by Meteor Lake subsequent Friday (December 15) is smart, as does the addendum that rivals like HP and Lenovo are additionally on the point of unveil new Meteor Lake laptops.
In accordance with Yonhap’s reporting (which has been machine translated from its authentic Korean), Samsung could also be among the many first to roll out a Meteor Lake-powered laptop computer as a result of the AI-focused nature of Meteor Lake chips might make them well-suited for driving Samsung’s Gauss AI.
If you happen to’re not acquainted, Gauss is predicted to be a significant a part of the corporate’s gadgets going ahead, and Samsung has huge plans for AI on the Galaxy S24 that will probably be powered by Gauss. Nevertheless, if this new report proves true, it is potential we may even see Samsung Gauss (or a variant thereof) debut on Samsung laptops just like the Galaxy E-book 4 as nicely. Actually, if the launch timing works out we would even see it debut on a laptop computer earlier than we see it operating on a cellphone, as Samsung is predicted to launch the Galaxy S24 in January 2024.
And naturally, that is simply the tip of the iceberg relating to firms pushing “AI” into their gadgets. When the primary Meteor Lake laptops begin rolling out subsequent month and thru the primary quarter of 2024 (we count on to see many at CES in January) you possibly can count on to see all types of adverts touting AI options within the newest laptops, tablets and smartphones.
We’re in the course of a seismic shift in the way in which we discuss computer systems, and subsequent week you possibly can count on one other tremor to shake up the business as Intel unveils the primary Meteor Lake CPUs.
These will probably be sport a brand new branding scheme (“Intel Core Extremely”) and a brand new chiplet design that, put merely, divides every chip into three major elements: a CPU, a GPU, and a brand new NPU (Neural Processing Unit) that is optimized for AI duties.
We’re hoping that Intel will be capable of ship on its claims that this new design will lead to higher efficiency, higher graphics and higher battery life for the perfect Home windows laptops in the marketplace. Samsung’s laptops have usually carried out nicely in these regards already, so I am desperate to see if the corporate actually does drop a brand new Galaxy E-book packing Meteor Lake chips subsequent week.
If it does, this will probably be our first style of the AI-centric way forward for laptops Intel’s been driving so arduous in direction of all this yr.
