Intel Lunar Lake arrives Q3 2024 as Intel jump more into AI

By - | Views: 23,592

Oh yay, more AI stuff. Intel have announced that Lunar Lake is due to arrive in Q3 2024 and it will include a neural processing unit (NPU) for AI fans. This will be their latest line of CPUs designed for laptops, so even if you're not into AI there's a good bet if you go for a new laptop next yeah that it may have Intel Lunar Lake.

"With breakthrough power efficiency, the trusted compatibility of x86 architecture and the industry’s deepest catalog of software enablement across the CPU, GPU and NPU, we will deliver the most competitive joint client hardware and software offering in our history with Lunar Lake and Copilot+" – Michelle Johnston Holthaus, Intel executive vice president and general manager of the Client Computing Group

Intel say that starting in Q3 2024 ready for the holiday season, more than 80 new laptop designs will arrive from 20 different vendors.

It's not all AI though of course, these new chips will come with an improved CPU and GPU, with Xe2 graphics so we should hopefully see a good boost in efficiency and power for those of you on the go. As Intel say: "Lunar Lake is expected to be a groundbreaking mobile processor for AI PCs with more than 3 times the AI performance compared with the previous generation. With more than 40 NPU tera operations per second (TOPS), Intel’s next generation processors will provide the capabilities necessary for Copilot+ experiences coming to market. In addition to the higher performing NPU, Lunar Lake will also be equipped with over 60 GPU TOPS delivering more than 100 platform TOPS."

Get ready for a while lot more AI AI AI to come out of Intel, and AMD too.

On Windows mostly I bet.

Actually Intel's Linux support is quite good.
Open drivers, lots of Linux clients and active(proprietary) collaboration in Kernel development.
Also the large AI players all run Linux, so making AI stuff windows exclusive is asking for problems if you're not microsoft.

Yeah sure. But I'm talking "software enablement". That's quite different to driver stacks.

Of their non-hardware bound software 55 support Microsoft Windows* and 49 Linux.This can be found on their website.
