AI is everywhere, says Intel
Intel is gearing up for the launch of CPU series for consumers and data centers.
On December 14th, Intel is set to unveil two product series, as announced by the company in a recent media alert. Intel has officially confirmed an upcoming livestream scheduled for this day, during which they will introduce the Intel Core Ultra CPUs, codenamed Meteor Lake, and the 5th Gen Xeon Scalable processors, known as Emerald Rapids.
With a clear focus on AI, this launch aims to showcase how Intel’s new CPUs can enhance AI workloads. The utilization of Intel’s 4 process technology in Meteor Lake, coupled with a disaggregated CPU, GPU, and AI-dedicated VPU design, underscores their commitment to AI support. Pat Gelsinger previously mentioned that the new series incorporates ‘Core AI capabilities,’ although specific details on how this technology will be harnessed in the Meteor Lake series are still pending confirmation.
Intel’s pre-launch presentation and teasers focused on AI-driven experiences in today’s operating systems and applications that can harness machine learning computing. Such AI enhancements include improved video conferencing, improved realism in in-game 3D animations, real-time transcription and translation for gaming, and AI assistance, all contributing to enhanced multi-app productivity and audiovisual capabilities. These are the user AI experiences that Intel intends to target with their Core Ultra CPUs.
Join Intel Chief Executive Officer Pat Gelsinger and other Intel leaders for Intel’s “AI Everywhere” event. Marking a momentous year for the company, Intel will accelerate its execution engine and power AI workloads across the data center, the cloud and the edge with the launch of 5th Gen Intel® Xeon® processors and Intel® Core™ Ultra processors.
When: Dec. 14 at 10 a.m. EST (7 a.m. PST)
Where: Live from Nasdaq in New York
It’s important to highlight that the event exclusively focuses on the Core Ultra CPUs designed for consumers. This means that the discussion will revolve around Meteor Lake chips. However, it’s worth noting that refreshed low-power Raptor Lake CPUs, which are part of the Core 100 series but do not bear the “Ultra” designation, might be introduced at a later time.
