Intel announced during its Intel Innovation 2023 developers conference, that its first Core Ultra CPUs, which include an AI-based neural processing unit (NPU), will officially launch on December 14.
Intel previously announced it would be rebranding its CPUs with new Core and Core Ultra branding, ditching the "i" brand in the process. In a press release, the company offered up some more details on these chips, which have been described under its "Meteor Lake" code name in the past.
Intel stated: "Core Ultra integrates an NPU into client silicon for the first time. The NPU is built to enable low power and high quality and provide entirely new PC experiences. It is ideal for workloads migrating from the CPU that need higher quality or efficiency, or for workloads that would typically run in the cloud due to lack of efficient client compute."
