Intel has revealed their plans to introduce two new product series on December 14th through an official media alert. The company has also confirmed that they will host a livestream event on that date to introduce the Intel Core Ultra CPUs, codenamed Meteor Lake, and the 5th Gen Xeon Scalable processors, which are known as Emerald Rapids.
This launch is geared towards highlighting the AI capabilities of Intel’s new CPUs. The integration of Intel’s 4-process technology in Meteor Lake, along with a design that separates the CPU, GPU, and AI-dedicated VPU, demonstrates their dedication to supporting AI workloads. While Pat Gelsinger mentioned the inclusion of ‘Core AI capabilities’ in the new series, specific details on how this technology will be utilized in the Meteor Lake series are yet to be confirmed.
Intel’s pre-launch presentation and teasers have highlighted AI-driven improvements in contemporary operating systems and applications, utilizing machine learning computing. These enhancements encompass enhanced video conferencing, increased realism in 3D in-game animations, real-time transcription and translation for gaming, and AI support, all aimed at elevating multi-app productivity and audiovisual capabilities. These user-focused AI experiences are the key objectives for Intel’s 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 crucial to emphasize that the event is solely centered on the Core Ultra CPUs tailored for consumers, specifically the Meteor Lake chips. Nevertheless, it’s worth mentioning that refreshed low-power Raptor Lake CPUs, belonging to the Core 100 series but without the “Ultra” label, could potentially be introduced at a later date.
