Tech giant Intel has recently unveiled its new range of AI-ready processors for personal computers, said to be 50 percent faster than the previous generation while consuming 80% less energy.

Code-named Lunar Lake, the mobile processor is set to deliver AI performance for Microsoft-powered Copilot+ PCs. 

The new processor boasts more than 40 neural processing unit (NPU) tera operations per second (TOPS) to help power new Copilot+ experiences that are coming to market. The NPU of a device is essentially architecture that simulates a human brain’s neural network.

Lunar Lake is also equipped with over 60 graphic processing unit (GPU) TOPS, delivering more than 100 platform TOPS. GPU is a specialized electronic circuit meant to accelerate computer graphics and image processing. 

Corporate vice president of Windows + devices at Microsoft, Pavan Davuluri, said the launch of Lunar Lake “will bring meaningful, fundamental improvements across security, battery life and more.”

“We are excited to see Lunar Lake come to market with a 40+ TOPS NPU, which will deliver Microsoft’s Copilot+ experiences at scale when available,” he said.

The processors were designed and developed by Israeli architects and engineers at Intel’s Haifa and Petah Tikva development centers.  

Lunar Lake is set to hit the market in time for the 2024 holiday season in the United States.
