Computerworld.com reported that “Microsoft has announced a new category of Windows PCs, designed to leverage the full power of AI. Christened Copilot+ PCs and developed in collaboration with PC manufacturers such as HP, Dell, Samsung, Asus, Acer, Lenovo, and Microsoft Surface, these devices will boast higher processing power, all-day battery life, and a suite of AI features.”  The May 21, 2024 report entitled ” Microsoft launches AI-powered Copilot+ PCs” (https://www.computerworld.com/article/2116724/microsoft-launches-ai-powered-copilot-pcs.html) included these comments:

Copilot+ PCs represent the “most significant change to the Windows platform in decades,” Yusuf Mehdi, executive vice president and consumer chief marketing officer at Microsoft said in a blog post. “We have completely reimagined the entirety of the PC – from silicon to the operating system, the application layer to the cloud – with AI at the center.”

The first batch of Copilot+ PCs will come with Qualcomm Snapdragon X series processors and will hit the shelves on June 18, the blog said. PCs with Intel and AMD chips will join the bandwagon soon after.

Microsoft has designed an “all-new” system architecture combining the power of CPU, GPU, and a high-performance Neural Processing Unit (NPU) to add AI capabilities to the Copilot+ PCs.
