Intel Corp. announced new PC chips Thursday, which can power many computers built for artificial-intelligence tasks.

The company’s new Core Ultra mobile processors will make it easier for people to use AI applications on their personal computers, Intel

said in a press release Thursday ahead of an event focused on AI.

“Whether you’re working, learning, streaming, gaming or creating on-the-go, people need more performance and battery life out of their PCs while taking full advantage of the AI capabilities that are increasingly present in operating systems and applications,” Intel said in its release. “The AI PC represents a new generation of personal computers to confront this demand.”

The company said that its new Core Ultra processors will be in “more than 230 of the world’s first AI PCs,” including those from HP Inc. and Dell Technologies Inc.

The Core Ultra, built on the Intel 4 process technology, “represents the company’s largest architectural shift in 40 years” and features advanced packaging technology. Intel said that new Efficient-cores, or E-cores, as well as low-power Efficient-cores, or LP E-cores, offer performance that’s up to 11% better than “the competition.”

Intel also announced its new fifth-generation Xeon server processors, saying these give customers “more compute and faster memory at the same power envelope as the previous generation.”

The company is positioning these chips as well as critical for the AI revolution. The processors offer up to 42% higher inference performance and less than 100 milliseconds of latency on large language models under 20 billion parameters, Intel said in its release.
