Major PC manufacturers announced its latest AI PCs


Powered by the latest chipsets from Qualcomm, new Windows PCs on Arm architecture will deliver faster performance, better battery life, and more competition to Apple.

On Monday, major Windows PC manufacturers, including Microsoft, Asus, Dell, HP, Lenovo, and Acer, announced their latest AI laptops and tablets, which Microsoft calls "Copilot+" PCs. The devices will feature the AI-powered tool Recall, which remembers PC activity.

All devices will be powered by Qualcomm's X-series chips and equipped with Neural processing units (NPUs), which can handle AI and machine learning operations right on a PC.

NPUs will enhance the efficiency of graphic processing units and central processing units by handling AI tasks, allowing a PC to dedicate its resources to more demanding operations.

Another advantage that Arm-based Qualcomm's chips bring to PCs is efficiency, meaning that the devices come with significantly improved battery life.

Depending on the manufacturer, the new devices will be available to consumers in a couple of months.

The Asus Vivobook S15 is one of the PCs equipped with the latest and more powerful version of Qualcomm's chipset, the Snapdragon X Elite.

In terms of size, it will be slender – a 14.7 mm thick device with a 15.6-inch 3K (2880x1620) ASUS Lumina OLED display and a 120 Hz refresh rate.

Vivobook S15 will feature Harman Kardon audio with Dolby Atmos. It will have storage options up to 1TB PCIe® 4.0 SSD and be memory configurable up to 32GB of 8448 MHz LPDDR5X RAM.

The company says the devices can deliver up to 18 hours of battery life.

One distinctive feature of the Vivobook S 15 is adaptive dimming, enabled by the ASUS AiSense IR camera. The PC will be able to detect when users look away, automatically dimming the screen.

Another feature, Adaptive Lock, automatically locks the laptop when the user moves away and unlocks it when they return.

The price of this PC starts from $1299 USD, Asus says.

Chinese manufacturer Lenovo has introduced a few laptops with the latest Qualcomm chipset, including the Yoga Slim 7x, a 12.9mm thick PC.

It will have a 14.5-inch display featuring a PureSight OLED touch panel with 1000 nits of peak brightness.

The device will have a Yoga coating, which the company says has longer-lasting anti-oil properties and improves typing feel and comfort.

The company says in its press release that the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7x will be available starting June 2024 with a base model price of $1,199.

Meanwhile, Dell has introduced five new AI PCS, which will come with either Qualcomm's X Elite or a slightly less powerful version called Qualcomm X Plus.

One of Dell’s most notable products is the Latitude 7455, the company's thinnest laptop. This device will feature a 14-inch QHD+ IPS touch display and quad speakers with AI noise reduction.

It will have Wi-Fi 7 connectivity, can reach a brightness of 400 nits, and offers up to 32GB of RAM and up to 1TB of storage.

According to Dell, the device will be available in a few months.
