Intel has announced new details about its AI-focused Vision Processing Unit (VPU) that will make its debut in its upcoming Meteor Lake CPUs. The company plans to release the Meteor Lake processors by the end of the year. These new chips will be available for laptops first, but different versions of the design will also come to desktop PCs.
Meteor Lake – Client AI Ecosystem At Scale
The new VPU is much more efficient at handling AI-powered apps and tasks than CPUs or GPUs, allowing users to run AI workloads locally on their computers.
Intel is also bringing generative AI experiences at scale, with one such example being an open-source GIMP plug-in for Stable Diffusion, which demonstrated an AI-generated image based on a text prompt.
