Intelligent Processors for Intelligent PCs

Work at the speed of creativity with Intel® Core™ processors designed to support new AI capabilities.

What’s Possible with an Intelligent PC Powered by an Intelligent Processor?

AI is changing our expectations of what technology products can do for us. And now, it’s transforming the PC you know and rely on for some of your most important work and creative projects.

Intel has integrated AI capabilities right into the PC processor to meet the growing demand for modern software applications. Whether it’s existing applications getting smarter or entirely new tools, the latest intelligent PCs bring you dedicated performance for the deep neural networks that form the foundation of AI applications.

Building on the game-changing capabilities of our previous generation, 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors continue to break the boundaries of performance with incredible speed and intelligence. You’ll also get more immersive collaboration experiences, including neural noise suppression, background blur, video super-resolution, and the latest video codec—all in a thin and light laptop.

Professional-Level Creativity for All

From livestreaming enhancements to automatic photo and video editing, PCs with the latest Intel® Core™ processors deliver AI-enabled features that let anyone create like a professional.

Innovative PCs with Integrated AI Engines

AI creativity and productivity start with a powerful combination of hardware enhancements. Because not all applications behave the same way, Intel delivers a variety of AI-enhancing technologies, from supporting intense video and photo applications to always-on, low-power AI for applications running in the background.

Intel® Deep Learning Boost (Intel® DL Boost)

Get up to 2.5x AI performance compared to the previous-generation processor with Intel® Deep Learning Boost (Intel® DL Boost).1 This set of Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX2 and AVX-512) instructions accelerates AI applications on the PC. For example, CyberLink PhotoDirector uses Intel® DL Boost to maximize performance of features such as AI deblur, which allows users to quickly recover blurred photographs.

Intel® Iris® Xe Graphics

Intel’s newest graphics architecture revolutionizes modern creative workflows with AI acceleration and the latest AV1 media codec. A new display engine supports up to 8K HDR video in billions of colors. Boost your productivity with AI-enhanced Office 365, off-loaded virus scanning to graphics, and up to four simultaneous 4K displays.

Intel® Gaussian & Neural Accelerator (Intel® GNA)

When power and performance are critical, the Intel® GNA provides power-efficient, always-on support. Intel® GNA is designed to process AI speech and audio applications such as neural noise cancellation while simultaneously freeing up CPU resources for overall system performance and responsiveness.

Voice Assistant Preprocessing Engine

With Intel® Smart Sound Technology (Intel® SST), popular AI voice assistants can use the integrated audio digital signal processor (DSP) to listen for their “wake words” in an ultralow-power state, even while the PC is in Modern Standby. This means you can now take your favorite voice assistant services on the go.
