Intel on Tuesday unveiled its new 9th Gen Intel Core mobile H-series processors designed for gamers and creators who want to push their experience to the next level.

Laptops powered by the 9th Gen Intel Core mobile processors would launch from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) including Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo and MSI, starting April 23, as they introduce the most compelling laptops for gaming and content creation.

“Our new 9th Gen platform is designed to delight gamers, creators and performance users by giving them more of what they want.

We are bringing desktop-caliber performance with up to 5 Ghz and 8 cores in a range of thinner systems and new level of connectivity with Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) so users can game or create where they want,” Fredrik Hamberger, General Manager, Premium and Gaming Laptop Segments, Intel, said in a statement.

At the top of the stack is the 9th Gen Intel Core i9-9980HK processor — the first Core i9 mobile chip with up to 5 GHz2 and “Thermal Velocity Boost”, 8 cores and 16 threads, and support for 16MB of Intel Smart Cache.

The full range of processors include Intel Core i5, i7 and the unlocked Intel Core i9-9980HK for higher performance.

US Chipmaker Intel Eyes AI on ‘Edge Computing’

It is designed to accelerate AI tasks, particularly ones like image processing, delivering performance up to six times the power efficiency of existing processors

US chipmaker Intel Corp. has said that it will focus on “edge computing” that could hold the key to the success of artificial intelligence (AI) in the future.

Edge computing refers to the practice of storing data on computers located near cell towers and other network equipment to improve network response times. It is different from today’s Cloud-based system, where information is sent to a distant data centre, Yonhap news agency reported on Wednesday.

“Forty-three per cent of AI tasks will be handled by edge computing in 2023,” Kwon Myung-sook, CEO of Intel Korea, said in a statement during a forum in Seoul.

“AI devices empowered with edge function will jump 15-fold.”

The expansion of computing at the edge is an important growth opportunity for the chip giant — an estimated $65 billion market by 2023, Intel said.

More AI is being incorporated into edge devices, from Internet of Things (IoT) devices to smartphones, as AI algorithms improve, according to the company.

“Innovation in edge computing has become necessary where data is most produced,” Kwon said. “It is why Intel is preparing a platform solution that can cover both hardware and software.”

Intel said AI will support and provide new services in eight key industries, including smart cities, robots and gaming.
