Intel Unveils Bold Plan for 100 Million AI PCs by 2025

During MWC 2024, David Feng, Vice President of the Client Computing Group at Intel, announced the company’s ambitious plans to assist in the production of over 40 million AI PCs within this year, aiming to escalate this figure to 60 million by 2025. This initiative signifies Intel’s strategic move to propel the entry of over 100 million AI PCs into the market by 2025, leveraging its processor technology to enrich a wide array of sectors including large corporations, SMEs, educational institutions, government entities, and edge computing applications with an innovative computing experience.

Intel’s declaration at MWC 2024 also highlighted the integration of the new Intel vPro platform with Core Ultra processors, which is set to extend the AI PC usage experience further into enterprise applications. This advancement is anticipated to foster a new era of computing experience across diverse sectors through collaboration with partners such as Acer, ASUS, Dell, Dynabook, Fujitsu, HP, Lenovo, LG, Microsoft, NEC, Panasonic, Samsung, and VAIO. These partnerships, leveraging over 100 designs encompassing laptops, 2-in-1 laptops, desktops, and entry-level workstations powered by Core Ultra series processors, are expected to deepen the penetration of AI applications and enhance the AI PC product experience.

Moreover, Intel plans to broaden the scope of AI PC applications with forthcoming processor products codenamed Meteor Lake, Lunar Lake, and Arrow Lake, which are also anticipated to contribute to PC sales growth. The push for AI PCs has led to projections of a global PC shipment volume reaching 267 million units this year, marking a significant shift from the previous year.

The venture into the AI PC market is not exclusive to Intel; other processor manufacturers including AMD are incorporating numerous AI computing designs into their products. Additionally, companies like Qualcomm and MediaTek are actively advancing the AI Phone and AI PC product landscape, signaling a comprehensive shift towards integrating artificial intelligence into computing technologies.
