HP plans release of AI PCs in second half of 2024

HP CEO Enrique Lores has announced that the tech giant will release AI PCs in the second half of 2024.

During a call about the recent financial results, Enrique Lores shared the intention around AI PCs. These PCs have the right computing power to accelerate the use and development of AI models. HP will use Intel’s processors, among others, as well as those from other vendors.

Market development of AI PCs

The HP CEO expects that the arrival of AI PCs in general will boost the PC market again, although not yet immediately. According to him, users will switch to these types of PCs very gradually. In 2024 this will still be limited, from 2025 the presence of AI PCs will increase further and by 2026 it will be very strong.

No high Intel Meteor Lake expectations

The call also revealed the CEO’s thoughts on the Intel Meteor Lake processors that will be presented next month. Intel sees these processors as the core of the AI PC.

According to Enrique Lores, there is some truth in that, but according to him, these particular processors only offer “some AI capabilities” and not yet really the right power that this kind of PC really needs. He expects this processor power and associated AI capabilities more from the processors that will become available in the second half of 2024. Processors that therefore need not always come from Intel.

Who the possible alternative processor suppliers are for HP is not known. However, the CEO does indicate that when the Intel Meteor Lake processor is launched, HP will obviously introduce PCs with this type of processor on board.
