Microsoft introduces Copilot+ PCs

Copilot+ PCs

At its pre-build event, Microsoft introduced AI PCs called ‘Copilot+ PCs.’ These are a new kind of Windows PC that includes hardware with on-device generative AI capabilities.

Microsoft claims that Copilot+ PCs are the most powerful PCs ever and they will also be unbelievably thin and light.

The company will be adopting a partner-first approach for Copilot+ PCs. It will work with chipmakers and OEMs for making Copilot+ PCs. It means all major laptop makers including Dell, Lenovo, Asus, HP, Samsung, and HP will soon release Copilot+ PCs.

Copilot+ PCs will have incredible AI capabilities, thanks to a neural processor. Users will get several AI features along with Copilot which is also getting a GPT-4o upgrade.

Microsoft has already deeply integrated copilot in Windows. Now we are also seeing laptops with a dedicated Copilot key on the keyboard. For generative AI capabilities, Windows Copilot Runtime has more than 40 AI models as a part of Windows 11. The company is integrating these models into the OS to provide them access to the hardware they need. These models can work across any app.

Microsoft also says that every Copilot+ PC will be secure out of the box. The Microsoft Pluton Security processor will be enabled by default on these devices. The company has also added a number of new features to keep PCs secure.

Copilot+ PCs will also have specifications requirements to make sure they can handle the AI requirements. So, these laptops will include an integrated neural processor, at least 16GB of RAM, and at least 256GB of SSD storage.

Yusuf Mehdi, the Microsoft exec, claims that Copilot+ PCs will be 58% faster than MacBook Air M3 and will also offer “all day” battery life.

The first Copilot+ PC will be launched on June 18 and will pack a Qualcomm processor. Intel and AMD-powered Copilot+ PCs will also come later.
