Microsoft is planning "next-generation AI PCs" that will feature a neural processing unit (NPU), according to Windows Central. The devices will be available in Intel and Arm versions, the latter powered by a custom version of Qualcomm's new Snapdragon X-series chips. Codenamed "CADMUS," the PCs are designed for the upcoming version of Windows, Hudson Valley, due in 2024, and will "utilize many of the upcoming next-gen AI experiences Microsoft is building into the 2024 release of Windows." Microsoft claims that these PCs will be competitive with Apple Silicon in terms of battery life, performance, and security. The next Surface Pro and Surface Laptop, expected to ship next year, will be among the first CADMUS PCs to be released.
