Also at Computex, Intel showed off a new AI dev kit for PCs. This kit packs an Intel Core CPU, Intel Integrated Graphics, and an Intel Movidius Myriad X VPU to accelerate low-power AI workloads:
Software, development tools, operating systems and hardware are all undergoing rapid changes to take advantage of deep learning technologies and other modern AI techniques. AI will also change the way people interact with and use their PCs, including huge leaps in productivity, dynamic performance enhancements, auto content editing and more.
Intel announced a collaboration with Microsoft* and Asus* to launch the world's first AI on PC Development Kit, delivering a brand-new laptop form factor featuring the latest AI software and hardware technologies to put developers at the cutting edge of AI application development.
Available starting July 2019, the dev kit contains a powerful combination of an Intel Core CPU and Intel® Integrated Graphics, and, for the first time, an Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ X VPU for high-performance, low-power AI workloads. The three hardware engines will run a diverse range of AI workloads to deliver a comprehensive breadth of raw AI capability for laptops today.
The AI on PC Development Kit will also include a suite of pre-installed software that will enable developers to go from idea to creation right out of the box, including the newest Windows ML* libraries, the cross-platform Intel OpenVINO™ toolkit, and all of the necessary supporting tools for end-to-end AI application development on PC.
