Intel Announces 13th Gen Raptor Lake Desktop CPUs

Intel Teases Windows 12 Refresh For 2024 With a Focus on AI

It seems Microsoft is gearing up to release Windows 12 in 2024. While Windows 12 rumours have been swirling around online for some time already, Intel has now confirmed the refresh in a subtle statement during the Citi Analyst Conference.

During the conference, Intel CFO David Zinsner discussed the current state of Windows and the expected refresh into Windows 12 sometime in the future. Zinsner says that 2024 will be a “pretty good year for client (PC users) because of the Windows refresh”.

Zinsner believes that while Windows 11 has been adopted by many users in the industry, the majority of the install base is quite old. He says that Windows 12 will be the catalyst for users to upgrade.

“We actually think 2024 is going to be a pretty good year for client, in particular because of the Windows refresh. We still think that the install base is pretty old, and does require a refresh. We think next year may be the start of that given the Windows catalyst.”

Intel is banking on Windows 12’s rumoured AI integration. The company has even included dedicated AI coprocessors in the new Meteor Lake mobile chips which are expected to release in December. The new Meteor Lake chip is Intel’s first CPU with different chipsets for each component. The added AI coprocessor will help accelerate AI features which are expected to arrive with Windows 12.

While Microsoft has yet to announce Windows 12, the company has made it clear it will arrive very soon. The operating system is expected to integrate AI-powered features into the experience. Microsoft has stated in the past that the company is “thinking about other places where AI should play a natural role in terms of the experience.”

Windows 11 recently received a new AI-powered Copilot feature. Microsoft also showcased some AI work on its new Surface Laptop Studio 2 such as eye tracking and background noise removal. However, these features aren’t exactly new. The AI coprocessors in the new Intel chipset lineup will definitely go a long way to enhance the rumoured AI focus in Windows 12.
