Microsoft unveiled a fresh iteration of its personal computers “crafted for” artificial intelligence (AI) on Monday, positioning itself for an advantage in the ongoing AI technology competition.

At an event in Redmond, Washington, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella introduced the new product, labeled “Copilot+” PCs. According to the company, this new line represents “the fastest, most intelligent Windows PCs ever built.”

Describing the innovation, Microsoft stated, “With powerful new silicon capable of an incredible 40+ TOPS (trillion operations per second), all-day battery life, and access to the most advanced AI models, Copilot+ PCs will enable you to do things you can’t on any other PC.”

One key feature of Copilot+ PCs is “Recall,” which logs all computer activity, facilitating virtual access to past actions or views on the device. Microsoft elaborated, stating that these PCs organize information similar to human cognition, based on unique relationships and associations, aiding users in recollecting forgotten details and swiftly finding desired information using familiar cues.

Scheduled for launch on June 18, the new laptops will be priced starting from $999 and will be available across various laptop brands such as Acer, ASUS, Dell, and HP.

This release follows Microsoft’s introduction of AI-powered Windows Copilot nearly a year ago, a tool designed to elucidate content for users through rewriting or summarization. Users also have the option to pose general queries to the Windows Copilot, with the ability to deactivate the service if preferred.

Furthermore, Microsoft announced plans to integrate OpenAI’s latest AI model, GPT-40, into these laptops, enhancing voice conversations for a “more natural” interaction experience.

Last week, OpenAI presented a demonstration of its “Sky” voice assistance, featured in the GPT-40 model, which attracted attention from actress Scarlett Johansson. Johansson remarked that the voice bore a striking resemblance to hers and revealed that OpenAI CEO Sam Altman had previously approached her regarding lending her voice to an AI assistant, an offer she declined.

Subsequently, Johansson engaged legal representation to request OpenAI to remove the “Sky” voice.
