AMD intros AI chips to add presence in AI PC market

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has introduced a new series of semiconductors for artificial intelligence-enabled business laptops and desktops.

Nvidia also unveiled its own AI PC chips – the GeForce RTX SUPER desktop GPUs. Acer, ASUS, Dell Technologies, HP, Lenovo, and Samsung will use Nvidia’s AI chips.
