The most awaited range of Galaxy Books were launched on 28 April 2021 after a bunch of leaks and rumors. These new laptops come packed with top-notch software and hardware goodies of Samsung, while Intel is responsible for powering the laptops with its latest 11th-gen Intel Core processors.
However, if we analyze the Galaxy Unpacked event of the latest books, we found that there is more to be unveiled from Samsung and Intel as they disclosed their collaborative work on new projects for the future.
With the launch of Galaxy Books, Intel and Samsung open a new chapter on their alliance delivering a new line of co-engineered PCs. Meanwhile, to continue this determination of providing mobility, connectivity, and performance in the best way possible, both firms have some new plans related to semiconductors.
During the event, Intel said it will collaborate with Samsung on a new Intel chip microarchitecture that uses multiple types of XPU cores. In a simplified way, it refers to Intel’s heterogeneous compute portfolio of silicon that ranges from CPUs (Central processing unit) and GPUs (Graphics processing unit) to FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays) and other kinds of accelerators.
However, the company did not provide any further information on the new chip microarchitecture. But, it is speculated that this new process technology is for future Samsung designs or can be a part of the company’s existing product roadmap for more widespread customers.
The Intel-Samsung collaboration will also focus on unique PC designs with Galaxy DNA including AI to enhance computing skills. In addition, the two companies will work to improve the way people work and share files across different kinds of devices.
Besides, the new Samsung Galaxy books including Galaxy Book Pro and Pro 360, are part of the Intel Evo program. Therefore, the future chipset innovations will showcase something never seen before in the PC industry. But we have to wait for a while because these types of complex technical works take time to get fully usable for normal consumers and tech enthusiasts.
