Samsung’s new Galaxy Book4 Edge laptop is a trifecta of next-generation AI power

Samsung announces the “next generation of AI PCs” with the launch of the new Galaxy Book4 Edge. First unveiled at Microsoft’s AI Era event, the laptop is a unique combination of hardware and software from three of the world’s largest technology companies, with artificial intelligence at its core.

Inside it houses the Qualcomm Snapdragon X Elite, a chipset that the developer claims is twice as fast as its old x86 hardware. Much of its speed is thanks to the laptop’s NPU (neural processing unit), which promises up to 45 TOPS (trillion operations per second) of processing power. NPUs, if you’re not familiar, are special processors that use AI to further improve a computer’s performance.
