Over 60% PCs to be Artificial Intelligence PC by 2027: Report

More than 60 per cent of all personal computers sold by 2027 will be AI PCs, according to a forecast by the International Data Corporation.


According to the market intelligence firm, shipments of artificial intelligence (AI) PCs are projected to experience a surge, escalating from almost 50 million units in 2024 to over 167 million units by 2027.


Tom Mainelli, group vice president of Devices and Consumer Research said, "In 2024, we'll see AI PC shipments begin to ramp, and over the next few years, we expect the technology to move from niche to a majority."


At present, AI PCs come in three configurations subject to their tera operations per second performance: hardware-enables PCs, next-gen PCs, and advanced AI PCs.


IDC said it expects silicon vendors to offer Advanced AI PCs in the future, though none of them do it right now.  


While shipments of hardware-enabled AI PCs are expected to increase rapidly over the next two years, next-generation AI PCs are predicted to become the market leaders by the end of the forecast period.


Although many of these AI PCs will be purchased by commercial buyers, consumers can also anticipate exciting developments in PC gaming and digital content creation as the AI PC era unfolds, it said.

"As we enter a new year, the hype around generative AI has reached a fever pitch, and the PC industry is running fast to capitalize on the expected benefits of bringing AI capabilities down from the cloud to the client," Mainelli said.
