The Galaxy AI features were the primary selling point of the Galaxy S24 series, and the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is better suited for the AI. 

That said, old Samsung devices, like the Galaxy S23 series, can also run these AI features after receiving the One UI 6.1 update, which will start rolling out in late March.
