First joint Intel and AMD chip revealed

First joint Intel and AMD chip revealed

These new Radeon-powered Intel processors then are only supposed to cause Nvidia some concern around the low-end of the mobile GPU stack.

Intel has finally taken the wraps off of its Core CPUs with AMD Radeon graphics, and it's already putting the package to use.

The devices feature Intel Core i7 and Core i5 CPUs capable of clock speeds of up to 4.2GHz and 3.8GHz respectively.

The new NUC will come in two versions: NUC8i7HVK and NUC8i7HNK. More specifically, we noted that Intel and AMD had co-designed an Intel Core microprocessor with a custom AMD Radeon graphics core inside the processor package, aimed at bringing top-tier gaming to thin-and-light notebook PCs. One of the world's leading graphic processing hardware and used in both the Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Xbox One consoles, Intel has been working with AMD to integrate the Radeon RX Vegas graphics with its Intel 8th-generation Core processors, and the results are very interesting. The GH models have a TDP of 100W and the GL models have a TDP of 65W.

One of the most unexpected partnerships in the semiconductor industry was struck in November past year when the longtime rivals Intel and AMD joined hands.

The new CPU acquires some equipment advantages and uses less space and power.

Intel Officially Launches New 8th Gen Core Processors With AMD Radeon Graphics

The collaboration is created to help Intel and AMD compete with their biggest rival in the world of high-end laptops, which is Nvidia.

Partners have been waiting over the last quarter for a new chip from rivals Intel and AMD that helps enthusiast laptops become thinner, lighter and "deliver a premium experience".

The Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge on the chips is claimed to be the key to getting the CPU and GPU to play nice, as well as reduce the footprint of the silicon to one smaller than having a standard CPU paired with a discrete graphics card.

The chances of the i5 8305G, the HyperThreaded quad-core with 20 Vega CUs, appearing in a sleek sub-$1,000 laptop are pretty remote, but that's exactly where the current GTX 1050-based machines are sitting.

The product link provided points directly to the HP Spectre x360 15, with Intel Core i7 8705G processor. To begin with, the new laptops will be made available in the USA via Dell, HP and Lenovo followed by emerging countries such as India.

Intel might be receiving a lot of flak lately for the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities, but the chip maker is unfazed and continues moving forward against all odds.
