Intel Leaks More Details on Core i7 Chip with Radeon Graphics
« on: January 02, 2018, 08:51:34 PM »
Intel and AMD have teamed up on a CPU that has integrated Radeon graphics - much like the AMD Ryzen CPU. It's odd that AMD agreed to join in on the deal, but I guess Intel knows that they can't compete and are wishing they'd be making the money that NVIDIA makes with discreet GPUs on laptops and portable devices. The graphics chips are touted as Radeon RX Vega M GH and it looks like it could be a good year for both Intel on the CPU front and AMD on the GPU front.

   As far as the technical specs, ExtremeTech speculates that the new chip will offer 204GB/s memory bandwidth, which put it on par with an RX 470 GPU. It also said the suspected 1,536 GPU cores would put it at slightly below $200+ mid-range GPUs, and when coupled with the Kaby Lake CPU and support for DDR4-2400 memory, the combo chip should be able to handle most gaming workloads, especially if the chip is able to be overclocked to 4.1GHz as rumored.Source: Neowin
