Intel 8th-Gen Core CPUs with Radeon RX Graphics (0 Comments) (link)
 Thursday, 11-January-2018  11:56:30 (GMT +10) - by Agg

Intel have launched their eighth-generation Core processors, and the interesting thing about these is that they contain built-in Radeon RX graphics.. that's right, graphics from their arch-rival AMD. To quote Tech Report: Intel's vision for its G-series CPUs, then, is to give OEMs a way to build a thin-and-light notebook that's closer in performance to bulkier systems with discrete graphics cards that typify the homes of current H-series CPUs. To do that, Intel G-series CPU packages join a high-performance, eighth-generation H-series CPU die with a semi-custom AMD Radeon graphics processor built for Intel called Radeon RX Vega M. Vega M is remarkable not only because it's integrated on-package with an Intel CPU, but also because it's the first midrange graphics implementation of the Vega architecture that we've seen so far.

Also from Intel this week, a new more-powerful NUC mini-PC, powered by the new CPU. Today, Intel launched the latest and most powerful Intel® NUC to date, based on the newly announced 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor with Radeon™ RX Vega M graphics. The new Intel NUC (formerly code-named Hades Canyon) brings this powerful new processor and graphics solution into an incredibly tiny 1.20-liter system. Great for VR enthusiasts and workload-heavy content creators, it will be Intel’s smallest premium VR-capable system in the market. Coverage on LegitReviews.
