Intel has launched the 8th Gen Intel Core processor with Radeon RX Vega M Graphics – targeting makers of 2 in 1s, thin and light notebooks, and mini PCs.
Dell and HP are launching their new thin and lightweight 2 in 1s – powered by Intel’s 8th Gen Intel Core processor with Radeon RX Vega M Graphics.
Intel is offering the 8th Gen Intel Core processor in two configurations:
8th Gen Intel Core processor with Radeon RX Vega M GL Graphics (65W total package power)
8th Gen Intel Core processor with Radeon RX Vega M GH Graphics (100W total package power), which features an unlocked configuration
Intel first shared initial details about this new addition to the 8th Gen Intel Core processor family in early November.
8th Gen Intel Core processor features Intel quad-core CPU, Radeon RX Vega M graphics and 4GB of dedicated HBM2 using Intel’s Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge (EMIB) technology. EMIB acts as a high-speed intelligent information bridge between the GPU and HBM2 and reduces the usual silicon footprint to less than half that of discrete components implemented separately.
OEMs have more freedom and flexibility to create innovative thin and light devices. Many 3-year-old systems weigh nearly 7 pounds, last four hours and are more than 32 mm thick.
Companies such as Dell and HP are trying to bring out devices which are under 17 mm and can run up to eight hours on a single charge.
The new 8th Gen Intel Core processor with Radeon RX Vega M graphics delivers up to 3 times the frames per second on thinner, lighter and smaller devices compared with similar systems from three years ago and up to 40 percent compared with current discrete graphics.
Compared with 3-year-old PC with discrete graphics, content creation with Adobe Premier Pro is 42 percent faster.
The new 8th Gen Intel Core processor will enable a gaming cloud solution brought on by Artesyn and Gamestream.
