The new Intel-AMD hybrid chips will be significantly more powerful than a CPU alone, and more efficient with power consumption than a traditional laptop with the CPU and GPU on separate platforms. Although things have been keep quiet, Intel has now listed the specs for its Core-G series with RX Vega M graphics.
The Intel Core i7-8709G is capable of running at a clock speed of 4.1GHz with a base clock frequency of 3.1GHz.
While this is the first laptop out of the blocks to rock the new Intel and AMD mashup chips, to make things awkward for consumers HP has a version with a Coffee Lake Intel Core i chip and a discrete Nvidia GeForce 150 graphics card.
Both models support up to 32GB of dual-channel DDR4-2400 SODIMM memory.
Packing Intel's new 8th-gen core i7 processor with Radeon RX Vega Graphics, the system comes in two versions, the NUC8i7HVK and the NUC8i7HNK.
Chipmaker Intel has propelled its new eighth Gen Intel Core processors with Radeon RX Vega M illustrations went for the fans group, which is developing exponentially with gaming, content creation and virtual and additionally blended reality.
Intel's solution to that is its new Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge or EMIB.
Intel has been teasing this processor line since late 2017, but it's finally here. They are meant to compete with NVIDIA 1060 Max-Q and 1050 graphics, respectively, and of course, beat them in benchmark scores. These will also end up mostly in SFFs like the 2-in-1s, thin and light notebooks, and mini PCs, like the newly announced Intel Hades Canyon NUC.
According to Forbes, Intel worked with AMD to build a semi-custom GPU, one that helps that significantly helps them reduce the size of the design and power consumption.
PCs have always been on the back burner at CES, but ARM-powered laptops could make them the surprise hit of the show this year because of two important features. The Core i5 model features four Hyper-Threaded cores operating at a 2.8GHz base frequency and accompanies 6MB of L3 cache.
Meanwhile, with 14.6 per cent market share, Samsung Electronics replaced chip maker giant Intel to become the top player in the global semiconductor industry in 2017, market research firm Gartner said. "I believe that we will probably see a response from Nvidia, but it will be hard for Nvidia to accomplish the size reductions and efficiency of having everything in one chip like Intel has successfully accomplished".
