First joint Intel and AMD chip revealed

First joint Intel and AMD chip revealed

Intel has unveiled the 8th-generation Kaby Lake-G CPU, the result of the company's unprecedented collaboration with rival AMD. Instead that task falls to Intel, which has said it will have Day Zero game support just like Nvidia and AMD.

The U.S. -based chipmaker claimed that with the new chip, OEMs gain almost a half of a device's operating room as opposed to the use of discrete GPUs.

Intel and AMD might be fierce competitors for decades, but that hasn't stopped the two chip makers from teaming up to create a new mobile CPU with souped up integrated GPU that will soon be found in gaming and professional laptops from many major computer makers.

So basically, these new chips are paving the way for more compact laptops, desktops, and all-in-one PCs that have more graphical grunt than one would expect but don't hoover up power or cough out heat like more traditional dedicated GPUs. The firm also announced the first device to use its new chipset, the NUC. Compared to a more modern system with a Core i57-8550 and GeForce GTX 1050, Intel still claims a 1.4x overall performance advantage. All the leaked specifications have been confirmed, including the fact that it is fully overclockable. It will be joined by the non-overclockable Core i7-8709G which has the same base clock but a slightly lower 4.1GHz boost clock.

Thus far, Intel has five processors equipped with the Radeon RX Vega M GPU. The NUC8i7HVK, which features the 100W, overclockable i7-8809G, and the NUC8i7HNK, which has the 65W i7-8705G inside. Both are quad-core parts with Hyper-Threading.

If you look at the Core i5-8305G, the processor runs at a clock speed of 3.8GHz with a base clock frequency of 2.8GHz.

The AMD Radeon RX Vega M GL ships with 20 compute units with 1280 stream processors clocked at 931MHz.

AMD won't be handling driver support as Intel intends to take over all driver related releases.

The new Intel's Processor is designed for the real professional gamers. This includes up to three times 2,5,6 the frames per second on thinner, lighter and smaller devices compared with similar systems from three years ago and up to 40 percent 3,5,6 compared with current discrete graphics. We haven't really gotten to see this theory tested, however - AMD's Bulldozer-derived APUs were so weak on the CPU front, they killed any chance of a reasonable market test. They will not fit into sockets, which means there will be no standalone retail CPUs.

Intel also announced its most powerful and VR capable NUC in two variants, the NUC8i7HVK and NUC8i7HNK.

Shipping in late March, Intel says it will be the smallest VR capable system on the market. Both models also feature built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

All the software for the new chip will be managed by Intel with inputs from AMD, which means consumers will reap the benefits of AMD standby's like watt man and XTU and Intel's custom designed software.
