It?s Dogs and Cats Living Together! Intel has Radeon Vega Graphics

Hardware News - forums.pureoverclock.com
I’ve checked my calendar as many times as I possibly can and I’m pretty sure we have 3 months to go before April hits. The other possible explanation is that we are the alternate reality, because I can’t figure out the real reason between AMD and Intel working together on anything. In fact, the real reality must be the one where they are still bitter rivals and we exist outside of that. On the flip side, Intel is using Vega graphics in their latest release and this is really great news. Intel’s new 8th gen processors, geared towards mobility, are adding the Vega graphics core with HBM2 memory. The huge benefit from this is saving space and power consumption, all while increasing computing and gaming performance. However, there’s another big reason why this is such big news. Nvidia may dominate the GPU market, but something that’s easy to forget is how many gamers use integrated graphics to play titles on a laptop. This could begin changing how AMD performs in gaming since developers may begin taking the Red side of things a lot more seriously. Forums have stated that AMD could perform much better based on their hardware level, but poor optimization hurts that. If Vega starts taking large market shares as an integrated graphic product, we may see a lot more attention given to AMD when games are developed. This merger is great news for a competitive market, but only time will tell on if we see some significant performance improvements as a result. Sure, Intel is getting a major boost on the mobile performance because that’s what this platform is designed for. On the other hand, if AMD hardware is just that inferior to Nvidia’s, then no amount of driver and development optimization will change that. My personal opinion is that we’ll see some reasonable increases in AMD’s future performance with new game titles, maybe even as much as 15%, but Nvidia isn’t losing their performance crown anytime soon. Check out the full details from Intel’s press release below! New 8th Gen Intel Core Processors with Radeon RX Vega M Graphics Offer 3x Boost in Frames per Second in Devices as Thin as 17 mm » Click for full image Intel Corporation is introducing the 8th Gen Intel Core processor with Radeon RX Vega M Graphics in January 2018. It is packed with features and performance crafted for gamers, content creators and fans of virtual and mixed reality. (Credit: Walden Kirsch/Intel Corporation) Today, Intel is launching a first-of-its kind processor: the 8th Gen Intel® Core? processor with Radeon? RX Vega M Graphics. Packed with features and performance crafted for gamers, content creators and fans of virtual and mixed reality, it expands Intel?s portfolio thanks to its optimization for small form factors like 2 in 1s, thin and light notebooks, and mini PCs. More: 8th Gen Intel Core with Radeon RX Vega M Graphics (Product Overview) | 8th Gen Intel Core (Press Kit) | 2018 CES (Press Kit) Among the devices launching with this processor: new thin and lightweight 2 in 1s from Dell* and HP* as well as the most powerful NUC Intel has ever introduced. The new 8th Gen Intel Core processor will come 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 Setting the Stage for Continued Innovation Intel first shared initial details about this new addition to the 8th Gen Intel Core processor family in early November. It brings together the 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. With this space savings, OEMs have more freedom and flexibility to create innovative thin and light devices. For example, many 3-year-old systems weigh nearly 7 pounds, last a mere four hours and are more than 32 mm thick. With this new processor, enthusiast devices are slimmed to under 17 mm and can run up to eight hours1,5,6 on a single charge, while still delivering next-level performance. This, combined with the new real-time power sharing framework and software drivers, is a prime example of hardware and software innovations intersecting to create new possibilities. A Processor for Gamers, Content Creators and Other Enthusiasts The new 8th Gen Intel Core processor with Radeon? RX Vega M graphics delivers a top-of-the-line experience to gamers and VR enthusiasts. This includes up to three times2,5,6 the frames per second on thinner, lighter and smaller devices compared with similar systems from three years ago and up to 40 percent3,5,6 compared with current discrete graphics. Now, gamers can play the latest titles like ?Vermintide* 2? in high resolution on the go or in their living room with smooth motion and vivid colors, all as part of a truly immersive gaming experience. Content creators can also do more with this new processor, whether it?s creating 3D images from scratch, editing videos seamlessly at home or on the go, or using the most popular creative applications. Compared with a 3-year-old PC with discrete graphics, content creation with Adobe Premier Pro* is 42 percent faster.4,5,6 Imagine the combined flexibility and performance enabled with this new processor for content creators in the growing 2 in 1 form factors for PCs. With the performance and graphics capability to run everything from Windows* Mixed Reality headsets to Oculus*, consumers have the options of which reality fits them best ? whether they want to watch live sports and movies, explore famous landmarks or play VR games ? all on a PC that is sleek, thin and smaller than they expect. 8th Gen Momentum Continues In addition to the Intel NUC and new Dell and HP devices, this new 8th Gen Intel Core processor will enable a gaming cloud solution brought on by Artesyn* and Gamestream*. But this is only the start of what?s coming with the 8th Gen Intel Core product portfolio this year. Expect to see more from Intel on the high-end performance notebook segment, the Intel Core H-series, Intel® Optane? memory coming to 8th Gen Intel Core mobile devices for the first time and more details on 8th Gen Intel® Core? vPro? platform for businesses. A variety of new 8th Gen Intel Core devices will be on display at Intel?s CES booth, #100048 in Central Hall South at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
