Intel has launched its 8th Gen Intel Core processor with Radeon RX Vega M Graphics. The processor’s features and performance are optimised for gamers, content creators, and fans of virtual and mixed reality. Its small form factor is ideal for 2 in 1s, thin and light notebooks, and mini PCs.
The new processors offer space-savings and reduce power consumption, enabling OEMs to create innovative thin and light devices with more battery life.
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
The new processor 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”, claimed Intel.
Compared to many similar systems from three years ago which weigh nearly 7 pounds, last a mere four hours and are more than 32 mm thick, “the new processor enables enthusiast devices to be slimmed to under 17 mm and run up to eight hours on a single charge”.
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.
“Now, gamers can play the latest titles like “Vermintide” 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”, the Press release noted.
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.
In addition to Intel’s own compact NUC PCs, the new 8th Gen Intel Core processors will be used in new 2-in-1 laptops launched by Dell and HP. The processors will also enable a gaming cloud solution brought on by Artesyn and Gamestream.
