Intel has launched the 8th Gen Intel Core processor with Radeon RX Vega M Graphics. The firm said it is packed with features and performance crafted for gamers, content creators and fans of virtual and mixed reality, and expands the company’s portfolio thanks to its optimisation for small form factors like 2-in-1s, thin and light notebooks, and mini PCs.
The devices launching with this processor include the 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) and 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. 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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
