As we expected from the first announcement made way back in November, Intel has finally announced its first 8th-gen Intel Core processor with Radeon RX Vega M Graphics at CES 2018 in Las Vegas.

What’s new?

So your conventional Coffee Lake CPUs are now expanded, and it now comes with a Radeon™ RX Vega M graphics inside with a 4GB dedicated HBM2, using Intel’s Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge (EMIB) technology.

EMIB serves as a high-speed intelligent information bridge between the GPU and HBM2 and lessens the usual silicon footprint to less than half that of discrete components implemented separately.

The goal of this partnership as Intel says, is to make thinner, lightweight and smaller devices that can compete with similar systems from three years ago at the very least. It also promises up to 40 percent bump in graphics performance compared with current mobile discrete graphics. For content creators, Intel claims that it is 42 percent faster on Adobe Premier Pro compared to a 3-year-old PC with discrete graphics.

The new chips from Intel with Radeon RX Vega M graphics inside will come in 2 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), also features an unlocked (overclockable) configuration

Lastly, new 2-in 1s-from Dell such as the XPS 15 and HP’s new Spectre laptops, as well as its new Intel NUC will launch with the new processor.

Our say: In line of that, we’re sure that more mobile computers and devices will come powered by the new chip are going to be released. And it will be more powerful than ever before, thanks to long-time rivals-become-partners to achieving this feat.
