Intel launches its 8th Gen Processors

"Leading OEMs include Dell, HP and the Intel NUC are bringing product to market utilising this new processor". The packages are much smaller than previous offerings and use less power, enabling smaller devices that deliver the same performance as larger predecessors.

Intel has unveiled its new 8th-gen Core processors with Radeon RX Vega M graphics.

Intel and AMD are combining the former's fastest CPU, with AMD's fastest Radeon RX Vega M graphics and 4GB of dedicated high bandwidth memory using Intel's Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge (EMIB) technology. Intel is planning to release more innovations on the high-end performance notebook segment including the Intel Core H-series, Intel Optane memory for eighth-generation Intel Core-power mobile devices and more details on eighth-generation Intel Core vPro platform for businesses.

While I'm on the subject of TDP, it's important to note that this is total power for both the CPU and GPU aspects of the chips, and Intel has worked to make better use of the available power.

Intel launches its 8th Gen Processors

Intel and AMD, two companies that have been at each other's throats for decades now, made a decision to announce a partnership last November for a new powerful chip that will be found in gaming and professional PCs in the near future.

The 65W mobile processors can boost up to 4.1GHz, while the Radeon RX Vega M GL GPU has base/boost clocks of 931MHz and 1011MHz respectively.

Of course the useful scope of Intel's Core G-series goes beyond laptops, and today Intel has launched new NUCs to prove it. In fact, Intel says that the footprint for its three-pronged solution (CPU/GPU/HBM2) is 50 percent smaller than a traditional discrete setup, representing 1900mm (3in) in saved board space. These will be the Core i7-8706G, i7-8705G and i5-8305G and incorporate a 20 compute-unit version of the Vega. More importantly, Intel also shows slightly faster (1.07-1.13X) performance than a current generation GTX 1060 Max-Q 6GB laptop. In addition to these, this new processor will enable a gaming cloud solution brought on by Artesyn and Gamestream. But never fear: The G-series processors will continue to include Intel's HD 630 integrated graphics as well, in case you were anxious about that. It is believed that the new processor will help trigger the boom of small and lightweight gaming laptops. The HVK is the top end of the stack and features an unlocked 8 generation (Kaby Lake-R) Intel Core i7-8809G processor, which sports a 100W TDP and can reach a 4.2GHz Turbo frequency at stock settings.
