AMD, Intel Team Up To Take On Nvidia In Gaming Laptops

Intel introduces a new product in the 8th Gen Intel Core processor family that combines high-perform

The benefits of EMIB were clear, without the drawbacks of standard MCP design or the cost of interposers: it would also allow a design to go beyond the monolithic reticle limit of standard lithography processes. AMD has already seen a resurgence in 2017, stoking competition with its chief graphics rival with new Radeon Vega graphics cards that can compete with NVIDIA at the high-end. Intel has been a dominant player in the PC chip market, but in the graphics chip market, it has not seen much success.

The new product has been designed by Intel and is meant to power thin laptops that are powerful enough for serious gamers to use.

Not to forget, all these are located on a single CPU package which is why Intel believes that the new chip will be able to provide excellent computing and graphics performances on thin and light notebooks as well as mini desktop PCs. This allows information to pass more quickly in "extreme close proximity".

Using Intel's 8th generation Core processor and an AMD Radeon graphics processor, the duo are trying to "appeal to serious gamers", according to an AMD spokesperson. AMD have just confirmed they are working with Intel to create a new eighth generation premium mobile processor with Radeon graphics. EMIB eliminates height impact as well as manufacturing and design complexities, enabling faster, more powerful and more efficient products in smaller sizes. Intel's latest version of this tech, the Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge, or EMIB for short, will bring an Intel CPU and semi-custom (likely Polaris-based) Radeon GPU into the same package, alongside stacked HBM2 memory.

The response to the first three singles has been fairly, ahem, mixed so far. The full album will arrive on November 10.

There have been rumors about something like this for months, but they were either unconfirmed or denied, but now, with actual press releases from both companies, we know AMD and Intel have formed a partnership to combine strengths in the mobile sector.

"Together we are offering gamers and content creators the opportunity to have a thinner-and-lighter PC capable of delivering discrete performance-tier graphics experiences in AAA games and content creation applications", AMD president Scott Herkelman adds. As for Intel and AMD, the chip gives the two firms a potential leg up over chunkier laptops that pack NVIDIA discrete graphics. "This new semi-custom GPU puts the performance and capabilities of Radeon graphics into the hands of an expanded set of enthusiasts who want the best visual experience possible".

More information, including systems from major OEMs based on the technology, is expected in the first quarter of 2018.
