Intel has announced a new series of 8th generation Core processors with AMD Radeon RX Vega M graphics. This is a collaboration between Intel’s CPU division and AMD’s graphics division.

This new series of processors are designed for use within integrated systems, such as AIOs, notebooks, and NUCs.

The processor consists of three parts, the Intel Core Kaby Lake-G series CPU, the AMD GPU and 4GB HBM2 VRAM. The GPU and VRAM communicate over something called Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge or EMIB, a high-speed interface designed specifically for this processor. The GPU and VRAM then communicate with the CPU over an x8 PCIe 3.0 interface within the processor. All of this is packed into a 1.7mm thick chip and that is less than the width of a credit card. This results in a motherboard design that can be much smaller as no longer the CPU, GPU, and VRAM need to be spread across.

This series includes five individual parts, including the i7-8809G, i7-8709G, i7-8706G, i7-8705G and the i5-8305G. The clock speeds vary but all are four core, eight thread parts with 8MB cache (except the i5, which has 6MB) and dual channel memory support up 2400MHz. The top two models (8809G and 8709G) have the faster Radeon RX Vega M GH graphics and the other three have the Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics. Apart from the discrete graphics, the processor still includes Intel HD Graphics 630. The top of the line 8809G part has fully unlocked CPU, GPU, and VRAM for overclocking. Only the 8706G supports Intel vPro technology.

Between the GH and GL graphics, the GH has 24 CU, 1536 stream processors, 1063MHz base clock, 1190MHz boost clock, 204.8GB/s memory bandwidth and 3.7 TFLOPs of performance while the GL has 20 CU, 1280 stream processors, 931MHz base clock, 1011MHz boost clock, 179.2GB/s memory bandwidth and 2.6 TFLOPs of performance. Both have 4GB HBM2 memory. They are meant to compete with NVIDIA 1060 Max-Q and 1050 graphics, respectively, and beat them in benchmark scores as well. The GH models have a TDP of 100W and the GL models have a TDP of 65W.

Intel also announced its most powerful and VR capable NUC in two variants, the NUC8i7HVK and NUC8i7HNK. The former is based on the i7-8809G model and the latter on i7-8705G model. Dell and HP have also announced new 2 in 1 notebooks based on these processors. We will see more products with this processor series later this year. It will definitely be interesting to see what the future will look like when two giants, Intel and AMD, collaborate to create something that pushes technology forward.

Tokyo Game Show Special Coverage

Tokyo Game Show 2018

41711344 10155988194573337 3113579199126831104 o - We are going to Tokyo Game Show 2018

Witness this year’s biggest gaming convention in Asia, the Tokyo Game Show 2018. This September 19, our team will fly to Tokyo, Japan, to be part to TGS 2018. Special thanks to our brand partners Huawei Mobile, PLDT Home, Smart Communications and Cherry Mobile for making this coverage possible.

If the line on the demo is any indication, Biohazard RE: 2 is one of the most popular games in TGS 2018. It’s one of those games that, regardless of the time of day, the queue to the booth just won’t go shorter than 60 minutes. We decided to hold off trying our luck on the demo, maybe tomorrow’s line would be shorter.

Demo or no demo, it’s still worth mentioning that the game, even in pictures is just a sight to behold. CAPCOM gave us access to screenshots of the game, and my goodness, what a fresh  coat of paint the game has over the 1998 Playstation and Nintendo 64 classic.

Check them out and drool.
