New Intel Design and Packaging Innovations Reduces Silicon Footprint by More Than 50%, Enable Real Time Power Sharing Across CPU and GPU for Optimal Performance
Intel and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) are teaming up to produce a laptop computer chip that uses an Intel processor and an AMD graphics unit. The partnership will pit the two companies against competitor Nvidia. The new chip will be made for laptops that are designed to be thin and portable, but still powerful enough for gamers who need a stronger option to play intensive games. It’ll be part of Intel’s eighth-generation Intel Core line and marks Intel and AMD’s first partnership since the 1980s.
The laptops built with the new chips won’t be competing with AMD’s Ryzen chips, which are also designed for ultra thin laptops and due out at the end of this year. AMD specified that these new Intel chips will be aimed at serious gamers, whereas Ryzen chips can run games but aren’t specifically designed for that purpose.
Intel says this is the first consumer product that uses the EMIB small intelligent bridge design, which allows information to be passed quickly in “extremely close proximity.” The bridge allows chips to be both smaller and more powerful. Intel introduces a new product in the 8th Gen Intel Core processor family that combines a high-performance CPU with discrete graphics and HBM2 for a thin, sleek design. It can be used in devices including notebooks, two-in-ones, and mini desktops.
“Our collaboration with Intel expands the installed base for AMD Radeon GPUs and brings to market a differentiated solution for high-performance graphics,” said Scott Herkelman, vice president and general manager, AMD Radeon Technologies Group. “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. 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.”
The company has previously investigated chips modeled after the human brain to build better hardware for AI uses. Nvidia is also working on hardware for AI applications.
This new addition to the 8th Gen Intel Core processor family builds on our strong portfolio of mobile and graphics solutions. Our 8th Gen and 7th Gen Core processors brought capabilities like brilliant 4K content creation and consumption in amazing new designs. And as the leading supplier of PC Graphics, media and display technologies, we deliver the visual experience to the majority of computers with our HD and UHD graphics. Now, we’re opening the door for thinner, lighter devices across notebooks, 2 in 1 s and mini desktops, while delivering incredible performance and graphics for enthusiasts.
