Intel collaborates with AMD to create a new processor that will be using the Intel’s high-performing Intel Core-H Series processor and AMD’s second-generation High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2). The new processor will still be under Intel’s 8th generation Intel Core processor family featuring a discrete graphics processor from AMD’s Radeon Technologies Group.
Intel aims to fill the unique gap in the market by creating a one-of-a-kind solution with a new class product together with the team of experts at AMD’ Radeon Technologies Group. This semi-custom graphics chip will also be a testament of how competition and collaboration can work to deliver the best innovations to all consumers.
Processor Design and Features
At the heart of this new design is EMIB, a small intelligent bridge that allows heterogeneous silicon to quickly pass information in extremely close proximity. EMIB eliminates height impact as well as manufacturing and design complexities, enabling faster, more powerful and more efficient products in smaller sizes. This is the first consumer product that takes advantage of EMIB.
Additionally, this solution is the first mobile PC to use HBM2, which consumes much less power and takes up less space compared to traditional discrete graphics-based designs using dedicated graphics memory, like GDDR5 memory. 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 Intel Core processors brought capabilities like brilliant 4K content creation and consumption in amazing new designs.
