Intel And AMD Partners Up To Produce New Laptop Chip.
Intel and AMD have partnered up to produce a chip for laptops. The chip will pair up an Intel’s CPU with AMD’s GPU offering the best Laptop gaming performance. AMD and Intel are both leading CPU producing rivals but putting that side apart they decided to team up against Nvidia.
AMD said that they have designed a GPU that can be integrated into a multi-core CPU that, of course, is developed by Intel. “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.”
In a blog post Christopher Walker from Intel wrote, “The new product, which will be part of our 8th Gen Intel Core family, brings together our high-performing Intel Core H-series processor, second generation High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2) and a custom-to-Intel third-party discrete graphics chip from AMD’s Radeon Technologies Group* – all in a single processor package.”
This is the first product that will be using the EMIB technology. “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.”
