Rivals AMD, Intel partner to take on Nvidia

Gaming gear

Citing a person familiar with the matter, The Wall Street Journal reported that later Monday Intel and AMD are expected to announce a notebook computer semiconductor that combines a processor from Intel with a graphics chip from AMD.

Size comparison between a standard implementation of discrete GPU and CPU on a laptop against the upcoming 8th Gen Intel Core processor with semi-custom AMD Radeon chip and HBM2 memory.

"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, in a statement.

"In close collaboration, we designed a new semi-custom graphics chip, which means this is also a great example of how we can compete and work together, ultimately delivering innovation that is good for consumers", Intel vice president Christopher Walker wrote in an online post announcing the partnership. One of them is what impact this will have on Intel's own integrated graphics, along with AMD's mobile APUs. New products and systems based upon these Intel CPU / AMD GPU / HBM2 packing SoCs will arrive in Q1 2018.

The silicon will additionally feature a power sharing framework that is tailor-made to connect the processor, discrete graphics chip and dedicated graphics memory.




Remember when we said an Intel chip with AMD graphics inside was just wishful thinking?

This chip will power a new breed of portable notebooks that can deliver discrete performance-tier graphics experiences in AAA games. We have some HUGE news for you in the computing world and it is sure to rock long-standing factions that have stood behind Intel and AMD processors to the very "Core". Most thin and light laptops only have a CPU, as they can handle basic graphics pretty well, but GPUs are required for more power-hungry tasks, like gaming or video editing. Intel was up 1 percent, while Nvidia was down 0.5 percent. This allows for real-time monitoring of temperature, power, and performance - yet again, not unlike AMD's Infinity Fabric.

Since AMD's Lisa Su really likes the semi-custom business, the fact that Intel calls this solution a semi-custom GPU, speaks for itself. Having all this built into the processor frees up space for other components inside a laptop, so device manufacturers can squeeze in things like larger batteries or more optimal fan designs.

The new product will be part of the 8th-generation Intel Core processor family.
