HP Spectre x360 15 with Intel Core i7 8705G SoC launched

Intel gets its game on with Radeon RX Vega M VR NUC

Last year, Intel and AMD made its rumored collaboration official, with Intel announcing that the upcoming Core-G series processors would be paired with graphics from AMD. The chipset is integrated with AMD Radeon RX Vega M GH graphics with Intel HD graphics 630. It is also capable of powering up a whopping 9 displays at once and comes with 4 cores, 8 threads clocked at 4.1GHz while the GPU has 20 compute units with a base clock of 932MHz and boost clock of 1011MHz.

While the first systems to run with this include HP and Dell, you have to wonder if Apple's next-gen slim MacBook will take advantage of this new combined CPU and Graphics board later this year.

The new Intel NUC (formerly code-named Hades Canyon) brings this powerful new processor and graphics solution into an incredibly tiny 1.20-liter system. Hot on the heels of Intel's disclosure of the inner workings of G-series Core processors, HP has announced the Spectre x360 15, an upcoming notebook featuring the new chips. One has a Radeon RX Vega M GL, which only has 65 W TDP and powers the NUC8i7HNK. Intel says that the processors are at par with Nvidia's discrete graphics cards for gaming laptops. The CPU unites the Intel quad-center CPU, Radeon RX Vega M illustrations and 4GB of committed HBM2 utilizing Intel's new Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge (EMIB) innovation. They are meant to compete with NVIDIA 1060 Max-Q and 1050 graphics, respectively, and of course, beat them in benchmark scores.

The unexpected-yet-welcome pairing of Intel processors and AMD GPUs into one package seems poised to revolutionize what consumers can expect from thin-and-light notebooks. Further with the eight lanes of PCI Express Gen 3 interconnection between CPU and the GPU, the HBM2 will consume up to 50 percent less power compared to GDDR5 memory chips. They'll be available on March 18 and will retail for $1370.

First joint Intel and AMD chip revealed
Will Apple's next MacBook take advantage of Intel's new 8th Gen CPU + AMD Radeon Vega Graphics Combo later this year?

At the budget end of the spectrum is the Core i5-8305G.

A heavy-hitter in the chip market like Intel throwing its weight behind VR could help add legitimacy to the technology, especially in the enterprise.

Whatever the reality, it's a mighty fine high-wire act Intel are going to have to perform with their Vega M G-series CPUs. "I believe that we will probably see a response from Nvidia, but it will be hard for Nvidia to accomplish the size reductions and efficiency of having everything in one chip like Intel has successfully accomplished".
