Intel is discontinuing its Kaby Lake-G processors with AMD's Radeon RX Vega graphics infused into the package, marking the end of what had been an unlikely partnership. Vendors can still order Kaby Lake-G parts and will still be able to do so until July 31, 2020, after which Intel will no longer ship additional units. Kaby Lake-G entered the scene in November 2017. The surprise collaboration saw two rivals come together to build what had looked like a promising product line combining Intel's 8th generation Core processors with AMD's Radeon RX Vega graphics and HBM2 memory on a single, multi-chip module package (MCM). At the time, Intel talked about Kaby Lake-G enabling thinner and lighter notebook,... Read more...
Back in March, we reviewed Dell's XPS 15 2-in-1 convertible, which we raved about for its excellent overall performance (including gaming), relatively thin and lightweight frame, and its premium build quality. We're now learning that the convertible could become even more enticing thanks to an incoming 32GB memory option. The XPS 15 2-in-1 currently can be configured with either 8GB or 16GB of dual-channel DDR4-2400 memory that is soldered directly onto the motherboard. For those looking for a 32GB option, Dell hasn't been able to deliver for customers as it was awaiting an adequate supply of memory chips. However, that will change this fall according to a tweet from Dell VP Frank Azor:... Read more...
We just saw yesterday that Acer is trying to counter Google's Pixelbook with its own premium Chromebook 13 and Chromebook Spin 13. Both Acer Chromebooks are available with 8th generation Intel Core processors, and feature aluminum chassis designs.  Now, word on the street is that Google is working on even more high-end Chromebooks that will use Intel's Kaby Lake-G processors (current Pixelbooks uses 7th generation Intel processors). For those not in the know, Kaby Lake-G processors incorporate on-package AMD Radeon Vega GPUs for increased graphics prowess. A development board codenamed "Kidd" with the hybrid chip has been spotted in the Chromium Git. Does that mean... Read more...
At CES earlier this year, Dell strutted out a few new products, including its XPS 15 2-in-1 with a 360-degree hinge. It is the first XPS 15 to adopt the convertible 2-in-1 form factor, providing customers with flexible use case scenarios, like folding the display all the way back onto itself to become a tablet, or propping it up in tent mode as a kitchen counter companion. While not groundbreaking in 2018, it's a welcome upgrade to one of the more desirable and premium laptops on the market. What is groundbreaking, however, is what lies inside this laptop in terms of processing engines. Dell's new 15-inch convertible wields Intel's 8th generation Kaby Lake G processors with Radeon RX Vega graphics.... Read more...
Intel first announced its Hades Canon NUC back at CES, and it packs quite a lot of power into a pint-sized package. While Intel NUCs don't generally get as much attention as they deserve, Hades Canyon is partially special given that it is powered by Intel's latest 8th generation Kaby Lake-G processors with on-package Radeon RX Vega M GPUs. Korean hardware site Playwares has posted the first benchmarks of Hades Canyon, which in this case is powered by a Core i7-8809G processor. This particular chip comes integrated with the most powerful version of AMD's Radeon RX Vega M, the "GH" SKU. With that in mind, take a look at the benchmarks below to get a feel for what kind of gaming performance to expect.... Read more...
Intel and AMD rocked the tech industry to its core late last year, when the pair announced that forthcoming Intel 8th Gen Core processors would feature integrated Radeon graphics. We had heard rumors of the two rivals working together in such a fashion for well over a year, but it seemed like such a far-fetched idea that we didn't lend much credence to the potential. Well, here we are at CES 2018, and Intel is giving us more details on its 8th generation Intel Core processors with integrated Radeon RX Vega M graphics. The mashup of an Intel processor with an AMD GPU is made possible by the Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge (EMIB), which provides a high-speed data interconnect between... Read more...
There has been a lot of activity on the AMD-Intel front over the past week. Earlier this week, out of nowhere, Intel announced that it has been working together with AMD on its upcoming Kaby Lake-G family of processors, which incorporated Radeon graphics in a multi-chip module (MCM). On Wednesday, the first benchmarks for the Core i7-8705G and Core i7-8809G leaked to the internet. Today, we're getting a real world look at the Kaby Lake-G MCM instead of fancy computer renders/press shots. As you can see, the MCM is absolutely massive compared to most modern processors, and it looks like it's currently installed on a test board. The size, however, is to be expected given that the MCM not only includes... Read more...
Intel dropped a bombshell on the tech industry yesterday when it announced an upcoming Core processor family that will incorporate AMD Radeon graphics on-package. Not even 24 hours after that original announcement, we're already getting leaked information with regards to the specs of these processors and benchmark figures. According to a leaked report, there are at least two known SKUs at this point: the Core i7-8705G (694E) and Core i7-8809G (694C). The Radeon GPU featured on the multi-chip module (MCM) reportedly features 24 compute units and a total of 1536 stream processors. The GPU in the Core i7-8705G is running at 1000MHz, while that clock rises to 1,190MHz on the Core i7-8809G. Though... Read more...
Intel’s Kaby Lake family is set to expand again, with the Kaby Lake-G series making an appearance via leaked documentation. Kaby Lake-G will retain a 14nm manufacturing process and will reportedly have a package size of 58.5mm x 31mm. Right off the bat, we can see that this is a marked increase in size compared to the desktop oriented Kaby Lake-S (37.5mm2) and the mobile Kaby Lake-H (42mm x 28mm). According to leaked slides, there will reportedly be 65W and 100W SKUs, each with a quad-core configuration and a separate dedicated GPU on the package that connects via PCI x8. The TDP for both of the Kaby Lake-G processor SKUs are well above the 45W rating of Kaby Lake-H, which makes us wonder what’s... Read more...
