Currently, most of the mobile PCs of enthusiasts who prefer high-end terminals are equipped with Intel's 8th generation "Core H" processor and high-performance discrete graphics, so that the height of the terminal is 26 mm on average I have gone. On the other hand, the height of a thin notebook PC is about 11 mm on average, and you can see clearly how much space is required for a combination of Core H and discrete graphics. So Intel has successfully combined high performance processors with smaller form factor graphics by combining Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge (EMIB) technology with a new power supply framework.

Intel announced the 8th generation Core H processor with integrated discrete graphics made by AMD. The second generation high bandwidth memory (HBM 2) and custom GPU developed by AMD Radeon Technologies Group are integrated into a single processor package. The following image is a package image.

When comparing the combination of conventional Core H + discrete graphics (left) and Core H (right) with AMD custom GPU that was announced, it is quite obvious that you have succeeded in saving space considerably like this .

Details on the features of the new Core H equipped with AMD made custom GPU are described in the following movie.

When comparing the performance of a high spec notebook PC and a thin notebook PC, it is advantageous for high-spec terminals in terms of performance, thin type terminals for ease of portability.

It is an inconvenient high spec notebook PC for carrying, but from advanced image processing and 3D CG creation ... ....

I play PC games with high requirements ......

You can also enjoy VR content.

That's why the motherboard has a high-performance CPU and GPU, andGDDR 5Because it has a memory for GPU like.

Intel announced the new Core H processor that put together three high-performance CPUs, GPUs, and memories indispensable for such high-spec notebook PCs. How you realized it, expand the CPU package a little ... ...

It is equipped with "EMIB (Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge)" which is a silicon high-speed connector technology.

On top of this, memory for GPU and GPU ......


On the Core H processor, HBM 2 of the 2nd generation high bandwidth memory plays the role of memory for GPU.

Since GPU and HBM 2 are connected by EMIB, data can be exchanged at high speed, and it contributes greatly to space saving.

Compared with the conventional technology which separately occupied on the motherboard, it is obvious how compact it became.

I am succeeded in saving space of 1,900 square millimeters.

This makes it possible to adopt the new Core H processor for thin notebook PCs ....

You can achieve the same performance as a high-spec notebook PC with a thin notebook PC.

Therefore, creating content, games, VR etc can be enjoyed anytime anywhere.
