About the interconnect technology which realized AMD Radeon built-in Intel CPU "Core Mobile Processor with Radeon RX Vega M Graphics" can be understood by watching the following movie.
New Intel Core Processor Combines High-Performance CPU with Discrete Graphics - YouTube
A high-spec gaming notebook PC has a discrete GPU (dGPU) that demonstrates powerful GPU performance, but the dGPU needed a large space on the motherboard.
With "Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridege (EMD)" developed by Intel, it became possible to connect the CPU and dGPU at a shorter distance and at a higher speed.
For Radeon-equipped Core processors, we have succeeded in space saving by integrating Radeon GPU and high-speed HBM 2 (High Bandwidth Memory 2) for GPU into one package on Intel Core processor.
And, the EMD interconnect realizes high speed.
With the advent of Embedded Multi - Die Interconnect Bridege, it becomes possible to store powerful graphic performance that could only be realized by large notebook PCs in ultra - thin enclosures such as 2 in 1 and tablet PCs.
In other words, 3D games and VR contents can be used under mobile conditions.
Of course, you can also say "Replace desktop PC or high-spec notebook PC with 2 in 1 terminal".
Intel has developed the AMD Radeon graphics embedded CPU using the EMD interconnect "Core Mobile Processor with Radeon RX Vega M Graphics" (code name: Karby Lake-G) series as "Core i 7 - 8809 G"Core i 7 - 8709 G"Core i 7 - 8706 G"Core i 7 - 8705 G"Core i 5 - 8305 GWe released five types of CPUs. Both are 4 core / 8 thread high performance mobile CPUs, but AMD Radeon's dGPU has 24 Compute Units (CU) and 1536 Streaming Processor (SP) and it has 4 GB of base clock 1063 MHz / boost clock 1190 MHz High model with HBM 2 of "RX Vega M GH", A standard model with 20 CUs, 1280 SPs and a base clock 931 MHz / boost clock 1011 MHz"RX Vega M GLThere are two types.
The Core Mobile Processor with Radeon RX Vega M Graphics realizes an unprecedented high performance compared with a machine combining Intel Core i7-4720HQ and NVIDIA GTX 960M, which was adopted in a high-end gaming PC three years ago.
Compared to the current mobile CPU "Intel Core i7-8850U" combined with NVIDIA's GTX 1050, even the standard GPU RX Vega M GL can earn a frame rate of 40% depending on the game. Core Mobile Processor with Radeon RX Vega M Graphics can demonstrate GPU performance beyond the full size NVIDIA lower graphics board.
In addition, NVIDIAMax-Q technologyIntel is appealing that it exceeds the gaming performance slightly as compared with the GTX 1060 loaded machine adopting GTX 1060. In addition, RX Vega M GH of the upper GPU is unlocked for both CPU and GPU and overclocking is possible.
While Max - Q exerts high graphics by controlling the GPU not only on the GPU side but also on the notebook PC chassis including cooling mechanisms such as fans, the Core Mobile Processor With Radeon RX Vega M Graphics the cooling mechanism seems to be simpler.
For Radeon RX Vega graphics, it is possible to utilize the Radeon ReLive function that supports 4K / 60fps encoding / decoding. In addition, since Intel HD graphics (iGPU) "Intel HD Graphics 630" is not invalidated, high-speed encoding by QSV (Quick Sync Video) can also be used.
Although Core Mobile Processor with Radeon RX Vega M Graphics can give 2in1 high performance graphic performance, Intel has already decided to adopt it for small desktop PC "NUC".New NUC "NUC 8i 7 HVK" "NUC 8 i 7 HNK"Has been announced.
The size is 221 mm × 142 mm × 39 mm, and it appeals that "Performance of a huge desktop PC to a palm size." Two DDR 4 - 2400 SO - DIMM slots (up to 32 GB) and M.2 slot × 2 are installed.
SDXC card slot at front, 2 × USB 3.0 ports, HDMI port, USB 3.1 Type-C port is installed.
The rear is equipped with thunderbolt 3 × 2 compatible with 40 Gbps, Mini DisplayPort and Type-C type DisplayPort 1.2, gigabit LAN × 2, etc. It is configured so that it can fully correspond to VR headset such as Oculus Rift.
High end NUC enters familiar skull mark. "NUC 8i 7 HVK" equipped with Core i 7 - 8809 G will be available for $ 999 (about 110,000 yen), "NUC 8 i 7 HNK" equipped with Core i 7 - 8705 G will be released for $ 799 (about 90,000 yen) in the spring of 2018.
A new model equipped with "Core Mobile Processor with Radeon RX Vega M Graphics" is announced in HP notebook PC "Specter 15 X 360". Core i7-8705G, 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels) model equipped with 15-inch touch LCD can continuously drive up to 12 hours. Vulnerability included in processor "Specter"Specter 15 X 360 is the same name as Specter 15 X 360, but it seems that attention will be drawn to how much performance the" Core Mobile Processor with Radeon RX Vega M Graphics "will be with vulnerability handling software.
