Intel and AMD have teamed up to create the best integrated graphics for PC
As we all know, over the years the corporation AMD and Intel have been quite serious contenders in the field of microprocessors for desktop computers. But when it comes to processors for laptops, there is always dominated the Intel, and AMD in this sector has performed quite modest. And here comes to mind is a saying "the enemy of my enemy - my friend", because the only way to explain the association between the two companies against the common enemy - the NVIDIA, in an attempt to create the best solution for an integrated laptop graphics.
AMD Intel offered use of new processors Core-i7 Radeon graphics technology, as well as integrated into the CPU HBM2 format memory (memory with increased data throughput). At the output we get a powerful CPU from Intel, high-quality, integrated video system from AMD, as well as fast memory, integrated on the same chip. This design called EMIB (Embedded Multi-die Interconnect Bridge), and it provides an incredibly fast transfer of digital signals over short distances between all the components of the processor. The advantages of this technology are undeniable. I think many would agree that the integrated graphics from Intel left much to be desired in recent years. A new generation processor will not only provide better graphics component of games and applications, but also ideal for very compact notebooks and ultrabooks. After separate video card they will simply not needed. If you believe the experts Digital Foundry, the future video system will include 24 units of computers and 1536 stream processors clocked at 1 to 1, 1 GHz. This will ensure that your laptop graphics power of 3, 3 teraflops, which, for a moment, puts the built-in GPU on a par with NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti.
While Intel and AMD are in no hurry to reveal the world all of its trump cards, but one thing becomes clear now: if this tandem really show their best side, the NVIDIA engineers will have a very hard time on the laptop market. We will closely follow the development of the story and, as soon as the new parts, be sure to report them to our readers.
