Intel and AMD are known to be competitors on the PC market, especially when it comes to processors. However, there is a new player on the market now – NVIDIA. In order to compete with this company, Intel and AMD decided to cooperate.
The result turned out to be quite fruitful – they made a new chipset with a CPU from Intel and GPU from AMD. The new processor is made for laptops which will combine portability with power for gaming. The device will be part of the 8-gen Intel Core line-up and will be the first partnership between Intel and AMD since the 1980s.
Intel believes that this will be the first processor that will be made using the EMIB bridge which provides quicker data transfer to very small distances. The bridge allows the chips to be more compact and more powerful. The new processor will also boast HBM2 memory and can be used in a wide range of devices, including laptops, 2-in-2 transformers and mini desktops.
The release of the Intel-AMD chipset is scheduled on the first quarter of 2018.
