Today, Intel announced that it is teaming up with another processor giant, AMD. The new Intel core processor combines high performance Central Processing Unit (CPU) with custom discrete graphics from AMD to enable or make way for thinner and sleeker devices.
The idea behind this according to Intel is to create more powerful, thinner and lighter mobile PCs that will deliver a premium experience.
According to Intel, most enthusiast mobile personal computers currently have Intel Core-H series processors plus higher powered discrete graphics in them. This results in the production of systems averaging 26mm in height. "This cannot be compared to thin laptops having an height of 16mm or even as thin as 11mm".
"We want to find a way to deliver a strong combination performance-level processors and discrete graphics that open the door to even smaller form factors. And, we knew we could do it by combining our Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge (EMIB) technology with a new power-sharing framework."
It appears that intel is devoting resources into improving the performance of integrated graphics.
According to the Vice President and General Manger of AMD Radeon Technologies group, the collaboration with Intel will expand the installed base for "AMD Radeon GPUs and brings to market a differentiated solution for high-performance graphics".
