New 8th-Gen Intel Core CPUs with Radeon targets creative professionals

New 8th-Gen Intel Core CPUs with Radeon targets creative professionals

The chips will also support up to nine video outputs-six from the Vega chip and three more from the Intel GPU.

In addition to the Intel NUC and new Dell and HP devices, Intel says its new processor "will enable a gaming cloud solution brought on by Artesyn and Gamestream", but that "this is only the start of what's coming with the 8th Gen Intel Core product portfolio this year".

The other tier is designed for systems that can handle a power draw of 100 watts: compact desktops and all-in-ones, for example, or what Intel refers to as 1.2-liter systems (73 cubic inches). That's using the faster Vega GH variant in both cases, and there will nearly certainly be games that favor Nvidia's GTX 1060, but overall the new processors should be quite capable.

All CPUs are quad-core with Hyper-threading and all are unlocked for overclocking, except for the Core i5.

Packers continue GM interviews with top internal candidate Friday
Green Bay will promote director of player personnel Brian Gutekunst to general manager, NFL Media first reported . Gutekunst has been with the Packers almost 20 years, joining the franchise in late 1998.

Perhaps what's more telling is that AMD is positioning this unreleased chip as a mobile workstation offering as much as a gaming champion.

Chipmaker Intel has launched its new 8th Gen Intel Core processors with Radeon RX Vega M graphics aimed at the enthusiasts community, which is growing exponentially with gaming, content creation and virtual as well as mixed reality. With Intel's newest launch, built-in graphics performance is about to get a lot faster and they've partnered with rival AMD to do it. Intel calls the EMIB the heart of the chip unit design, and the company says that it eliminates height impact and greatly reduces manufacturing and design complexities. Each processor will have an 8th-gen CPU, a custom RX Vega M GPU, and 4GB of HBM2 memory. Using Hybrid graphics, systems will be able to switch between the two chips, optimising for battery life or performance, depending on need. Engadget notes that this means at least 60fps graphics at 1080p resolution with games like DOOM; that doesn't exactly translate into VR-readiness, but it'll be interesting to see how these machines perform in benchmark tests when they're closer to hitting store shelves in the spring.

Wait, Intel and AMD on the same chip?

Intel is promising that it will have Day Zero drivers, which you can download prior to a games' release, ready for triple-A titles. The Vega graphics are also somewhat stunted compared to the HVK - the RX Vega M GL graphics reach a peak frequency of 1,011MHz, and it can't be overclocked. Internal testing shows them to be up to 12 per cent faster than the reference card released in August past year, but we find that surprising given that the well-cooled Sapphire Nitro+ wasn't much quicker than the base card.

Check your tickets! Three NC Powerball tickets win
Saturday night, January 6th, the Powerball jackpot numbers will be drawn and a whopping $570 million is up for grabs. The massive prize comes after Mega Millions dished out USD$450m (£331m) to a lucky victor on Friday.

We don't know what kind of prices Intel will be asking for, but we'll let you know as soon as we've heard.

Base- and boost clock speeds are slower, and there's around half the memory bandwidth to play with.

In terms of features, the Vega M GPU have pretty much the same set as the desktop GPUs.

One bit of good news is that Radeons will support FreeSync technology over HDMI 2.1.

Jaguars defeat Bills 10-3
His 2-and-20 pass with 26 seconds left was intercepted by Jalen Ramsey to seal the game with under a minute left. The defensive units for the Jaguars and Bills proved equally effective in limiting scoring opportunities.
