Intel adds gaming, VR performance

Intel also claimed that the G-Series chips outperform the 8th Generation U-Series processors paired with a Nvidia GTX 1050 GPU by about 1.4 times when it comes to gaming.

With these new processors, OEMs will have the capacity to cut down sizes of gaming PCs considerably.

According to Intel Newsroom, Dell and HP will be the first companies to launch latest 2-in-1 laptops featuring these processors.

The collaboration is created to help Intel and AMD compete with their biggest rival in the world of high-end laptops, which is Nvidia. With a new slim design they can now fit in devices which are 17mm slim.

NUC will be launched into the markets in two versions, namely NUC8i7HVK and NUC8i7HNK. The processor has a base clock of 3.1 GHz and a max boost block of 4.1 GHz.

The collaboration was made possible chiefly because Intel lacks a GPU that performs as well as AMD's Radeon RX Vega, while AMD has struggled to compete with Intel's central processing units. The Radeon Graphics RX Vega M GH models have 100W TDP rating meanwhile the GL models have a 65W TDP. The firm said it is packed with features and performance crafted for gamers, content creators and fans of virtual and mixed reality, and expands the company's portfolio thanks to its optimisation for small form factors like 2-in-1s, thin and light notebooks, and mini PCs. The CPU unites the Intel quad-center CPU, Radeon RX Vega M illustrations and 4GB of committed HBM2 utilizing Intel's new Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge (EMIB) innovation. The GPU and VRAM then communicate with the CPU over a x8 PCIe 3.0 interface within the processor.

The product link provided points directly to the HP Spectre x360 15, with Intel Core i7 8705G processor. The Core i5 will come with Hyper-Threading enabled, in other words the difference between the Core i5 and Core i7 chips will be clockspeeds and the amount of L3 cache.

If you look at the Core i5-8305G, the processor runs at a clock speed of 3.8GHz with a base clock frequency of 2.8GHz.

Intel might be receiving a lot of flak lately for the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities, but the chip maker is unfazed and continues moving forward against all odds.

Intel says that with its new chips, you can power up to nine monitors, and this is especially true of the higher end model.

The new Intel NUC (formerly code-named Hades Canyon) brings this powerful new processor and graphics solution into an incredibly tiny 1.20-liter system.
