Intel Launches Most Powerful Intel NUC

The company is apparently telling people that the custom Radeon RX Vega M can match the gaming performance of a GeForce GTX 1060 Max-Q. Obviously, the latter contains a lot more power, and of course, you can overclock it. They'll be available on March 18 and will retail for $1370. The top two models (8809G and 8709G) have the faster Radeon RX Vega M GH graphics and the other three have the Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics.

Both of which look mighty exciting, especially given even the Core i5 G-series chip is packing 20 Vega compute units (CUs) and therefore 1,280 Graphics Core Next (GCN) cores.

While the first systems to run with this include HP and Dell, you have to wonder if Apple's next-gen slim MacBook will take advantage of this new combined CPU and Graphics board later this year.

A variety of new 8th Gen Intel Core devices will be on display at Intel's CES booth, #100048 in Central Hall South at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The GH models have a TDP of 100W and the GL models have a TDP of 65W.

At the budget end of the spectrum is the Core i5-8305G. HP says it's designed for "creative enthusiasts and professional creatives", and has some seriously impressive hardware under the hood to assist with the most heavy of tasks.

Intel Launches Most Powerful Intel NUC

"This is a great product that allows Intel and AMD to make a real attempt to compete with Nvidia at the high end", Moorhead wrote in his Forbes blog.

The collaboration is created to help Intel and AMD compete with their biggest rival in the world of high-end laptops, which is Nvidia. As more information is released by Intel on worldwide availability, we will keep you up-to-date as always.

What is so special about the new 8th Gen Intel Core CPU's?

That might mean the 28 CU Vega silicon is actually the core at the heart of one of the new Radeon Vega Mobile GPUs. Altogether, in its smart play, Intel has announced five CPUs as part of G-series.

AMD CTO and SVP Mark Papermaster shared updates on AMD's process technology roadmaps for both x86 processors and graphics architectures. The combination promises to offer better performance compared to the combination of the 15-watt Intel Kaby Lake R-series Core i7 and the Nvidia MX150.

The mobile market is an increasingly competitive, lucrative space, but Intel have not historically had to fight their battles on a pricing basis, so it's going to be interesting to see if they can this time around.
