For 20 years, Intel and AMD will finally be at the forefront of axing.
Over the years, competitors have surprised everyone last year. This is because the latter announced the release of a CPU with a graphics chip designed by the latter. Now the chip manufacturer in Santa Clara officially puts the Radeon RX Vega Graphics chip on the core i7-8809G processor on its website.
On the page that details the unlocked Intel CPU, Core i7-8809G is in complete contrast with the rest of the chip with integrated Radeon RX Vega M GH graphics.
Interestingly, Intel has listed its HD graphics 630 with the AMD chip in the ‘Graphics’ column. The possibility remains that Intel chips will continue to be integrated graphics (IGP), but AMD silicon will be package graphics (pGPU).
As for the other details, the core i7-8809G is a quad core, hyperthreaded processor with base clock of 3.1 GHz and 8 MB L3 cache. The chip supports two DDR4-2400 RAM channels and has a 100W ‘target’ TDP. No more information is available at this time, including reliable information about whether it is Kaby Lake or Coffee Lake chips.
Although the name of the 8000 series was mentioned at Coffee Lake, all the new chips released so far have six cores each and support up to DDR4-2666. The 8890G does not have two additional cores and only supports up to DDR4-2400, which can represent an old Kaby Lake chip with an 8000 series name to avoid market turmoil.
At this stage there is no official confirmation of Intel, but there are two more G-series mobile processors (i7-8705G and i7-8706G) that are rumored to ship with the AMD GPU.
