Hybrid Intel get AMD GPU with 1536 stream processors and 4 GB of memory
Yesterday something happened, what was the buzz year, but few people believed that Intel announced processors with graphics core AMD. Details almost was not. We hypothesized that it may be the CPU family Cannonlake.
However, new data indicate that the new family will be called Kaby Lake-G. That is, it is still the same 14-nanometer process technology, which automatically raises the question of energy consumption. On the other hand, in theory nothing prevents to use for the data CPU a more subtle process.
And while this question remains open, we have the opportunity to familiarize with the parameters of new products. Now aware of three processors: Core i7-8705G, Core i7-8706G and Core i7-8809G. It will be Quad-core models with Hyper-Threading. The base frequency, if you focus on the indications FOR the test, all three will be 3.1 GHz. Overclocked to 3.7 GHz Core i7-8705G and 4.1 GHz Core i7-8809G. At the expense of the Core i7-8706G the situation is unclear, as he indicates AT the same 3.1 GHz.
But the most interesting, of course, is the graphics core. If you believe the leaks, in the maximum configuration it consists of 24 compute units, which means there are 1536 stream processors! For comparison, the Radeon RX 560 has 1024 stream processors, and RX 570 — 2048. And this is the solution generation Polaris and the new products Intel is likely to use GPU Vega. We will remind, at the brand-new mobile APU Ryzen max of 640 stream processors. And don’t forget that Intel, if they now can even be called that, have the memory HBM2 for the graphics core that is integrated GPU can be almost directly compared with the desktop counterparts. It appears that the graphics performance of the processors Kaby Lake-G is really impressive for this segment. At AMD there is no analogues in the parameters, but we can assume that in the games the integrated GPU of the Intel innovations will be roughly comparable to the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. Although, of course, is to wait until tests.
Memory in the processor is 4 GB. It will operate at frequencies of 700-800 MHz. Himself GPU will work at frequencies around 1000-1100 MHz, which will provide performance at the level of 3.3 TFLOPS.
There are even tests a new CPU, but, for example, in the Ashes of the Singularity of the scatter is very large, so these data should be treated accordingly.
