Intel cores get Radeon graphics core

Intel and AMD are teaming up to kick Nvidia in the cores.

Chipzilla and AMD have confirmed they are co-designing an Intel Core microprocessor with a custom AMD Radeon graphics core inside the processor package. The chip is intended for laptops that are thin and lightweight but powerful enough to run high-end videogames, the companies said.

the combined AMD-Intel chip rumoured to be the "Kaby Lake G" will be an "evolution" of Intel's 8th-generation, H-series Core chips, with the ability to power-manage the entire module to preserve battery life.

It's scheduled to ship as early as the first quarter of 2018. Though both companies helped engineer the new chip, this is Intel's project. In fact Chipzilla first approached AMD.
