Intel's 8th Gen G-series processors pack RX Vega M graphics

As you can see from the table below, the Core i7-8809G and the Core i7-8709G, which are 100W parts, will come with Radeon RX Vega M GH graphics while the Core i7-8706G, Core i7-8705G, and the Core i5-8305 will pack Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics. Intel says devices powered by the new chips are three times faster, thinner, and lighter than "similar systems" from...three years ago. The new series comes with an H-Series processor which is made for high-end gaming laptops, alongside an AMD Radeon RX Vega chipset. The Radeon RX Vega M GL, will have 20 CUs, 1280 Stream Processors, 931MHz GPU base and 1011MHz GPU Boost clock and the same 4GB of HMB2, peaking at 2.6 TFLOPs. This implies titles like Vermintide 2 would now be able to be played in high-determination in a hurry. There's also a USB 3.1 Gen 2 port, which supports data transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps, and dual gigabit Ethernet ports.

According to Forbes, Intel worked with AMD to build a semi-custom GPU, one that helps that significantly helps them reduce the size of the design and power consumption.

Content creators can also do more with this new processor, whether it's creating 3D images from scratch, editing videos seamlessly at home or on the go, or using the most popular creative applications. While NUC8i7HVK is based on the unlocked version of 8th Gen Intel Core CPU with Radeon RX Vega M GH, the second version uses Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics. It has one of the HDMI ports on the front of the unit, making it easier to plug in the VR headset.

Targeted at DIYers, these NUCs will be sold as bare-bones kits.

Details about the latest 8th Gen Intel Core processor family was first announced in early November.

You might think "well, no games for me", but a lack of graphical power can mean a hampering of other things, potentially limited development, virtual reality, mixed reality, and more, and essentially saying that the ultra-thin computer in your life is meant for office productivity and web surfing. This architecture backed up with the real-time power-sharing framework and software drivers is the ideal example of the next generation device.

It will take a little while before these new processors make it to actual devices, though. More can be expected from the American Multinational Corporation on the high-end performance notebook segment and the Core H-series.

A huge variety of new 8th Gen Intel Core devices will be displayed at the company's CES booth, 100048 in Central Hall South at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
