AMD Launches Ryzen Pro Mobile CPUs

AMD Launches Ryzen Pro Mobile CPUs

Just days before CES, Intel had mistakenly leaked details of its upcoming Radeon chipset. With a new slim design they can now fit in devices which are 17mm slim.

So the entry-tier Ryzen 3 Pro CPU is a quad-core (four-thread) model clocked at up to 3.4GHz with boost, with integrated Vega Graphics boasting six graphics compute units and a GPU clock of up to 1100MHz. They also use Intel's Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge (EMIB) technology, which the release described as "a high-speed intelligent information bridge between the GPU and HBM2 and reduces the usual silicon footprint to less than half that of discrete components implemented separately".

The new 8th-gen chipset will come in two configurations - one with "Radeon RX Vega M GL Graphics" (65W total package power) and the other with "RX Vega M GH Graphics" (100W total package power) which features an unlocked configuration. This 1.20-liter system packs powerful new CPU and dedicated graphics solution.

Intel is saying that there will be new products from HP and Dell featuring the new Core processors. Even though the specifications of the Intel Core i7-8706G and Core i7-8705G processors are same, the major change is with the graphics processor, which is AMD Radeon RX Vega M GL. The architecture designed for "intense" graphics workload connects both the chip with a single electronic package.

Now that the CPU and APU news from AMD has been covered, we can move on to the GPU news, which includes two product announcements.

The chip maker has also launched the latest and most powerful Intel® NUC created to complement the latest processor.

With these new processors, OEMs will have the capacity to cut down sizes of gaming PCs considerably. The flagship Core i7-8809G has four hyper-threaded cores accompanied by total 8MB of L3 cache.

John Webb, the director of client graphics marketing at Intel, in a press briefing said (via Venture Beat), that the new Core H processors work with High Bandwidth Memory 2 (HBM2), a more power-efficient stacked memory technology that AMD pioneered and has since been turned into an industry standard. The top of the line SKU will be restricted to i7 center processor and will present 4.2GHz paces. The company is targeting the latest chips and the overall solution for gamers, content creators, and virtual reality fans, Webb added. The systems are also 40% faster, thinner, and lighter than systems with current custom discrete graphics.
