8th Gen Intel Core with Vega M release date specs

There are two options, the Core i7-8705G, which is a 65W chip with the 931MHz AMD Radeon RX Vega M GL GPU, and the Core i7-8809G, a 100W unlocked processor with the 1,063MHz Radeon RX Vega M GH. Intel has divided the class into four Core i7 and one Core i5 model with clock speeds ranging from 3.8 GHz (Core i5) to 4.2GHz (Core i7).

While AMD is still producing its own processors, Intel's interest in AMD is squarely focused on its graphical grunt with products in the Radeon family.

The HP ENVY x2 (image below) has optional 4G LTE connectivity and packs a 7th generation Intel CoreTM processor, 12.3-inch diagonal touch WUXGA+ display, 256GB PCIe SSD of storage, a pair of 13- and 5MP cameras, dual Bang & Olufsen speakers, up to 15 hours of battery life (and HP Fast Charge technology delivering 90% juice in 90 minutes), in addition to IR camera with Windows Hello support. The 14nm+ architecture chips are combined with either Radeon RX Vega M GH (Graphics High) or Radeon Graphics RX Vega M GL (Graphics Low).

Interestingly, the Vega M will also include a dedicated 4GB of HBM2; connected what Intel is calling the Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge (EMIB) technology. Further with the eight lanes of PCI Express Gen 3 interconnection between CPU and the GPU, the HBM2 will consume up to 50 percent less power compared to GDDR5 memory chips. The five new processors are all oriented for laptops and not for desktops. The flagship Core i7-8809G has four hyper-threaded cores accompanied by total 8MB of L3 cache. There will be i5 and i7 models for the chips and comes with 65 watts and 100 watts variant which the latter is unlocked and overclockable.

Intel and AMD's new 8th gen Core processors are part of the H series, and they are meant to offer increased performance without compromising the thin profile of modern ultrabooks. According to the official press release, the new processors are "Packed with features and performance crafted for gamers, content creators and fans of virtual and mixed reality, it expands Intel's portfolio thanks to its optimization for small form factors like 2 in 1s, thin and light notebooks, and mini PCs". Compared to a three-year-old i7-4720HQ with GTX 960M, Intel claims that upcoming chips will be 2.0-2.7 times faster.
