Intel plans new Kaby Lake processors with integrated AMD GPU
There has been a rumor for a long time, a priori quite implausible, of some new Intel processors with integrated GPU by AMDnow it seems that this idea is becoming a reality and it is possible that we will see a version of the current processors Kaby Lake using rival brand graphics chips.
According to Hard|OCP editor Kyle Bennett, the initial rumors of this deal have come to fruition and in 2017 we will see a new Kaby Lake processor with an AMD GPU. According to his information, this processor will be a “multi-chip module” (MCM) configuration, so the GPU will not be integrated into the same core (die) as the CPU, as is now the case with its Intel HD Graphics solution.
With this solution in the package, on the one hand we will have the Intel die with the CPU and on the other the AMD GPU solution, these two parts will be assembled controlled by Intel in the facilities of Global Foundries or TSMC. This new processor will be focused on the input and medium range, something that conflicts with AMD APUs since a priori they would be in the same segment. It will certainly be interesting to see this product with which Intel would benefit from the graphics power of AMD and the use of its patents, without a doubt with this we will see once and for all a miniPC with native HDMI 2.0 output and a fairly generous 3D power.
