AMD, Intel Team Up To Take On Nvidia In Gaming Laptops

Intel introduces a new product in the 8th Gen Intel Core processor family that combines high-performance CPU with discrete graphics for a thin sleek design

Chris Walker, vice president of the Client Computing Group and general manager of the Mobile Client Platform at Intel, said that the new joint project between Intel and AMD is "a great example of how we can compete and work together, ultimately delivering innovation that is good for consumers". We're here to help with the best CPUs for gaming. And AMD has a new class of chips out now that could erode Intel's position in the PC and data center sectors.

This is the first partnership between the two companies since the 1980s, who have for years battled in the CPU arena; Intel had been on top in terms of CPU power and performance until AMD's Ryzen processors made their debut this year. The product will be aimed at laptops that are lightweight but can still handle serious gaming and other graphics-intensive applications.

It's been a whirlwind year in the PC market, in no small part thanks to the return of AMD.

For now, Intel and AMD aren't giving technical details behind the new chip, like how fast the cores on it will run.

If successful, the partnership certainly puts Nvidia in a precarious spot.

So this new initiative, which is yet another part of what Intel is calling its 8th generation Core processor family, combines a high-performance H-series Core processor with second-generation High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2) and a custom AMD Radeon discrete graphics chip, all in a single processor package.

Lebanon PM Resigns, Bringing Saudi-Iran Proxy Conflict to the Fore
Rafik al-Hariri was killed in a 2005 Beirut bomb attack that pushed his son Saad into politics and set off years of turmoil. Hariri's coalition, which took office a year ago , grouped almost all of Lebanon's main parties, including Hezbollah.

We can expect notebooks powered by this Intel and AMD-developed chip to be released in the coming months. This allows for real-time monitoring of temperature, power, and performance - yet again, not unlike AMD's Infinity Fabric. Currently, most of the high-performance laptops have Intel Core H-series processors combined with a high-end discrete graphics from AMD or NVIDIA.

Instead - remarkably - they'll be using custom-built GPUs from AMD. It is one of seven chip-industry players on the list.

These products initially seem awfully close to occupying the same market territory. The idea is that powerful laptops for gamers no longer have to be chunky beasts.

Rival competitors in the technology sector rarely collaborate.

While I'm sure a little Intel money is an incredibly persuasive argument alone, AMD are likely to benefit from the increase share than Intel can offer them for their Radeon graphics tech, while at the same time forcing competitors Nvidia to hitch another ride somewhere that isn't off Intel's back.

The collaboration is being interpreted as a way for Intel and AMD to counteract the increasing success of Nvidia's GPUs.
