It has announced two different configurations: one with Radeon RX Vega M GL Graphics and another with Radeon RX Vega M GH Graphics.

The eighth generation of Intel Core processors continues to evolve. Intel has announced processors of this family with Radeon RX Vega M graphics .

Specifically announced two different configurations . The first is an eighth generation Intel Core processor with Radeon RX Vega M GL Graphics and total power of 65 W, while the second is combined with Radeon RX Vega M GH Graphics and reaches 100 W.

The Radeon RX Vega M graphics is joined by a quad-core Intel CPU and dedicated 4 GB HBM2 with EMIB technology.

These processors are aimed at content creators, players and virtual reality enthusiasts . For example, they promise to triple the frames per second in lighter devices than similar systems three years ago and an improvement of 40% compared to today’s discrete graphics.

And, as they explain from the California company, they stand out for their “optimization for small form factors such as 2 in 1, thin and light notebooks and mini PCs” . In fact, there are already hybrid devices from Dell and HP that include this processor among their specifications. It is also inside the new Intel NUC.

Intel has announced that its new creation will also be used in a cloud solution for Artesyn and Gamestream games. And we can expect more developments linked to the eighth-generation Intel Core, including the Intel Core vPro platform of eighth generation for companies.

Specter and Meltdown

As for the last thing that Intel has said about the problem that arose with its processors and those of other companies, the Specter and Meltdown vulnerabilities, last Friday it explained that both she and her partners were “making significant advances in the deployment of updates through of software patches and firmware updates . ” Intel would have released updates to “the majority of processors submitted during the last five years.”

It is expected that by the end of this week more than 90% of said processors will be covered .

Intel, which has enabled a microsite on this issue, has also insisted that “the impact of these updates on the performance of the equipment depends largely on the workloads and that, for the average user of computers, should not be important and will be minimized over time. ”
