AMD And Intel Are Teaming Up To Take On NVIDIA

  • Intel squeezed an AMD graphics chip and RAM onto a CPU

"We're opening the door for thinner, lighter devices across notebooks, 2 in 1s and mini desktops, while delivering incredible performance and graphics for enthusiasts", shared Walker.

The collaboration is being interpreted as a way for Intel and AMD to counteract the increasing success of Nvidia's GPUs. "Together we are offering gamers and content creators the opportunity to have a thinner-and-lighter PC capable of delivering discrete performance-tier graphics experiences in AAA games and content creation applications". In close collaboration, we designed a new semi-custom graphics chip, which means this is also a great example of how we can compete and work together, ultimately delivering innovation that is good for consumers. This will be the first use of EMIB, and another technology that covers the chips, with this other being a power sharing framework. "This solution is the first mobile PC to use HBM2, which consumes much less power and takes up less space compared to traditional discrete graphics-based designs using dedicated graphics memory, like GDDR5 memory", Walker said. Nvidia holds almost 80% of the market for stand-alone graphics chips by revenue, in direct competition with AMD, and competes with Intel on artificial intelligence chips for large corporations, the Wall Street Journal noted. AMD has already seen a resurgence in 2017, stoking competition with its chief graphics rival with new Radeon Vega graphics cards that can compete with NVIDIA at the high-end. Intel says the silicon footprint of this new part will be less than half that of standard discrete graphics components on a motherboard, making it possible for OEMs to design thinner and lighter laptops without sacrificing performance. The spokesman said the Intel chip is targeting gamers while the chip AMD is launching by the end of the year isn't specialized to support that market specifically.

The rival chip manufacturers have announced a partnership that will see Intel produce a chip that combines an Intel CPU with an AMD graphics chip.

Drivers for the new hybrid will be created by Intel, although its engineers will be working closely with AMD to make sure "day one" drivers for the Radeon GPU work as expected. The goal is to deliver driver updates for new games on the day they are released, or shortly before, just as AMD and Nvidia now do with their gaming graphics products. Over the months, both Intel and AMD stayed tight lipped on the subject and now, it looks like the rumours were true all along.
