AMD Making iGPU For Intel Mobile 8th Gen CPU

Interestingly, this was Intel's idea.
Quote:The dawn of the chiplet marks a tremendous shift in the semiconductor industry. The industry is somewhat skeptical of the chiplet concept, largely because it requires competitors to arm their competition, but the Intel and AMD collaboration proves that it can work with two of the biggest heavyweights in the computing industry. Not to mention bitter rivals. Industry watchers have also largely been in agreement that EMIB would not filter down to the consumer market for several years, but the announcement clearly proves the technology is ready for prime time.

DARPA initially brought the chiplet revolution to the forefront with its CHIPS (Common Heterogeneous Integration and Intellectual Property (IP) Reuse Strategies) initiative, which aims to circumvent the limitations of the waning Moore's Law.

Intel plans to bring the new devices to market early in 2018 through several major OEMs. Neither Intel nor AMD have released any detailed information, such as graphics or compute capabilities, TDP ratings, or HBM2 capacity, but we expect those details to come to light early next year.

Three Hades Canyon units are planned, with TDPs up to 96W. Also, one of the commenters linked to this leaked graph from PCPer:

Quote:Intel's leak also confirmed that the i7-8809G boasts Radeon RX Vega graphics power alongside its Intel CPU. Intel didn't reveal any information about the processing resources or graphics memory available from the Radeon RX Vega M GH processor, but the package power figure and our back-of-the-napkin divvying-up of that figure suggest that this could be a Radeon RX 550 or Radeon RX 560-class GPU.

We already know that RX Vega parts tend to scale well down the voltage-and-frequency curve from our experience with Vega desktop cards' power profiles, and we've already seen how well eight Vega compute units perform in a 25 W package aboard the Ryzen 5 2500U APU, so it's possible that drawing conclusions about this GPU's weight class from Polaris chips is pessimistic. We'll really need to wait for further details to peg the position of this chip in the GPU hierarchy.

Quote:Things get interesting with the way Intel describes its integrated graphics solution. It mentions both the star-attraction, the AMD Radeon RX Vega M GH, and the Intel HD Graphics 630 located on the "Kaby Lake" CPU die. This indicates that Intel could deploy a mixed multi-GPU solution that's transparent to software, balancing graphics loads between the HD 630 and RX Vega M GH, depending on the load and thermal conditions. Speaking of which, Intel has rated the TDP of the MCM at 100W, with a rider stating "target package TDP," since there's no scientifically-correct way of measuring TDP on a multi-chip module. Intel could build performance-segment NUCs with this chip, in addition to selling them to mini-PC manufacturers.

Specifications of the RX Vega M GH continue to elude us. All we know is that it has its own 4 GB HBM2 memory stack over a 1024-bit wide memory interface, ticking at 800 MHz (204.8 GB/s memory bandwidth), and a GPU engine clock of 1.19 GHz. Even if this chip offers performance in the neighborhood of the discrete Radeon RX 570 4 GB, it should make for a killer entry-level gaming solution. Motherboards based on it could quickly capture the gaming iCafe, entry-gaming PC, and performance AIO markets.

LTT has a good 5 minute long summary of Hades Canyon, it reportedly hit 5 GHz in the lab:

Quote:We've got some results from multiple Rise of the Tomb Raider benchmark runs to give you all a taste of what the Radeon RX Vega M GL GPU can do. The XPS 15 2-In-1 we tested here was configured with a Core i7-8705G processor (3.1GHz base, 4.1GHz boost), the aforementioned Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics engine, 16GB of DDR4 memory, and an ultra-fast NVMe SSD.

Running at 1920x1080 resolution, the XPS 15 2-in-1 was able to maintain an average frame rate of nearly 35 frames per second with High image quality settings dialed in (29.69 on Very High in the video above). Not bad, for a roughly 4.5 pound machine that measures only 16 mm thick. Compared to a similar 8th Gen Core system with Intel's own integrated UHD 620 graphics, it was no contest. Even on Medium quality settings, the Intel UHD 620 was only able to manage about 8 frames per second. In fact, Intel's own 8th Gen IGP can't even run the game on High IQ because it runs out of frame buffer memory.

In our video above, we're fairly certain that the 29.69 frames per second run on the XPS 15 2-in-1 was accomplished using the Very High IQ setting (re-confirming with Dell). For further comparison, an 8th Gen Core processor paired with an NVIDIA MX 150 GPU was able to put up an average frame rate of around 23 frames per second in the same benchmark but at High IQ settings.
