Intel's new NUC includes its 8th-gen processor with dedicated Radeon graphics

The new chip combines Intel's 8th Gen Intel Core CPU with a custom-designed AMD Radeon integrated GPU.

The HP Spectre x360 15 (2018) makes use of the eighth-generation Kaby Lake-G Core i7-8705G which has AMD's Vega M graphics on board, giving it a solid workhorse specification that can handle 4K and 3D content editing and streaming, as well as some gaming at 1080p.

This partnership between AMD and Intel serve both companies well.

The Radeon RX Vega M GH graphics packs 24 Compute Units (CUs) for a total of 1536 Stream Processors and 64 ROPs, base GPU clock of 1063MHz, GPU Boost clock of 1190MHz and 4GB of HMB2, offering up to 3.7TFLOPs of compute performance. The chips are created to power some of the highest-end gaming and professional laptops that will be shipped this year. Apart from the discrete graphics, the processor still includes Intel HD Graphics 630. EMIB acts as a high-speed intelligent information bridge between the GPU and HBM2 and reduces the usual silicon footprint to less than half that of discrete components implemented separately.

Intel has also released some of its internal benchmarks which shows some impressive results in both productivity and gaming benchmarks and applications, at least compared to a 3-year old notebook and desktop.

How are the new chips designed?

If Intel really want to give Nvidia a bloody nose on the gaming laptop front then they need to be more aggressive on pricing than they have been in the past.

Intel has also called the new NUC as the smallest premium VR-capable system in the market. If they really stuck it to Nvidia then there's a chance another unholy alliance, one between AMD and Nvidia, could be forged in the mobile space, cutting Intel out of the loop at the very highest end. "We are building on this momentum in 2018 as we make our strongest product portfolio of the last decade even stronger with new CPUs and GPUs that bring more features and more performance to a broad set of markets".

The lower-end SKU (NUC8i7HNK) drops down to a Core i7-8705G quad-core CPU clocked at 3.1GHz to 4.1GHz and Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics running at 921MHz to 1,011MHz.

Intel and AMD's new 8th gen Core processors are part of the H series, and they are meant to offer increased performance without compromising the thin profile of modern ultrabooks.
