    So it was real after all.

    Probably for Apple, but not stated as such.

    This is a single package, Intel CPU, with a Custom Radeon GPU and a single stack of HBM2 memory.
    Its to enable thin and light gaming laptops, thinner than the current 26mm, down to 16mm, and maybe even 11mm, if the cooling can be done right.

    They are talking about H-Series CPU's, in the 35-45W range.
    I would expect the GPU to be about the same thermal envelope, about 35-45W, including the HBM2.

    The whole world and his dog are stating "Hell hath Frozen over...."

    I'm excited to see what type of GPU they are putting in this.
    how powerful it is, and how many shaders, etc...

    not sure about the power consumption tho.
    it could be 45W all told, or 45W for the CPU, and more for the GPU.
    To be economically viable, Intel may have to make GPU-less CPU's, just for this.
    So maybe 15W for the CPU, and 35W max for the GPU part ?

    I wonder what sort of price range this will be in?

    So this laptop will cost $5000AU and no one will buy it. Sick technology fam.

    I can't wait to game at mid range gpu performance on 4k res on a 15.6" laptop which has a garbage TN panel and had a battery life of 2 hours at that res.

    Maybe they should bundle in some VR glasses and add $600 more to the $5000 price for the 'Ultimate Gaming Machine on the Go'(TM).

    So, no more Intel integrated graphics card on solutions using a discrate card? Finally... Otherwise I do not see what is new at all.

    So they are doing what they denied 2-4 months ago and they are "gluing" it together, interesting to see the outcome.

    This should mean a significant increase in interest from developers for using GCN specific solutions and the end of the era, optimization mainly for NV.

    I think that the reason they are doing this is because Apple gonna order a lot chips from them, already they are using Intel CPU + AMD GPU so this is expected, moreover this way they are keeping Apple from going Full AMD SOC(GPU/CPU=APU).

    Good point.
    Intel would do anything to keep Apple as a customer....

    So now I can run my Linux on Windows on an AMD-Intel chip. I must remember to take a coat when time comes to go to hell, it must be frosty down there.:):):):)

    Keep in mind, the AMD GPU is still technically discrete, and Intel is still using their own integrated graphics in this configuration. So far, this configuration seems to be specific to just mobile platforms.

    This really isn't that special once you realize it's nothing more than a HBM2-powered GPU that works with Intel's EMIB platform.

    Dont be too excited, it could be other OEM not for normal mortals stuff like Intel Iris GPU.. I tried to build 35W TDP machine with decent GPU and i found out that i cant buy any of Iris GPU bellow 65W, because they are not for normal mortals, but only for club of intel OEM friends..

    The only reason this is done is for reducing the total footprint. It's a partnership on the board level, not on the chip level.

    why the frack would they do something with their competitors when nVidia and Intel used to work so well, now it seems like since Amd bought ATi ....
    WTF WTF is nVidia beginning to be THAT much ??

    Is this supposed to be a picture of it? Because if so, i'm not seeing anything new here....just a CPU and a GPU, not in the same package.
