This single chip processor would house both the CPU, GPU and dedicated graphics memory (HBM 2) and would be an “evolution” of Intel’s 8th-generation, H-series Core chips, with the ability to power-manage the entire module to preserve battery life and result to a faster and stronger system efficiency as well as an highly improved power handling system.

It was learnt that Intel were the first to approach AMD with this idea. According to their spokesperson, Chris Walker, Intel had a problem because the AAA gaming PCs were being sold out and more customers were interested in VR, but the notebooks that were available for this in terms of graphics horsepower were very thick, heavy and not practicable. They saw that customers were already seeing some growth in two-in-one PCs as well as slimmer and lightweight PCs. So the million dollar question to Intel was how they could make high-performance notebooks which wouldn't weigh as much as a ton.
The new Intel Core microprocessor would be available for shipping in the early quarter of 2018.
