Even before the official presentation planned for the first quarter of 2018, information on the MCM processor (multi-chip module) appeared on the Internet, Intel Core i7-8709G. Some characteristics of this device were learned with the help of Futuremark SystemInfo.
According to available information, the Kaby Lake-G MCM processor includes a 4-core processor module based on the Kaby Lake architecture and a module of the AMD Radeon Vega M graphics subsystem with dedicated HBM2 memory. According to Futuremark SystemInfo, the computational module supports the processing of 8 data streams and operates at a base frequency of 3.1 GHz, and the frequency in the Turbo Boost mode is 3.9 GHz.
The graphical core of the Radeon RX Vega M (694C: C0) operates at a frequency of 1.19 GHz. About the characteristics of the GPU information is no more, but some data about the memory subsystem are known. For the needs of a graphics core, 4 GB of HBM2 memory with a frequency of 800 MHz and a 1024-bit access bus are available. The memory bandwidth is 204.8 GB / s.
- Last month it became known that Intel intends to release processors with an integrated AMD Radeon GPU. Then it was about the mobile solutions of the Intel Core H-series 8th generation.
