The end-of-life vision of the chip market turns out to be true: Intel has the ability to integrate different types of chips into the same processing unit, thus opening up a window for groundbreaking applications and applications
Last year, we heard a wild rumor that Intel plans to include graphics cores of the veteran competitor AMD In some of their processors - what sounds like a clear conflict of interest for a company that has been working for years Development Its own custom graphics processing architecture.
It is now revealed, without warning, that the rumors were true - and the integration of the opponent's graphic cores is only part of a new and promising set of technological capabilities in the world of chips which is becoming a reality thanks to EMIB (Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge). Various processing in a unified shell with extremely high bandwidths and low residence times, and a price that would be much more accessible than the silicone interposers required to obtain a similar capability to date.
EMIB technology makes it possible to assemble SoC-like products from chips developed and manufactured by different companies, in different manufacturing plants and even in different lithographs - and this includes a combination of memory components, communication components and different accelerators, with the first commercial application already in the eighth generation of Core Intel, with portable models from the H family that will indeed include a custom graphics core from the RTG group of AMD, Along with dedicated HBM2 memory and general processing core Intel herself.
The new model (or new models) will be officially displayed in the first quarter of the year 2018, and here is the official information that has been supplied to us, and there are endless speculations about the possibility of dropping such a bomb: Will the new products offer the power envelope familiar to us from previous versions of 35 watts to 45 watts , Or does it seem to be based on increased consumption to get more advanced performance? Do we see products here with a pair, four or six processing cores? Will we be able to see the latest Vega architecture? AMD, Or rather about Polaris? How much will all this pleasure cost and more - the land of unlimited possibilities is here.
This new development of Intel Is undoubtedly the future of the world of chips, with the potential to contain an ever greater amount of elements in one dense and efficient product and the ability to match the capabilities and performance much more effectively to any market and to any large consumer. We are eager to find out more about him in the coming months.
