Nvidia holds almost 80% of the market for stand-alone graphics chips by revenue, in direct competition with AMD, and competes with Intel on artificial intelligence chips for large corporations, the Wall Street Journal noted.

AMD said the product won't compete with its own Ryzen chips - also designed for gamers wanting thin laptops - that are due out at the end of the year. While Intel has been in the discrete graphics business for years, it's never been able to fend off Nvidia in the way that AMD has with its Radeon GPUs.

Broadcom offers $103 billion for Qualcomm in chip megadeal
It is likely that Qualcomm will reject the bid, as it believes that its value is far below what the company is worth. On Monday, Broadcom made an unsolicited offer to pay $70 per share to buy its rival.

Unlike having an Intel CPU plus a dedicated GPU on a motherboard, the company says that its the new design can reduce silicon footprint by more than 50%, and it also supports real-time power sharing across the CPU, GPU and stack memory.

Arch rivals AMD and Intel have joined forces to create a laptop chip that mixes their expertise in processors and graphics to enable ultraportables to have gaming power. As noted by The Wall Street Journal, this is the first partnership between Intel and AMD since 1980s. These systems average 26 mm in thickness whereas the modern premium laptops are trending down to 16 mm or less.

The union will combine AMD's graphics chip with a Core H-series CPU with second generation high bandwidth memory (HBM2). Take some deep breaths, then take to our comments section to give us your thoughts on this momentous announcement from Intel and AMD. At the heart of the design is an embedded multi-die interconnect bridge (EMIB), a small intelligent bridge that allows heterogeneous silicon to quickly pass information in close proximity. The executive added that together, they are offering gamers and content creators the opportunity to have a thinner and lighter PC that is capable of delivering discrete performance-tier graphics experiences in AAA games and content creation applications. "This new semi-custom GPU puts the performance and capabilities of Radeon graphics into the hands of an expanded set of enthusiasts who want the best visual experience possible". Is Intel really working with its competition? AMD is very specific in pointing out that this new chip will be aimed at more serious gamers, whereas the Ryzen chips can run general games, but aren't designed for the specific objective of serious gaming.

Intel has essentially worked with Sunnyvale-based Advanced Micro Devices to develop and integrate the necessary memory technology and graphics chip from Radeon Technologies. This partnership gets more AMD GPUs out there, although it remains to be seen how well AMD's custom-made effort will stack up to the advancements NVIDIA has made in mobile gaming.
