Intel has taken the Radeon graphics in its multi-chip module

Intel Multichip Module

Intel and AMD announced that the new multi-chip module from Intel will include a “semi-standard” GPU from AMD . The product is planned to be released on the market in I sq. 2018 year. The module includes the following:

According to Intel, the integration of all components into a single module reduces the area of ​​the motherboard (the demonstration video shows the figure of 1900 mm², and in the press release 50%), reduces the distance between graphics, CPU and memory, and for optimal performance. ”

"Our collaboration with Intel extends the installed base for AMD Radeon GPUs and brings to market a differentiated solution for high-performance graphics," said Scott Herkelman, vice president and general manager, AMD Radeon Technologies Group. “Together, we offer players and studios a thinner, lighter computer with powerful graphics for AAA games and content creation applications.”

Apparently, this is a mutually beneficial cooperation. Intel produces a solution for gamers, where Intel processors are, but taking away margins from AMD (that is, selling its products and lowering AMD to the level of a simple component supplier). In turn, AMD is expanding the market, taking away the share of the gaming market from Nvidia.

The new multi-chip module uses a new power-sharing system and Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge (EMIB) technology to build a multi-chip module.
