Back in November 2017, Intel announced it was creating a special line of chips for PC gaming hardware that would pack an Intel Core H-series processor with a "Vega M" GPU chip from AMD's Radeon group, which is best known for creating dedicated graphics cards. Effectively a special PCIe link, it made for a single package containing the processor, graphics, and the graphics memory. That, the two companies promised, would pave the way for thin-and-light notebooks that still included discrete graphics.
The Kaby Lake-G CPUs were a weird beast right from the beginning. A few notebooks launched using the product, but then Intel threw its future into uncertainty with its own graphics chip roadmap. That could possibley come later this year or early next year, though no word of a refresh has been relayed yet.More news: EPL: Man Utd getting worse, have only three good players - Michael Owen
In an alert to PC manufacturers, Intel announced the move, noting that January 31, 2020, will mark the final date they can place orders for chips.
And it should become even cheaper, now, with Intel dropping the recommended price in the United States from $182 to $157.More news: US House Republicans to Seek Sanctions on Turkey Over Kurd Offensive
Following a leak last week, Intel has officially revealed performance figures and other data for its 18-core i9 Extreme Edition and other 9th-gen X-Series chips.
"We're making it easier for IT decisionmakers in the line of business, as well as.the engineers and the developers, to go advocate for and say I need a little bit more performance", Soqui said. Online pricing is already less than Intel's recommendation, and generally pitched around the $140 to $150 mark in the USA (and about the same in United Kingdom pounds) - so hopefully we will see the results of this 14% price cut filter through to online retailers in short order, making the Core i5-9400F even more tempting. Meant to be a more potent option to satisfy the power demands of gamers, they'll arrive with the Intel Graphics Command Center, a tool with which enthusiasts will be able to tinker with the settings of the GPUs to balance things like performance and energy consumption.More news: Vaping Outbreak Death Toll Climbs to More Than 2 Dozen
