HP Spectre x360 15 and Envy x2 launched at CES 2018

The new 8th-gen chipset will come in two configurations - one with "Radeon RX Vega M GL Graphics" (65W total package power) and the other with "RX Vega M GH Graphics" (100W total package power) which features an unlocked configuration.

Intel says the CPU can accomplish up to three times the casings for each second on more slender, lighter and littler gadgets "contrasted and comparative frameworks from three years back and up to 40 for every penny contrasted and current discrete designs". There will be i5 and i7 models for the chips and comes with 65 watts and 100 watts variant which the latter is unlocked and overclockable.

NUC will be launched into the markets in two versions, namely NUC8i7HVK and NUC8i7HNK.

John Webb, the director of client graphics marketing at Intel, in a press briefing said (via Venture Beat), that the new Core H processors work with High Bandwidth Memory 2 (HBM2), a more power-efficient stacked memory technology that AMD pioneered and has since been turned into an industry standard.

Earlier in November, the chipset major first shared details about this new addition to the 8th-gen Intel Core processor family that brings together the Intel quad-core CPU, Radeon RX Vega M graphics and 4GB dedicated HBM2 using Intel's "Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge" (EMIB) technology.

Talking about the connectivity, both versions have dual Thunderbolt 3 ports and dual Gigabit Ethernet ports. It will help them to support the fast processing and graphics horsepower.

Content creators can also do more with this new processor, whether it's creating 3D images from scratch, editing videos seamlessly at home or on the go, or using the most popular creative applications.

Targeted at DIYers, these NUCs will be sold as bare-bones kits. The EMIB works like a smart high-speed information bridge between the GPU and HBM2. Devices, that used to be nearly 7 pounds heavy, 32 mm thick & lasted only 4 hours can now be slimmed under 17 mm while lasting almost 8 hours on a single charge alongside delivering next-level performance.

Intel is saying that there will be new products from HP and Dell featuring the new Core processors. The 8th Gen Intel® Core™ vPro™ platform will be introduced as an exclusive business platform. The new Intel mini computer is based on the same chip.
