Is there both Intel and Radeon RX Vega GPU technology on the same chip?
I have long expected that the two companies can cooperate once and combine their technologies to create an amazing product. Now it is really realized.

In the first quarter of 2018, Intel announced this special eighth-generation Core processor, they all have a feature, the model suffix is G, Core i7 has four, Core i5 only one. CPU only on the frequency and cache The difference is all quad-core and eight-thread. It is the first mobile-based version of the eighth-generation Core processor. It also integrates Intel HD graphics 630. The GPU part is a customized version of Radeon RX Vega M GH / GL provide. GH has 24 groups of CU computing units, while GL has only 20 groups, the frequency will be lower, integrating 4GB of HBM 2 memory, 1024bit width, 800MHz, 1536 stream processors.

The chip in the figure below can be seen that a total of three modules (covered by a silver case) are packaged, from left to right, HBM2 memory,Vega M series GPU and 8 generation Core CPU.

Intel uses its own core EMIB technology to package Core CPU, Vega display chip and 4GB of video memory. Compared with the traditional CPU + GPU configuration, Intel's solution has three aspects:
First of all, on the CPU, GPU, flash memory and other key components have the ability to use the highest level of components in the current industry, to minimize the shortboard.

Second, after stacking flash memory using HBM2 technology, Intel said it saved 1900 square millimeters of motherboard area.

Finally, the highly integrated computing core allows OEMs to more efficiently integrate thermal layouts while producing end devices, helping to create smaller devices.


There are two versions of Vega, one is Radeon RX Vega M GH, the other is Radeon RX Vega M GL, M is a mobile version, G is the product of Kaby Lake-G series. H and L represent high power consumption and low power consumption respectively. Intel's dynamic tuning technology packs the CPU and GPU power consumption together, and Intel CPUs and Vega GPUs share a high TDP total.
If you use a traditional split design, you need to separately design the power supply lines for the CPU and GPU to meet their peak power consumption requirements. As a result, a large number of ICs and circuits need to be laid out on the PCB, resulting in a much larger PCB area. And the respective margins of the CPU and GPU are designed to be wasted in use and cannot be called from each other.
The Kaby Lake G Series combines a two-way power supply design and provides 100W (8709G) shared power, allowing the CPU or GPU to fully capture the full power and performance.
For example, when playing a game, the performance required by the CPU is not very high, and a large amount of power consumption (more than 75W) can be allocated to the GPU. When data is compressed, packaged, and processed, more than 50W of power can be allocated to the CPU to ensure fast and stable completion.

Intel G series 8th generation Core chip will have two graphics cards, and also supports graphics card crossfire mode, which allows two graphics cards to work together, although 1+1 is basically less than 2 in the crossfire, it is difficult to achieve 200% performance. However, it still greatly exceeds the performance of separate graphics cards. They will also support Oculus Rift and Windows mixed reality. In fact, Radeon RX Vega M GH is already a unique category. It requires driver support. Vega specializes in providing Radeon to Intel. RX Vega M Settings driver software, Intel's Radeon driver will be released at

This Kaby Lake G combines Intel's eighth-generation Core and Radeon™ RX Vega 64 graphics technology, At the same time, the efficiency of the Intel CPU architecture and the stability and power of the GPU are taken into account.! There is also a small size, which will create a new era of mini pc running games.
Beelink uses the Core i7 8709G and Core i5 8305G in the intel Kaby lake G series to create two high-performance gaming MINI PCs, That is Kaby G5 and Kaby G7, and the configuration is as follows.

As far as the configuration is concerned, it is already the mid-to-high end configuration of the computer on the market. Compared with the same configuration, there is Intel NUC. Kaby G can expand the 2.5-inch hard disk, but Intel does not.
We first got the prototype test of Kaby G7 products from Beelink. This is the product that has pre-installed SSD and memory and system. Let's enjoy this product.

At first glance, it is very stunning. The black tone is matched with the all-metal casing, giving a calm atmosphere. Although it is a metal casing, it has no metal icy touch. The corners of the metal are rounded. Using the latest matte plating process, the delicate matte without losing the metal texture, with red buttons and vents, with a touch of agility in the calm, Is a very beautiful mini PC

We actually took 2 photos with the iPhone X phone for size reference, not only the performance is strong, its size is really not big, the three-dimensional size is the only 173x153x65mm, compared to the desktop or notebook is much smaller.


The top has a domineering skull pattern. The skull eyes can be Produce three different colors of light, which looks very cool at night

The front is very simple, with only a round start button, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a logo.


The richness of the interface on the back will surprise you, Speaker*1、Mic*1、USB 3.0*5、HDMI2.0*2、DP1.4*1、DP1.2*1、RJ45 LAN*1,DC Jack*1(19V-9.47A/180W), there is a security lock hole, it is worth mentioning that 2HDMI + 2DP interface supports 4 screens simultaneously display
The richness of the interface on the back will surprise you,

Next is the hardware and performance testing, try it, you will know.
First verify with CPU-Z

Beelink kaby lake G7

Compared with Core i7-7700k, the difference is not too big, G7 can be overclocked

After overclocking, the CPU's main frequency reaches 4290MHz, and the single core performance has exceeded the Core i7-7700k.

Then, GPU-Z graphics test, you can see that the processor has two display chips, the two GPUs are basically in the same block, it is accidental, Radeon RX Vega M GH graphics card 1536 SP unit no problem, 24x64=1536

3D mark 11

3DMark 11 is based on Futuremark's native DX11 engine, which can comprehensively examine the overall graphics performance of the DX11 PC gaming platform.

Through the 3D MARK 11 test, we can compare the GTX 1060+Core i7-8750H, The performance of Radeon RX Vega M GH is between our common GTX 1050Ti and GTX 1060, which translates to the Radeon RX Vega M camp, which is between RX570 and RX580. The scores of the difference are very small, but the size of the Kaby lake G is very small.  Can be called a real high-performance MINI game PC
