    Nice. This solves most of my problem with Intel products. I finally have Intel products I can recommend to average regular everyday people again...

      Is Meltdown bug fixed is those processors?

        Today Intel has released the first of these products targeting notebooks, mini PCs, and 2-in-1s. There initially are two lines both featuring 8th Gen Cores. One lines features Radeon RX Vega M GL Graphics with an overall TDP of 65 Watts and the other features Radeon RX Vega M GH Graphics at a 100W TDP and is unlocked.
        100W TDP for a CPU targeted at "notebooks, mini PCs, and 2-in-1s"?
        You need some serious cooling solution to be able to handle that in that formfactor, but if the iMac Pro can it's probably not impossible just very expensive.

          The iMac Pro probably handles it the same way the MacBook Pro does.. By throttling if you use the power it has for more than a second at a time.

            Well, that is not just CPU... maybe picture could says more than words You should count how much on normal boards CPU+GPU+GDDR5 use, let alone would be much bigger and for that perf would probably eat even 200 W

              It will be quite exciting to see these Core i7 8809G, i7 8709G, i7 8705G, and i8305G parts with their Kaby Lake cores and Radeon graphics. The Kabylake processors are all quad core / eight thread designs and CPU turbo frequencies that go up near and above 4GHz.
              Kaby Lake or Coffee Lake (8th gen)?

                Kaby.

                  Sure, but that's 200W which are spread onto multiple components, so maybe 65W for the CPU, 80W for the GPU and a few watts for the GDDR5.
                  It's a lot easier to cool two 65W components than to cool one 100W component.

                    Why exactly about this is recommendable vs what Intel has been doing? For most people, Intel's GPUs are plenty good enough for everyday tasks. Obviously for gamers it's not sufficient but there have been discrete graphics for Intel laptops. Aside from being on the same chip (but not the same die), these Vega M graphics aren't really any different than any other discrete mobile GPU.
