Intel targets VR market with 8th gen Core processors and mini-PC NUC system

The new Intel chips integrate AMD's (Advanced Micro Devices) Radeon RX Vega graphics. With a new slim design they can now fit in devices which are 17mm slim.

The GH variant has 24 compute units and can be clocked up to 4.2GHz, while the GL variant packs 20 compute units and can be clocked up to 4.1GHz for the i7 model and 3.8GHz for the i5. AMD further mentions that the Radeon Vega Mobile GPU will contest with Nvidia's GTX-10 series. While NUC8i7HVK is based on the unlocked version of 8th Gen Intel Core CPU with Radeon RX Vega M GH, the second version uses Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics.
