There’s apparently an image floating around that there is an Intel chip with Vega graphics inside. Yes – that AMD Vega. There’s this little blurry image that makes out the word “VEGA INSIDE”, referencing Intel’s iconic whatever-Inside phrase.
There were rumors that Intel is indeed working with AMD to have Radeon graphics integrated into Intel’s chips, as a replacement for their iGPUs. We do not have any other information about it, but now we have the slightest amount of information available.
When it comes to these things, it’s always good to take it with a pinch of salt.
We’ll definitely update more when we have the information.
[UPDATE]: False alarm, guys!
Alright, this is a big false alarm, as it has recently been debunked that the “Vega Inside” is actually from Intel’s employee appreciation campaign, as explained by the Manifesto Agency.
It’s a campaign that takes a spin on Intel’s “X inside, Y outside” formula and applied it to employees.
The alleged leak we have is actually a coincidence – as the employee’s name is indeed Vega and his achievement is on mobile performance. What are the chances?
Like what we’ve always said, rumors are always to be taken with a pinch of salt – and one thing is for sure, AMD GPUs in Intel chips won’t be coming soon – if it’s true, that is.
