The first reports of Intel using AMD's own Radeon graphics technology inside of one of their processors, we haven't been able to stop to think about the possibilities of Intel using AMD's GPU tech, and if they did - when would it happen.


Now it looks like Intel will be making a processors sometime this year with Radeon GPU technology, based on Intel's current Kaby Lake architecture. The news is coming from HardOCP boss Kyle Bennett, who has said Intel's new processor would be a multi-chip module (MCM) with a Radeon GPU die that is separate to the CPU die, and won't be on-die like Intel's current GPU tech.

Intel's upcoming Radeon-powered Kaby Lake CPU would be a mid-range part, so we could expect something in the 1080p 60FPS region for maybe $249? What do you think about pricing?
