Intel's next-gen Kaby Lake-G processors might be something to get excited about for Chipzilla, with the latest rumors pointing towards Intel's upcoming Kaby Lake-G architecture featuring a massive integrated GPU, with HBM2 technology.

The leaked slides tease that Kaby Lake-G will feature a massive iGPU, all built on the 14nm process, and a dedicated PCIe link to a separate discrete GPU with HBM2 tech. The news was revealed during Intel's recent Technology and Manufacturing Day, with two SKUs teased on the BGA design: one for embedded systems, and the other for next-gen laptops.

Intel's next-gen Kaby Lake-G processors will reportedly come in 4C/8T with a 65W and 100W model, and since there's no on-package cache, the 65/100W TDPs are weird - but, it makes sense if they rock powerful integrated GPU + HBM2 tech. The separate GPU will be connected to the CPU through a dedicated PCIe 3.0 x8 interface, while the HBM2 memory will be the main on-board VRAM for the iGPU.

There's not much else known on the Kaby Lake-G series, but we do know that it is being made as a 2-chip platform - meaning there will be the main CPU, and a separate PCH on the motherboard.
