The chip was on Sisoft as "Intel(R) HD Graphics Gen9; 694C:C0 (1720SP 47C 1GHz, 528kB L2, 10.4GB 800MHz)" but if you'll note the hardware ID "644C:C0" which is reportedly the hardware ID code for AMD. There is absolutely nothing known about this processor that is concrete, so treat this as a hot rumor - but the CPU is a 2T processor, presumably 2C/2T APU with AMD Radeon graphics. The rumors of the Intel/AMD GPU licensing deal could be true if this CPU is the real deal.
