Intel reveals their 8th Gen Intel Core G-series processors with RX Vega M Graphics

Vega features - Dynamic power saving
One of the most interesting features of this product is its dynamic power tuning features, allowing OEMs to select an SDP (system design power) to regulate how much power the system uses. From here the SoC will dynamically shift power to the CPU and GPU to deliver optimal performance within a specific power envelope.
SDP is not the combined TDP of both products, though certain Intel G-series processors will be overclockable, both on the CPU and GPU side.
Intel's unique power saving system allows their custom SoC to deliver the same performance using 17.5 fewer wats than without it, offering an efficiency increase of 18%. This increase in efficiency is excellent news for those that want to save power, particularly mobile users who wish to increased battery life.
Both the Vega graphics unit and the Intel integrated graphics units on this SoC are enabled, allowing this SoC to support Intel QuickSync using the Intel iGPU as well as technologies like AMD FreeSync when using a display connected to the Radeon Vega graphics chip.
