Intel’s Kaby Lake Processors With AMD Radeon Vega M Discontinued

In what appears to be an obvious move, Intel has decided to discontinue its lineup of Kaby Lake G processors which come with Radeon RX Vega M graphics. The company issued a statement claiming they preferred their in-house graphics engine over AMD. With Intel’s Gen11 integrated graphics nearly doubled the performance over its previous iterations, we saw this coming.

“Intel is refocusing its product portfolio. Our 10th Gen Intel Core processors with Iris Plus graphics are built on the new Gen11 graphics architecture that nearly doubled graphics performance. We have more in store from our graphics engine that will bring further enhancements to PCs in the future.”

The Kaby Lake G lineup had Radeon RX Vega M integrated graphics for better performance over Intel’s options. However, Gen11 graphics that come equipped with the 10th Generation of Intel CPUs are an incremental upgrade over the older processors. Moreover, in-house options give Intel greater liberty to make major design changes.

Processors affected by Intel’s discontinuation

With the Intel’s Xe graphics lineup right around the corner, we believe Intel has something big to offer. It would be interesting to see integrated graphics performance for the upcoming Intel processors, now that they have a full-fledged in-house graphics department.
