Intel Corp. (NASDAQ: INTC) announced on Monday that it has teamed with Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (NASDAQ:AMD) to deliver a Intel’s core processor and AMD’s graphic processor. Intel shares were up 1 percent and AMD shares were up 8 percent at open on Monday.
The two want to team up to deliver a stronger combination of performance as well as a small light chip that would be able handle high performance gaming requirements for laptops.
The two will combine Intel’s Core H-series processor, second generation High Bandwidth Memory and AMD’S Radeon graphics chip all within a single processor chip.
It will be the competitors’ first collaboration since the 1980s, said analyst Patrick Moorhead, who told the Wall Street Journal.
Previously, it was a heated competition in the market as Intel controlled 80 percent of the revenue alone in processor chips, according to the Journal.
Intel and AMD seem to be collaborating together for competition against competitors such as Nvidia. All three companies both develop and manufacturer computer processor chips, but Nvidia has taken the step further such as integrating its technology into artificial intelligence for self driving cars.
But for consumers, this will heavily benefit them as well. Most typical gaming PC builds require a separate processor along with a graphics cards, but with this new two in one chip, it’ll use less space and overheat less as well.
