It sounds crazy, but it’s true: Arch-rivals AMD and Intel have teamed up to co-design an Intel Core microprocessor with a custom AMD Radeon graphics core inside the processor package, aimed at bringing top-tier gaming to thin-and-light notebook PCs.

Executives from both AMD and Intel told PCWorld that the combined AMD-Intel chip will be an “evolution” of Intel’s 8th-generation, H-series Core chips, with the ability to power-manage the entire module to preserve battery life. It’s scheduled to ship as early as the first quarter of 2018.

Hmmm I wonder how this is going to end. I mean I can see Nvidia crying....
We'll seeing dual graphics solutions like APU and AMD GPU on Intel. I bet boards manufacturers can add nvidia gpu on the same board along with it. So, we have two/three GPUs on the board itself, now we need 3 drivers to update gpu and co-exist w/o wrecking the OS.
I think Vega packs more punch than nvidia that could be the reason for Intel teaming up with AMD for iGPU because Intel previously used nvidia's IP for iGPU.

Yeah I think it bad enough having 2 graphic card drivers to update on a laptop, let alone 3.
