Intel might use Radeon
In recent times, allegations have revealed that Intel and AMD are in talks with each other. Now, it is said that the negotiations between both companies have come to a positive conclusion and that Intel may have agreed to use Radeon technology in their processors. However, this license agreement does not mean Intel will actually use a Radeon graphics chip in its new processors.
The American processor company actually has a similar license agreement with Nvidia. This agreement is intended to protect its own graphical cores from legal scrutiny and will come to an end in March 2017. So the deal between those companies could have been made just to be an alternative to Nvidia. In this case, AMD can also receive a payment from Intel. However, this will not change the graphics technology of Intel processors.
The other possibility is more exciting, but less likely to happen. It is the chance for us to see Intel processors with Radeon graphics core. However, this option is not very logical for both companies. Intel will be too dependent on AMD in this case, and AMD will have given Intel the advantage for its APUs.
On the other hand, AMD’s payment for every Intel processor sold may be an interesting and financial option. Both companies have not officially confirmed the rumors yet. However, it is undeniable that Intel needs graphics and AMD needs money.
