AMD Project Quantum has an Intel Core i7 CPU

Looks like AMD is going to sell Intel processors! Previous reports about AMD's Quantum Project being an all-AMD system were wrong, the firm has revealed more details and it appears they're going for an Intel Core i7 processor. AMD claims they picked the Core i7 processor because they believe this is the perfect choice for gamers.

It's a very understandable choice as Intel's CPUs are capable of delivering more performance and draw less power - but still it's a bit strange to see AMD adopting a high-end CPU from its rival.

AMD claims its watercooled small form factor gaming PC will be capable of delivering 4K gaming at 60fps. The system features an Intel Core i7 series processor and AMD's dual-GPU Fiji graphics card, details about the motherboard, storage and memory weren't revealed.
As far as specifications are concerned, AMD confirmed that the Project Quantum PC houses an Intel Core i7 processor. The reason AMD said themselves for using an Intel based processor is that they think that a Intel Core i7 processor is perfect choice for gamers. It could be seen that AMD didn’t make any significant gains in the CPU department and their Zen core doesn’t hits the market until 2016.

To make a small form factor design that goes in harmony with their ultra compact Fiji based cards, the Intel Core i7 processor is the perfect companion for this PC. The graphics side will be powered by the company’s latest Radeon R9 Fury X2 graphics cards but the card can also incorporate other Fiji based GPUs in single and dual configurations. This makes the PC, a 16 TFlops compute processing juggernaut. There’s no word on memory, storage and what motherboard has been used but it could be a mini-ITX board with up to 32 GB of memory support. The demo video showed an ASRock Z97 ITX motherboard with a Devil’s Canyon (Core i7-4790K) processor.
