Leaked slide hints at Intel Mobile CPU with Vega GPU (UPDATE: fake news)

UPDATE: Tech Critter got to the bottom of this rumor and discovered it's basically fake news. The slide is real but it's not a promotional image for an upcoming processor. The real purpose is very different, it's part of Intel's Employee Appreciation Campaign and "Vega" seems to refer to an employee named Vega.
From all the campaign posters we've seen in the photos above, it looks like Intel is pushing its company campaign in a fashion of "[employee's name] Inside, [division name] outside." The Vega Inside image we saw yesterday is actually a poster featuring one of Intel's employee who just happens to have Vega as his name and he works in the mobile performance division - such coincidence right?

Original post:
One rumor that stubbornly refuses to die is the talk about Intel working on a processor with AMD Radeon based graphics. Several months ago, Intel publicly stated that recent rumors about it having licensed AMD's graphics technology are untrue, but even that wasn't enough to put the rumor to bed.

Now there's a leaked, low-quality slide over at WCCF Tech that seems to point to an upcoming Intel mobile processor with integrated AMD Vega-based graphics. One possibility here would be that Intel is using a Vega die in a multi-chip module (MCM) package. That would mean AMD is selling parts to Intel, and wouldn't require Intel to license AMD's technology.
Intel is using the “Vega Inside” branding which means one of many things. It can simply mean that Intel will have discrete Vega solutions on laptops that use their mobile processors but that may not be the case. My take on this is that Intel is actually using an on-package solution or on die MCM chip design as the one they had unveiled during their Technology and Manufacturing Day keynote.
I guess we will find out soon, but until then I would take this news with a grain of salt.
