Intel EOLs Kaby Lake-G with Radeon Graphics

At the beginning of last year, Intel surprised us with the introduction of the Kaby Lake-G. This multi-chip-module (MCM) combined a quad-core Intel 8th Gen Core processor with an AMD Radeon RX Vega M graphics solution. There were a couple of SKUs, with some models having a 65W TDP and others a 100W TDP. This odd partnership is now coming to an end as Intel announced the Kaby Lake-G will soon hit the end of its lifecycle. The chip giant is taking orders until January 31, 2020 and will ship the last Kaby Lake-G parts on July 31, 2020.

It was an interesting product but it did not see widespread adoption. Now Intel is dropping the AMD-made graphics as its own integrated graphics have made a huge leap forward. The Gen11 graphics found in Ice Lake are a lot faster than what Intel had before and better things will arrive next year with the Xe-based Gen12 graphics on Tiger Lake.
Apparently Intel has no plans to bring newer generations of the chip to market. In response to our queries, Intel released the following statement to Tom's Hardware:

"Intel is refocusing its product portfolio. Our 10th Gen Intel Core processors with Iris Plus graphics are built on the new Gen11 graphics architecture that nearly doubled graphics performance. We have more in store from our graphics engine that will bring further enhancements to PCs in the future."
