One thing caught our attention, the Intel(R) HD Graphics Gen9 with 694C:C0 graphics. It took us some time to ask round, and it turns out that a Kaby Lake with AMD graphics combination might be the right lead.
We already told you that Apple is likely to be the customer who nicely asked Intel to make such a Frankenstein chip. What Apple wants, Apple gets is the mantra and it is very hard to say no to hundreds of thousand sales guaranteed by the Apple logo used on any of their products.
It is clear that the platform has two separate GPUs, the Intel HD Graphics Gen9 and 694C:C0. The latter is probably one of AMD's GPUs and it's hard to tell if this is all integrated solution sitting in the same package, or rather two separate chip platform. We would go for the all integrated solution, as it makes more sense and saves a lot of space and BOM cost.
Sysoft goes one step forward calling the platform “Intel Kaby lake Client platform Kaby lake Client System (Intel Kaby lake DDR4 RVP17)”. It is listed as a desktop platform too.
GFX data base is very certain that 694C:C0 is an AMD device. This is not by any means a confirmation but it is the first time that we saw an Intel Kaby Lake CPU matched with both Intel Gen 9 graphics and AMD GPU. If you are an investor and looking for ways to make money, bear in mind that we are a news service and not any kind of advisory board. You do it at your own risk and leave us out of it.
We would expect this Kaby Lake with 694C:C0 solution to ship later this year.
