Intel revealed late last year, that they were working with AMD to bring out CPUs with Radeon Graphics in them.The i7 8809G seems to be that CPU.

Intel’s Indian website has published a small number of details regarding Intel’s first ‘Intel with Radeon RX Vega Graphics’ processor. Within the table of overclockable processors, accompanying the Core i9, Core i7-X and 8th Generation K processors is listed the Intel Core i7 8809G, a quad-core processor with two sets of graphics options listed.

The Core i7 8809G is a quad-core processor with hyperthreading, supporting a 3.1 GHz base frequency, having an 8 MB L3 cache, a 100W ‘Target’ TDP, and supporting two channels of DDR4-2400. Intel lists both sets of graphics: the integrated graphics (iGPU, or IGP) as ‘Intel HD Graphics 630′, and the package graphics (pGPU) as ‘Radeon RX Vega M GH Graphics’.

Interesting. Basically, even though the CPU has an 8000 series name, it is by all accounts a 7th Gen i7 7700k with a VEGA GPU ‘glued’ to it. With CES next week we are sure to find more about this product in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more info
