No Intel CPUs with “Vega Inside” are coming soon

 
Yesterday the following image leaked online, with Intel’s corporate styling and the term “Vega Inside”. This slide sent the internet on fire with new rumours that Intel would be licensing GPU tech from AMD, despite recent confirmations to the contrary. 
 
The usual rumour mills alleged that Intel was creating a mobile CPU with a Vega GPU to a future mobile CPU, given the use of the term “mobile performance” after the term “Vega Inside”, though the truth behind the image is something that is interesting, but has absolutely nothing to do with any of these recent rumours.

This image is from an employee appreciation campaign from Intel, which highlights the achievements of Intel’s staff by using the standard Intel “X Inside, Y Outside” marketing formula. See an example of this below.  

So what about Vega? Well, in this case, the image is about an Intel employee called Vega, who seemingly works as part of Intel’s mobile team. This means that this has nothing to do with AMD’s Vega architecture, which means that we should not expect Intel CPUs with Gaming-oriented levels of GPU performance anytime soon.  

From the start, it was pretty obvious that these rumours were false, as even if Intel licensed AMD’s technology they would not market it as such, using their own brand name rather than give their competitor a huge PR boost. We are also yet to see Vega-based APUs from AMD yet, which makes it far too soon for Intel to be preparing their own, again giving these rumours a red flag.
