Intel introduces its new generation of processors Kaby Lake

Intel has announced the launch of the seventh generation processors Kaby Lake. It is a renewal of Skylake with the same 14nm technology, but with some improvements in efficiency and performance. The chip is intended to be a bridge until it reaches the 10nm with Cannonlake planned for 2017.

The main market for the first Kaby Lake is laptops and the 2-in-1 may be equipped from September. This is a good opportunity for Apple to renew their MacBook Pro or to be the choice of Microsoft at its next Surface, which in its previous version with Skylake had (like other manufacturers) some problems with power management. The version for desktop computers or laptops to play of the Kaby Lake is not expected until early next year.

The advantage of Kaby Lake is especially efficiency. Intel says that these processors are 10 times more efficient in terms of performance per watt than the first generation. It also offers a processing performance 12% higher than its predecessors. It remains to be seen if the Intel numbers move to something tangible for the user.

The Kaby Lake processors have native support for Thunderbolt 3, improve performance when playing 4K UHD videos and according to Intel also it will help to improve the duration of the battery.

Surely the majority of portable devices that we see from September equipped with a processor M3 Core m3, Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 of the Kaby Lake generation. It is possible for us to see a laptop with a thickness of less than 10 millimeters.
