It has recently circulated a report which suggests that Intel is preparing to announce and launch the H-series processor Kaby Lake, suitable for use in laptops like the MacBook Pro.
According to DigiTimes, the first H-series processors Kaby Lake quad - core gaming notebooks intended for high - end ultrabook - class machines like the MacBook Pro, will be revealed at the Consumer Electronics Show in January.
The data were obtained from the offers of Asus, Gigabyte and Micro Star that are preparing for their announcement at the fair, using the new processors.
While details about the new range of Kaby Lake processors were well known long before the official launch, the new line of processors was only announced in August. The range of chips specific to mobile and low power equipment are already available.
The Kaby Lake line finally have five classes of processors, with two classes for devices such as the Retina MacBook and MacBook Air; One for laptops like the MacBook Pro; And two for high-power workstations and desktop computers.
In September, news came that manufacturers already had the first suitable processors for desktops in limited quantities and before the official announcement of the chip. Typically, samples for computer designers such as Apple, were delivered a few months before the official announcement of the new chip litter, with enough capacity to produce large scale months later.
This would be a major leap forward for Apple's current computers, as Intel's H-series Kaby Lake series processors would deliver more power than their predecessors, apart from consuming less power.
