On this day, Apple officially announced the creation of its full line of Intel Core 7 known by many as Kaby Lake, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. There are more than 40 new performance processors in the family, which are based on Intel's 14-nanometer process technology, offering more speed, productivity and security than previous generations.
The new line of Kaby Lake processors is up to 20% faster in performance and portable games and 25% faster on desktop computers. These chips are also 65% faster in handling 4K and 360-degree video on laptops and 35% faster on desktop computers.
In terms of increased productivity, chips are able to provide a battery life of 10 hours and have a two - factor authentication for added security.
Among the chips announced today, several should be present in future releases of Mac.
Amid growing concern of the Cupertino company is losing interest in its lines of laptops and desktops, recent reports have suggested that we could see new iMacs and MacBooks as early as March. And Intel's announcement that it made about the availability of its new chip line adds weight to the theory.
It seems that Apple is preparing fully not only for a possible upgrade of its lines of laptops and desktop, as it is also expected to launch the iPhone 8, as well as a slight update of its smartwatch to implement improvements in autonomy Of the battery.
