Intel Kaby Lake New CPU Series Is Now Official
Intel has made the official announcement of the new range of processors ‘Kaby Lake’ during CES 2017, which is being held in Las Vegas. In total, there are more than 40 new processors between Intel Core and Intel Xeon for workstations.
Kaby Lake arrives to replace Skylake with the same manufacturing process of 14nm, in a kind of intermediate road until the arrival of Cannonlake, that will have about 10nm. These processors not only match the retail sector (public in general), they will also be present in the sector of signage, industrial IoT or medicine.
A glimpse of what is coming:

Kaby Lake Series
With a 4.5W TDP, it will be clearly focused on low power consumption for 2-in-1 devices, detachables, and Compute Stick.
The U series boosts throughput and the TDP to 15W, still focused on portable 2-in-1 and mini-PCs devices.
This series will have a TDP of 45W and will offer the highest performance for laptops and mobile workstations, at the cost of greater consumption.
It will be used for desktop, All-in-One, and mini-PCs.
The K series will be the one that offers the most power (as was already the case in previous generations) and it is these processors that will come with the multiplier unlocked for incredible overclocking capabilities.
In the official statement, Intel highlights the following:
…up to 20% performance on gaming notebooks; 25% on desktop computers; With 4K and 360-degree content, users can expect performance up to 65% faster on laptops and up to 35% on desktops.
Let’s see what comes up from Intel, we’ll surely review their new CPUs and we can’t wait for that! Also, we’re keeping an eye on AMD and their new CPU Series that are yet to come to see if they make competence to Intel this just started 2017!
