Intel recently announced that their 7th Generation core chips named Kaby Lake is now available, and they are already shipping it to PC makers.
With this development, tablets and laptops with Kaby Lake chips should become available presumably by the holiday season.
Kaby Lake will be the successor to Skylake processors. Created under the foundation of its predecessor, the 14-nanometer Kaby Lake promises to bring users speed improvements and enhanced performance.
The 10-nanometer Canonlake was originally the successor for Skylake but Intel decided to delay its release until the second half of 2017 and unveiled Kaby Lake instead.
One of the first devices known to run Kaby Lake is the Asus Transformer 3. It has a 12.6-inch screen, weighs only 1.54 pounds, and has a tablet that is only 0.27 inches wide. It is slated to be available in the third quarter at a starting price of $799.
Other PC makers have yet to announced their Kaby Lake PCs but Intel said that 400 devices possessing the 7th Generation core chips should become available soon.
