Intel has launched its 7th generation core processors under U and Y series which are intended for the platforms that are light and thin like 2-in-ones and notebooks. The Company has already launched its first wave.
According to the company, Kaby Lake has been developed focusing on the “Immersive Web”. It is expected that processors for other platforms like Computers, Work Stations, Beefier Laptops, and others would be in the first quarter of the next year.
It is believed that video is the future of the Internet, so Kaby Lake is focused video. The company believes that the demand for the 4K content along with the 4K 360-degree video will increase in future.
So, this new processor has been equipped with dedicated hardware channels, so it is efficient enough to render and edit 4K. The highly developed video engine of this processor will also boost the battery life by 2.6x when 4K video is played with the specific codec. As per the Intel, the processor consumes only 0.5 W while decoding a 4K.
According to the Intel, this processor is efficient enough that you can render several 4K video streaming and web browsing or work simultaneously.
It has also been sported with turbo boost capability which is more responsive and capable of enhancing integral performance by 12 to 19 percent. It has an advanced Speed Shift Version that enhances the performance for a little period so whenever you need to boost the speed, you can do so.
The power consumption of the Y series CPU is just 4.5 watt, and it is configurable. The company can change it as per the requirement of the product design. These processors have been made thin to focus on thinnest tablets and laptops. One more feature of these processors is that they can work even without a cooling fan.
The company today has launched Dual Core i7-7500U 3.5 GHz and Core i5-7200U 3.1 GHz. They incorporate 2 CPU cores, Hyper-Threading, and DDR4 RAM.
