According to reports coming from the Chinese supply chain, Intel is gearing up to release the H-series Kaby Lake processor, which is suitable for use in laptops like the MacBook Pro.
In a DigiTimes report it was stated that the first H-series quad-core processors intended for high-end gaming laptops and ultrabook-class machines like the MacBook Pro is going to be revealed at the January Consumer Electronics Show.
Consumer Electronics Show is one of the biggest consumer electronics and technology shows in that happen every year. In 2017 it is going to be held in Las Vegas in the month of January.
Nvidia's laptop-sized 1050 Graphic Processing Unit is expected to debut in laptops with the new Kaby Lake processors. A good distinct GPU will make a laptop much faster at graphics-intensive processes like games, but also image processing.
The 13-inch MacBook Pro is stuck with a Skylake chip and no discrete GPU that competitively-priced slightly heavier, while the Windows laptops will be packing a brand-new processor and graphics card.
While Kaby Lake's details had been known for some time before its official release, the line was only officially announced in August. Kaby Lake Chips in the line are suitable for mobile and lower-powered computers, reports Apple Insider.
For those who are unfamiliar with the processor, Kaby Lake uses a 14-nanometer process by Intel. Its predecessors are the Skylake and the Broadwell. The processor supports a 1.2 DisplayPort, a 3.1 USB, and a Thunderbolt 3, reports MacRumors.
The Kaby Lake will have five classes of processors, with two classes for devices like the Retina MacBook and the MacBook Air; one for laptops like the MacBook Pro; and two spanning servers, high-power workstations, and desktops.
Upcoming MacBook Pro is expected to have an update on its processor in 2017. Though there are still no official details on this news, but it can be recalled that the Pro didn't wait for Intel's 7th Generation Core as Apple had released the new Pro line last October.
