Kaby Lake starts strong as Intel retools PC strategy



Intel’s upcoming 7th Generation Core processor family, code-named Kaby Lake, is off to a quick start.

More than 400 devices with Intel’s upcoming chip design will reach the market, said Navin Shenoy, corporate vice president and general manager for Intel’s Client Computing Group.

One of those devices will be Asus’ Surface-like Transformer 3, which will ship in the third quarter starting at US$799. The device has a 12.6-inch screen that displays images at a resolution of 2880 x 1920 pixels. It weighs 695 grams and is 6.9 millimeters thick. The device has a 13-megapixel camera, and it can be configured with a 512GB SSD and up to 8GB RAM.

Shenoy, speaking during a keynote at the Computex trade show in Taipei, also showed a 2-in-1 made by Compal during the keynote. It’s not clear if the first Kaby Lake chips to reach PCs will be low-power Core M or the faster Core i chips.
