Intel has apparently launched new Kaby Lake CPU offerings for both the desktop and laptop platforms – without much fanfare. To be more specific, Intel’s newest processors are those that carry the Core i3, Kaby Lake-U, and Xeon E3 branding.
Intel’s new desktop-based Core i3 CPU offerings include the Core i3-7340, Core i3-7320T, Core i3-7120, and Core i3-7120T. One new feature about these processors is the fact that they come with “S-0” stepping – previous Core i3 CPUs used B-0 stepping instead. When it comes to specifications, the clock speeds of these CPUs range from 3.5GHz up to 4.2GHz.
Next up are Intel’s mobile CPU offerings. In total, the company has launched four brand new Kaby Lake-U mobile processors. These are the Core i3-7007U, Core i3-7110U, Core i5-7210U, and Core i7-7510U. All of Intel’s new mobile CPUs feature a base frequency clock that range anywhere from 2.1GHz up to 2.7GHz. Interestingly, these CPUs have a TDP rating of 15W across the board.
Finally, Intel has also debuted the Xeon E3-1285 v6 processor. Interestingly, this CPU is expected to be paired with Apple’s iMac as the highest-end offering processor. Its specifications include four CPU cores and eight threads; 4.1GHz (base) and 4.5GHz (boost) clock speeds; 8MB L3 cache; an Intel HD P630 iGPU; as well as a TDP rating of 91W.
Unfortunately, Intel has not given any details regarding the price and date of availability for all of its newest processors. That said, we do expect the blue company to announce these details soon.
