Intel Kaby Lake Changes - Episode 118

Sunday Sep 4, 2016 (01:22:12)


This week, Avram Piltch discusses the new line of Intel processors. Kaby Lake brings the 7th generation of Intel's Core I processors. These new chips bring faster speeds and higher turbo speeds. The stranger change, though, is in the Core m series of processors. These lower power chips often cost more and perform lower than their traditional counterparts, but will be lumped in with them. Intel Core m5 and Core m7 will now be called Core i5 and Core i7, making for market confusion. Making the decision even stranger is Core m3 will retain its name.
