Hewlett-Packard is already gearing up for the holiday shopping season, and the company has four new products that it is unleashing on the public. They include the second generation Spectre x360 convertible, the ENVY Laptop, ENVY AIO 27 and the ENVY 27 Display. We’ll kick things off with the Spectre x360, which is now sporting 7th generation Intel Kaby Lake processors. Thanks to the more efficient Core processors and a larger 57.8 Whr battery, the Spectre x360 can now last 25 percent longer per charge, bringing total runtime to 15 hours. HP has also made the bezels even smaller by trimming 10mm from the right and left sides of the display. Couple that with a thinner chassis (made possible... Read more...
Although they were initially announced all the way back at Computex, ASUS held a casual event in NYC this past Wednesday (Oct. 5) to officially launch an array of new products, including the ZenBook 3, ZenWatch 3, ZenPhone 3, and Transformer Pro 3 and Mini. We’ve got some initial coverage of all of those products here at HotHardware if you’d like some additional background on the full line-up, including hands-on video of the latest ZenBook and smartwatch. However, we couldn’t wait to dive in a little deeper with the ZenBook 3 for a couple of reasons. First off, the ZenBook 3 is the first Ultrabook to hit the lab built around Intel’s brand-new Kaby Lake-based 7th Generation Core series processors.... Read more...

Move over Microsoft, Chinese rival (and hardware partner, as it were) Lenovo has another potential Surface killer on its hands. This time it's the Miix 710, a rather sleek looking detachable sporting a 12.2-inch In Plane Switching (IPS) display with a 2160x1440 resolution (3:2 aspect ratio) powered by Intel's recently introduced Kaby Lake architecture. Like the Surface , Lenovo gives users a limited range of passively cooled processor options. In this case, users can choose from an Intel Core m3-7Y30 SoC (1GHz to 2.6GHz), Core i5-7Y54 (1.2GHz to 3.2GHz), and Core i7-7Y75 (1.3GHz to 3.6GHz). All three processor options are dual-core parts with Hyper Threading support, 4MB of SmartCache, and a... Read more...
There has been quite a bit of noise and plenty of confusion online lately, since news broke that Microsoft would only be fully supporting Intel’s and AMD’s next-generation processor microarchitectures – codenamed Kaby Lake and Zen, respectively – with Windows 10. Some publications and scores of readers pegged the decision as a pure marketing move by Microsoft and derided the company for forcing users to upgrade to Windows 10.On the surface, we understand why such a statement would make some people cringe. Not supporting Windows 7, which remains the second most popular desktop OS with enthusiasts, or the much-maligned Windows 8, means consumers will technically have fewer options and less choice...

Now that Intel has officially pushed Kaby Lake out the door, we can expect to see plenty of announcements from its hardware partners on new products. That is exactly the case with regards to Razer, which has announced a refresh to its 12.5-inch Blade Stealth notebook. Razer has made a notable brain transplant, swapping out the previous Skylake-based processor for a new 2.7GHz Intel Core i7-7500U. Razer also amped up the memory and storage subsystems of the Blade Stealth, so you can now spec the machine with up to 16GB of LPDDR3-1866MHz memory and up to a 1TB PCIe SSD. As for the display, base systems are equipped with a QHD (2560 x 1440) panel, while you can also opt for a 4K UHD (3840 x 2160)... Read more...
Intel lifted the curtain on its Kaby Lake architecture earlier this week, its second consecutive "tock" in what used to be its "tick-tock" release cadence and also its 7th generation Core architecture. While that dominated the headlines, Intel also launched its budget-oriented Apollo Lake line, which is the latest generation of its low-power Atom family. Apollo Lake is the successor to Braswell and is built on the same 14nm manufacturing process. It uses Goldmont core and will slip into low-cost devices, such as budget-priced 2-in-1 systems and affordable laptops. While that doesn't sound particularly exciting (from an enthusiast standpoint, anyway), Apollo Lake gives Intel an opportunity to... Read more...
Lenovo is refreshing its 2-in-1 convertible notebook lineup with the introduction of the new, high-end Yoga 910. The 3.04-lb aluminum unibody device combines striking good looks with plenty of power for mobile professionals. At the heart of the Yoga 910 are Intel’s new range of Kaby Lake processors. The convertible is available with up to a seventh generation Core i7 processor, which can be backed with up to 16GB of memory. Integrated Intel HD Graphics are all that you’re going to find in this machine, which is fine for the target audience. Storage options are plentiful, with Lenovo offering customers up to a 1TB PCIe SSD to handle all of your data needs. As for the display, you have two options... Read more...
Intel 7th Gen Core Series Kaby Lake WaferIntel is readying a new family of processors based on its next-gen Kaby Lake microarchitecture. We’ve heard quite a bit about Kaby Lake over the last few months, and were even able to show you it in action last week while covering IDF, but today we’ve got many more details to share on the microarchitecture that will be foundation of Intel’s upcoming 7th Generation Core processors.If you’re unfamiliar with Kaby Lake, it is the follow-up product to last year’s Skylake. Kaby Lake borrows heavily from Skylake; its CPU cores, cache structure, and graphics engine are similar, and Kaby Lake is still manufactured using a 14nm process. There have been a number...

Overwatch Running On Intel Kaby Lake-Based, Next-Gen Dell XPS 13 This morning’s opening keynote at the annual Intel Developers Forum was rather eventful. In addition to unveiling the Project Alloy merged reality headset, the Project Aero Drone platform, and a number of maker-oriented devices, Intel also showed off its next-generation Kaby Lake-based 7th Generation Core processors and some new virtual reality editing tools built into Epic’s Unreal Engine. Kaby Lake is the follow-up product to current, 6th Generation Skylake-based Core processors. With Kaby Lake, however, Intel is adding native support for USB 3.1 Gen 2, along with a more powerful graphics architecture for improved 3D performance... Read more...
Intel continues to crank out new Next Unit of Computing (NUC) models and has no plans of slowing down. Just the opposite, the Santa Clara chip maker is readying a new generation of its small form factor (SFF) PCs based on its unreleased Kaby Lake and Apollo Lake processors, along with modern amenities like USB-C connectivity.There's a lot of nomenclature being thrown around with these NUCs so let's take a moment clarify some things. Kaby Lake is Intel's next generation processor architecture, one that disrupts (perhaps permanently) Intel's "tick-tock" release cadence. With Intel having to push back the release of its 10nm Cannonlake architecture until 2017, it decided to fill the gap with another... Read more...
It's only a matter of time before Microsoft releases a second generation Surface Book line, and rumor has it the Surface Book 2 is slated for a June release. Unless you need a detachable 2-in-1 right this very moment, this is one of those times we'd suggest waiting to see how things shake out with the new hardware.June is just around the corner, and if the rumor holds true, the Surface Book 2 will bring a 13.5-inch touchscreen display with a 4K Ultra HD resolution (3840 x 2160) to the detachable 2-in-1 party. The current generation Surface Book also boasts a 13.5-inch touchscreen display, but it packs less pixels with a 3,000 x 2000 resolution.The unofficial reports tipping Microsoft's plans...

A leaked roadmap that purportedly shows Intel's planned release schedule for its mobile processors reaffirms what we already know, which is that Kaby Lake is coming to town later this year followed by Cannonlake late next year. Counting currently available Skylake CPUs, Intel is looking at three generations of processors between now and the end of 2017Chinese-language website BenchLife.info posted the leaked mobile platform roadmap, which shows Intel continuing to ship 14nm Skylake processors up until the third quarter of 2016. That's when Intel's 14nm Kaby Lake will take over, arriving just in time for the back-to-school shopping rush. You can expect to see Kaby Lake highlighted in a variety... Read more...
