The production of the new Santa Clara chip will begin within the quarter, along with that of the Apollo Lake CPUs for tablets and 2-in-1
At the Computex in Taipei in progress these days could not miss Intel, which during the event announced its expected plans for the future. In particular, the Santa Clara group confirmed that its own 7th generation Core processors, code-named Kaby Lake, will be released this year: the new CPUs will be built with the same 14-nanometer production process that characterized the two previous generations of products in the house, and production will begin within this quarter.
Together with Kaby Lake you will also begin the realization of Apollo Lake low-end CPU, already announced in April and that should give an edge to a category of gadgets in strong growth: that of the 2-in-1 tablets, which is holding back the free fall in the tablet sector and helping to give a little respite to a busy PC market.
The large volumes are obviously not the only interest of Intel, which also showed at Computex Core i7-6950X Extreme Edition, his first 10 core CPU dedicated to desktop computers: a monster of power that let aquiline come into the mouth of many enthusiasts but that would hardly conquer the masses because of a price set at 1723 dollars.
