Short Bytes: Intel has announced its next generation processors based on the 14-nm Kaby Lake architecture. The 7th Gen Core chips support viewing and editing of 4K UHD content without the need for a discrete graphics chip. Intel expects computers packed with Kaby Lake chips to hit the markets by next month.

Intel Inc. has finally put the curtains off its 7th Gen Intel Core processors based on the 14-nm Kaby Lake architecture. Continuing its legacy of launching more powerful processors in every successive Core series, Intel has enabled the Kaby Lake-based chips to have improved support for 4K UHD and 360-degree video content.

As Intel demonstrated earlier, this would allow you to stream 4K videos as well as edit and share them right out of the box. You can combine multiple 4K video streams and watch a UHD movie at the same time.

The 7th Gen Core processors include upgraded versions of Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, and Core m3. Intel has managed to improve the performance and reduce the power consumption at the same time. The Kaby Lake processors can improve the battery life up to 3-times when 4K videos are played on the computer.

Intel has also partnered with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment to bring their ULTRA 4K movie streaming service (launched in January this for Sony’s 4K TVs) to the users of the 7th Gen Intel Core processors. The movie rental service will commence sometime in the first quarter of 2017.

Intel aims that its next-gen Core processors would power most of the laptops and 2-in-1s in the market. Let’s see, how they perform in comparison to the recently announced Zen architecture-based processors by AMD.

“We are incredibly excited about the strong partnership with our OEM customers and expect more than 100 different 2 in 1s and laptops powered by 7th Gen Intel Core to be available starting in September through this holiday season,” writes Navin Shenoy, corporate VP and GM for  Intel’s Client Computing Group.

To say we are excited about our new 7th Gen Intel Core family is an understatement. I don’t think there has ever been a better time to check out what a new Intel-powered PC can do.
