With the rumored launch of the next CPU generation "Kaby Lake" right ahead of us, we should also see quad-core ULV processors from Intel for the first time. There seem to be 15 and 18-Watt models with four cores and Intel HD Graphics GPU.

That Intel's Kaby Lake processors should be launched very soon is pretty certain based on all the news right now, especially since first benchmarks leaked as well (i7-7500U, we reported).

We got a picture from a presentation where we can see the dual-core U-series processors (15 and 28 Watts, with Intel HD Graphics and Intel Iris Graphics) and also a quad-core version with Intel HD Graphics and 15-Watt TDP, as well as a more powerful quad-core version with Intel HD Graphics and 18-Watt TDP within the more powerful H-series lineup. Both chips will, however, probably need some time and should be released in the second half of 2017.

The really interesting aspect from this limited amount of information is that both the normal dual-core processors as well as the new quad-core chips are specified with a similar TDP (15 W U-series, 18 W H-series). The "normal" quad-cores from the H-series on the other hand are specified with a 45-Watt TDP. It is also interesting that the TDP values of the H and U-series are similar to the Skylake generation. A quad-core chip in combination with the more powerful Intel Iris Graphics ("3e") is not listed.

I grew up with computers and modern consumer electronics. I am interested in the technology since I had my first computer, a Commodore C64, and started building my own PCs after that. My focus here at Notebookcheck is the business segment including mobile workstations, but I also like to test new mobile devices. It is always a great experience to review and compare new products. My free time is filled with a lot of sports, in the summer mainly on my bike.
