Leaks suggest Kaby Lake quad-core and GTX 1050 notebooks may ship before new year
Online retailer Execute has leaked some limited specs and release dates for notebooks premiering Kaby Lake HQ-series CPUs and Nvidia's GTX 1050. The estimated time of arrival for the product is December 29, according to the website. Previous rumors suggested both Kaby Lake quad-core and Nvidia's GTX would be showcased and released at CES 2017 in January. Thus, the arrival date of the 29th comes as a rather pleasant surprise.
The leaked model, named the Asus FX753VD, may be one of the first notebooks to ship with the previously unseen i5-7300HQ CPU and the GTX 1050 GPU. Other specs include 8 GB RAM, 256 GB of SATA SSD storage, and a 17-inch screen. The listed price on Execute is EUR 835.28, or approximately 873 USD excluding VAT, suggesting that the GTX 1050 will turn out to be a very popular mainstream GPU in 2017.
