Intel’s Kaby Lake Processors For New iMac: Apple’s Desktop A Top Competitor Again!
The year 2016 has been one of the most happening years for Apple for having launched a number innovative products. However, the Cupertino Tech Giant is taking its time in releasing its next generation all-in-one computer, the Apple iMac.
Apple's most popular version of Apple iMac is one of the highly-awaited products in the market. It was initially expected to be released along with the new MacBook Pro last month. However, the company has not yet released its new iMac leaving fans in dismay on the reason behind the delay.
Reason behind iMac release is delay
Reports suggest that the key reason behind the delay in the release of the new iMac is that Apple has opted to incorporate Intel's latest Kaby Lake-based processors into the new iMac. If iMac will be sporting the new chipsets, it will be a game-changer leaving iMac to hold an upper hand against its competitors.
The Kaby Lake-based processor chipsets are expected to be significantly faster than any other processor is available on the market today.
Apart from faster performance, the new chipsets will consume less power adding up to the battery life. Though the power-saving options do not really matter to the wall-plugged iMac, it is still a worthy feature to have in mind.
For now, Apple's iMac will be facing tough competition from Microsoft Surface Studio which is dubbed as the "iMac killer". The all-in-one PC offers better features and greater performance when compared to the present generation iMac, which makes it tough time for iMac when it is released.
However, reports claim that Apple shall regain its top market position once again after the release of the new iMac. If the new iMac is going to be powered by the latest Kaby Lake chips, it will already have a competitive advantage against its other main top brands. The new iMac is expected to be out for the big release early next year, as early as January.
