Rumor: Intel and AMD present Kaby Lake and Zen in January 2017




Intel would plan to introduce at CES electronics trade fair, the new generation processor, codenamed Kaby Lake early 2017. Around the same time AMD would like to reveal the processors based on its new Zen architecture.

That requires at least DigiTimes based on his sources at Taiwanese tech companies. With rumors of Intel and AMD DigiTimes has often it right. The site speaks of postponement because analysts had expected introduction late in 2016, but officially AMD and Intel have said no launch date.

In addition, an official launch at CES in Las Vegas in early January 2017, the earlier availability of systems with the new processors are not in the way. Such was not the case with Intel launches Sandy Bridge and Broadwell.

AMD made ​​late last year itself already known that the first Zen processors would appear no earlier than the end of 2016. At roadmaps from Intel were the first Core Y and U-processors for laptops Kaby Lake generation for release midway through the third quarter of 2016, but systems with those chips could still be available in late 2016.

Zen must for AMD signify a great leap forward with regard to its processors, mainly thanks to a better ipc or instructions per cycle. Kaby Lake is expected to be a modest update for Intel processors. The generation is the third step in Intel’s “process-architecture-optimization’ strategy. The chips are just as Broadwell and Skylake produced on 14nm, but contain relative to those generations some optimizations.
