Intel began shipping the new performance mobile processors that will be used in the next generation 15-inch MacBook Pro. The launch of this series means the imminent appearance in the sale of solutions based on them.
In the “stones” are models of the line Core i7 processors on the architecture of the item has been added, as well as mobile versions of server processors Xeon, designed for portable workstations.
Intel began production of the first mobile representatives of the architecture of the item has been added in the past year, they were intended for laptops and the average initial performance and price categories. Now we are talking about solutions upper categories, which include MacBook Pro.
The fastest of the new products is a Quad-core Core i7-6970HQ with a clock frequency of 2.8 GHz and cache of 8MB, the model Core i7-6870HQ with a clock frequency of 2.7 GHz and i7-6770HQ with a frequency of 2.6 GHz. They cost the same as the solution of the previous generation Haswell that is used in today’s “prošek”.
Specified processors will remain the fastest Intel processors for laptops until the new chips game series Extreme Edition, also on the architecture of the item has been added on 14-nm technological process.
Interesting, but highly unlikely for the MacBook looks like the script with a line of mobile chips Xeon. It includes a 4-core model E3-1575M v5 with a clock frequency of 3 GHz. High cost model ($1207) excludes the possibility of its appearance in portable Apple devices.
As for the 13-inch MacBook Pro, the processors for this line were submitted in September last year. Intel, however, has delayed volume production of chips up to 2016. The start of sales of MacBook Pro on their basis can be expected in the coming months. The most likely is the announcement of the update at the March press event Apple, dedicated to iPhone 5se, either at the world conference for developers (WWDC 2016) in June.
