MacBook Air Successor Will Reportedly Use Kaby Lake Processors


According to a translated report from Taiwanese publication Economic Daily News, the successor to the MacBook Air will pack an Intel Kaby Lake processor. Makes sense as the release of the Cannon Lake chip has  been delayed again. However, the Sellers Research Group says the new laptop won’t be dubbed a MacBook Air.

The Kaby Lake Refresh lineup includes quad-core Core i5 and Core i7 processors with base clock speeds between 1.6GHz and 1.9GHz, and max Turbo Boost speeds between 3.4GHz and 4.2GHz. The 15W chips feature integrated Intel UHD Graphics 620, with support for up to 32GB of DDR4 or LPDDR3 RAM.
