The Country Caller provides a quick review of Apple Inc.’s next-generation MacBook Pro
If recent speculation is to believed, then Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is lining up the launch of a significantly more powerful version of its current MacBook Pro. The Cupertino-based company is expected to roll out an Intel Kaby Lake-powered model of its current MacBook Pro by the end of 2017.
You might have heard that Intel has finally started mass-producing its latest processing chip, the Intel Kaby Lake. This has led to speculation regarding Apple introducing Intel’s new and improved processing chipset in its current flagship notebook device.
Intel has confirmed that its seventh-generation processing chipset is not only faster compared to Intel’s sixth-generation chipset, but is also designed to be more efficient at power consumption. Hence, any device which incorporates the new Intel Kaby Lake processor will effectively become faster and more efficient at consuming power. This is why Apple simply cannot afford to miss out on Intel’s seventh-generation processing chipset.
Moreover, majority of Apple’s rival companies are expected to incorporate Intel’s latest processor in their upcoming notebook and hybrid devices. This is why it is so critical for the Cupertino-based company to roll out a Kaby Lake-powered variant of its MacBook Pro before the end of this year.
For those of you who don’t know already, the current Skylake-based variants of the MacBook Pro are limited to offering up to 16 GB worth of RAM. However, with the incorporation of Intel’s Kaby Lake processor, Apple will be able to enhance the RAM on its flagship notebook offering up to 32 GB. Hence, the next-generation MacBook Pro could potentially represent a serious upgrade in terms of performance.
