Apple seems to be facing a busy summer, as they are seen to announce a variety of new devices such as the new iPhone, the new Apple Watch, and the latest, it looks like the new MacBook Air.
Recently, there are interesting reports coming from Apple’s thin and light laptop, and it’s about the CPU that the laptop will use.
A report from the Economic Daily News newspaper said that Apple will load their latest MacBook Air using the eighth generation Intel CPU Kaby Lake which was launched in mid-2017.
It is also said that Apple’s initial plan was to use the CPU of the Cannon Lake series with a 10nm silicon build, but Intel announced that the CPU would only be available in the market by the end of 2019, while Whiskey Lake CPUs were supposed to arrive in the third and fourth quarter of this year said too slowly for the announcement of Apple’s new product which usually takes place in September every year.
The decision to use the Kaby Lake CPU instead of the ninth generation of Coffee Lake is a question mark here, as the U-series U-series Coffee Lake typically used for thin and lightweight laptops is still new in the market, and has a better performance than previous generation CPUs this is.
Even so, the MacBook Air will eventually receive CPU updates after a long time, as the previous MacBook Air models use Intel’s fifth generation Intel CPU series Broadwell.
Whatever, Apple is expected to launch the MacBook Air update on their announcement in September. We’re both waiting to see if this ura is true or not.
