It appears that HP Inc, formerly Hewlett-Packard, has accidentally shared information regarding Intel’s upcoming Kaby Lake and Apollo Lake processors. The information was found in documents regarding the company’s future PC, the HP Pavillion x360 m1.
The new Pavillion computer is a so-called hybrid computer, which means that it can act as both a laptop and a tablet. Its specifications are said to give an indication of what future Kaby Lake products can perform. Namely, it contains a dual-core Core i3-7100U that runs at 2.40 Ghz, draws 15 watts and has 3mb in cache memory.
Furthermore, there is also an “HD graphic 620” processor that is capable of games in DirectX 12, but can also stream HD content. Intel has previously stated that Kaby Lake chips should be able to stream 4K material.
But the Pavillion x360 m1 will also be configurable for the upcoming Apollo Lake chips. Then, according to information, it will be delivered with a Pentium N4200 processor running in 1.1. Ghz (but which can also reach 2.5 ghz) or a Celeron N3350 that runs at 2.4 ghz. Both chips have 2mb of L2 cache memory each.
PCs with Kaby Lake processors, the seventh generation “Core chip”, are expected to appear in stores in the fourth quarter of 2016. Asus has previously announced that their upcoming PC and tablet hybrid Transformer 3 will use the processor, but excluded further details.
Lenovo and Acer are also said to be ready to show off Kaby Lake hardware during the upcoming IFA trade show in Berlin starting on September 2.
