IN­TEL

HWM (Singapore) - - Readers' Choice -

Qual­comm’s Snap­dragon SoCs and Ap­ple’s A se­ries chips are in most mo­bile de­vices th­ese days; but for desk­tops, they’re mostly In­tel in­side. The se­cond half of 2015 saw the ar­rival of the 6th-gen Core pro­ces­sor fam­ily, and th­ese “Sky­lake” chips have be­come ever-present in Win­dows PCs since. That said, if you want the lat­est and great­est from chipzilla, it has got to be a CPU from the 7th-gen Core “Kaby Lake” se­ries. Built us­ing an improved 14nm process, Kaby Lake is the first “op­ti­miza­tion” ex­am­ple of In­tel’s new process-ar­chi­tec­ture-op­ti­miza­tion strat­egy. A long-stand­ing win­ner of this Read­ers’ Choice award, can AMD’s up­com­ing Ryzen change any­thing next year? Ex­cit­ing times ahead for the CPU scene!
