Intel's 7th generation processors have been officially announced and the chipmaker predicts they could help create even thinner laptops.
Skylake CPUs have already led us to ultra-thin machines like the 10.4mm HP Spectre, however, Intel claims with 7th gen codenamed Kaby Lake processors, we'll start seeing 10mm thick 2-in-1 laptops and even slimmer traditional clamshell notebooks.
This is all possible thanks to an improved 14nm architecture with a thinner fin profile and a more robust transistor channels.
As a result, we'll see more efficient chips that only use between 4- to 15-watts to start.
Beyond helping to produce smaller devices, the improved architecture has also led to a 12% process performance increase and 19% better web performance.
