Kaby Lake Or Skylake: It Is Still undecided!

Well, it is still undecided whether Apple will be sporting the 6th generation ‘Skylake’ processors or the 7th Generation ‘Kaby Lake’ processors in the next Macbook lineup. But it is a great news that they are considering one of those.

This is going to be a big issue since the current chips in the MacBooks are so old and adding one of either two will provide a massive improvement on the performance and energy efficiency over the aging chips used currently.

According to Digital Trends, Apple has not made any moves in any direction yet but it is sure that they are going to use some variety of 6th or 7th generation chips but they have tighten the lips on revealing which technology they will embrace.

There is a strong hope that Apple will go ahead with the most future proof- 7th generation chips to stay competitive. But we need to wait for the event and the next announcement from Apple!
