“A set of supposedly leaked specifications for Intel’s upcoming Skylake processor lineup made its way to the Web on Tuesday, offering what could be the first peek at what users can expect from Apple’s next-generation MacBook Air products,” Mikey Campbell reports for AppleInsider.
“The roadmaps published by FanlessTech show specifications for Intel’s 15-watt Skylake-U series, a low-power product targeting thin-and-light notebooks and ultralights,” Campbell reports. “As noted by the publication, Intel is apparently streamlining its product offering to one Core i7, one Core i5, one Core i3, one Pentium, and two Celerons, not including two vPro chips.”
Campbell reports, “Apple will choose for its MacBook Air update, but likely candidates include chips from the Core i5-6200U and Core i7-6500U series.”
