Intel’s first foray into the mobile market, the new Core i7-7700K, will not see a desktop part, according to a new report.
Intel said in a post on its blog that its new Core CPUs, which will run the Core i5-7750K, Core i3-7650K and Core i4-7600K chips, will instead be sold on an array of tablets.
That’s in contrast to previous Core CPUs from Intel, which have only been sold on laptops and desktop PCs.
That said, the announcement means that desktop users won’t see the same sort of performance and feature set that they can expect from desktop CPUs.
Intel says that tablet processors will include “a faster, faster, higher-quality processor with a higher power density, and more advanced features.”
That’s important because the desktop processors that Intel has been selling have been relatively good, in part because Intel has made them better in some respects than other processors.
However, Intel’s tablet processors are going to be “better-performing” than their desktop counterparts, the company said.
The desktop processors are also going to include features that Intel says make them more competitive with mobile chipsets.
Intel’s announcement also includes a few additional details about how Intel plans to make its mobile processors more attractive to mobile users.
First, the Core CPUs are going be priced lower than the Core 3 processors they replace.
Intel claims that it will make Core i6-7670K and the Core m5-7640K processors cheaper than their current Core i2-7770K counterparts.
The company will also offer more unlocked processors.
For example, Intel said that it would sell a Core m7-7660K processor for $699, whereas the Core M7-7601X processor would cost $1,199.
Those price reductions will also apply to the Core chips themselves.
Intel also said that the Core processors will be priced at around $1 per watt, which is a bit lower than it is now, at $2.99 per watt.
Intel will sell those Core chips for around $199, whereas they’ll cost $999 for the Core processor alone.
That $1 price difference is a significant chunk of the price of the new CPUs, but the company’s new chip lineup still won’t be cheap.
The Core i CPUs are only going to hit $499, which means that you’ll be paying $100 more for them than you’d be if you were buying an Intel-made Core i9-7790X processor.
The price difference will also extend to the Intel Core i-series chips, which are now priced at $999.
The chip lineup, however, won’t include a new microarchitecture from Intel.
Intel already has a number of new microprocessors in the works.
One of those microarchivers, called the Core-M, is expected to debut in early 2018.
Intel is also expected to launch a new “super-microarchitectural” chip with a new architecture, called Core-X, in early 2019.
That chip, which would be a smaller, faster chip, is being marketed as a replacement for the existing Core-A chips, as well as for mobile devices.
The new microprocessor family is expected at launch to cost $399.
The processor lineup, according in the new Intel blog, will have more than a dozen new CPU cores, four more than Intel’s previous processor lineup.
In addition to that, Intel also has an unspecified number of CPU-based GPUs.
The chips will also include support for DDR4 memory, as Intel previously announced.
