Apple is releasing new iMacs this year, and there is now information on what processors they could be sporting at launch. A new report is shedding light on the processors Intel is preparing for the Cupertino giant’s upcoming all-in-one desktop computers. 

On Wednesday, Patently Apple reported that Intel is not only working on its new processors, it is also slated to unveil them next month during Computex 2017 in Taipei. The event is set to run from May 30 until June 3 which is two months earlier than its usual schedule. The processors that Intel is believed to be showcasing at the event are the Skylake-X and the Kaby Lake-X. There’s also mention of an X299 chipset. 

After introducing them in the Taipei event, Intel is reportedly launching them in the U.S. at the E3 gaming show in June. Then, the company is going to officially release them by the end of the month. The Skylake-X series has three 140W processors with 6-, 8- and 10-core architectures. Intel is also expected to launch a 12-core Skylake-X processor in September. On the other hand, the Kaby Lake-X series has a 112W quad-core processor.

Aside from the Basin Falls-based processors, Intel is also launching its Coffee Lake microarchitecture with 14nm process node in August 2017 instead of January 2018. Intel reportedly plans to challenge its competition from AMD’s Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 processors that’s why it is hard at work in preparing for the launch of its new processors. Besides, AMD is also announcing its 16-core Ryzen processor and X399 platform in the third quarter. 

Apple has not revealed the specifics of its new iMacs yet, but they are likely sporting the new Skylake-X and or Kaby Lake-X processors. Previously, IBTimes learned that one iMac model could come with an Intel Xeon E3-1285 processor and ECC RAM. Intel’s new Xeon E3 processors are based on Skylake and Kaby Lake architecture.
