Intel says that the 7th generation of processors has its improved process technology of 14 nm to which they have made it 14nm +, which offers up to 12% faster productivity and performance up to 19% faster compared to the previous generation, launched just a year ago.
The new generation of processors have enough into account new consumer trends and content creation, especially in 4K resolution videos in videos and 360 ° virtual reality, aspects that Intel includes in its concept of immersive Internet.

In addition to improving support for videos 4K / UHD both encoding and accelerated hardware decoding through the integrated GPU. The new generation of Intel processors is also compatible with HDMI 2.0, HDCP 2.2 and Thunderbolt 3 Specifications . Perhaps one of the drawbacks is that it still supports the DisplayPort 1.2 specification instead of version 1.3 of it.
Intel will be launching different models of processors 7th generation batch. Where today only available low-voltage processors dual core focused on portable and lightweight equipment. Specifically, three models of Gen Y and three models of the Gen U. Intel promises that desktop CPUs and other models with the higher performance will be announced next January at CES.
