    "Many people expect Apple to be Intel’s biggest customer with these parts, however the future of the product line is unclear, with Intel unwilling to discuss the roadmap on what is being called ‘Kaby Lake-G’."

    There's already been recent news about Apple possibly moving to a different CPU supplier in Macintosh systems in 2020, so less than 2 years from now. Maybe in the short term, Apple will be a customer for such chips, but the mid- to long-term future appears to be quite different. Here's a link to a source article about that:

    Apple has been hovering around 8% - 10% market share in laptops and a bit lesser share for desktops for a very long time. 10% is certainly enough for Intel to take notice but not enough for them to be coming out with CPU's specifically for them. Reply

    Apple sells/buys with above average prices. That makes them pretty valuabe customer.

    Intel did some tweaks of CPUs for them before (smaller packaging for C2D for Air and possibly others).

    There we go, ULV quads and Iris Plus were probably what the 13" rMBP was waiting on. Reply

    i9? Where are the 8 cores? Three architectures in one generation with no way simple way of distinguishing? Is 10nm coming this decade? Oh but you’ve added a single useless feature to optane. The market will bring retribution for incompetence soon. Reply

    "Three architectures in one generation with no way simple way of distinguishing? "

    the thing about maths, and a processor is just maths made manifest, is eventually you find the "best" topology. you've been walking toward a wall, half the distance at a step. in time you get close enough that you can't tell the difference. after that, it's just an engineering exercise in silicon/whatever. it's more than likely that the wall has been contacted. but none of the chip companies want us to know it.

    Any mention or update on the Intel Z390 chipset? Reply

    Any Coffee Lake mainstream mobile (15W TDP) CPUs, or are they skipping it for Cannon Lake? Reply
