    These statements are confusing, everything here stated that the mobile 6 core CPU's do have Hyperthreading. 6C/12T

    Marketing wise - AMD does similar tactics calling Ryzen 7, Ryzen 3 .... maybe they will have Ryzen 9 one day.

    AMD is at least a little better on this. Generally speaking the 3/5/7 distinctions hold up...with potentially confusing exceptions of course. Reply

    My first computer was an AND composed marking cup- at the time I thought I was getting an Intel 386 25mhz chip and they put Amd clone 25mhz chip. I spent $1700 and that was cheep then Reply

    Still no Core Y / 4.5W updates... its been 2 years now :/ Reply

    I'm guessing that they're skipping to Cannon Lake / 10nm for the Y-series, but who knows. Reply

    If Apple does move to ARM (in a few years and only for lower powered models) the Y CPUs are the first to take the hit. There are very few ultraportables so successful to justify Intel's continued research in this. They already go out of mobile for the same reason, it's likely that in the future they will get out of the (ultra?) low power parts (under 10W). Reply

    yeah that's what i was thinking... is there any news on the release date for these? I've just seen rumours of "late 2018", so I can only assume december... Reply

    Actually an year and half since Q3 2016 - but it looks like 8th gen u series can be used in ultra lights Reply

    yeah i realised after i posted but still. i know the U series are being used in ultra lights... but they still arent as ultra light as Y's.... all the U based ultrabooks start at 1.4KG and have cpu fans, my core Y ultrabook is 1KG and has no fans... oh well, will just have to keep waiting...

    My Acer Switch Alpha 12 uses an i5-6200u, weighs 1.28 kg and is passively cooled. There's a few ultrabooks/tablets/2 in 1's that use u-series processors and no fans, but yeah they are rare. Personally I'd rather have a U processor for the added unmph...the 4.5w Y's will struggle to do much more than surf the web. Even high resolution video decoding can push past a Y processor's limits.
