Intel has finally lifted the curtain on the rest of its Kaby Lake processor lineup. And though most of them are just updated versions of already existing Skylake chips, they are actually built on an improved manufacturing process called 14nm+. A few key improvements are: the new Integrated GPUs allows for 4K video playback on some chips that formerly weren’t capable, and HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2 support.

U-Series for Ultra-Portables

H-Series for Laptops

K, S, and T-Series for Desktops

There are three overclockable processors in this group, two of them, specifically the  i7-7700K and i5-7600K. are straight out replacements of their Skylake counterparts. But something new to the series is an overclockable dual-core i3-7350K, which seems to be a follow up of sorts to an anniversary edition Pentium processor a few years back. Notably missing from the lineup are the lower end Pentiums and Celerons, which we may or may not actually see (these are usually released a little later after a refresh, but there were instances when these were skipped).
