Reports claim that the Ti version of the Nvidia GTX 1050 mobile GPU has a higher clock speed as compared to the desktop version of the GPU. It is also better than previous generation mobile GPUs so that is also some great news to take away and to keep you excited for CES 2017.
Some of the Kaby Lake versions of slim notebooks and mobile devices have been released but we are going to get the high-end Kaby Lake H Series CPUs at CES 2017. These will be the CPUs that will be housed in the high-end notebooks and gaming laptops so be sure to tune in for that as well.
