Acer brings the new Aspire 7 Notebook series with Kaby Lake G CPUs with integrated AMD Radeon Vega Graphics for $1,499
Last year we had some headlines when we heard that Intel and AMD are working together to bring a game-changing CPU series. Intel had named this series Kaby Lake G CPUs that has powerful integrated Vega graphics.
Intel has been the master for gaming and high-end CPUs along with mobile CPUs since ages. On the other hand AMD is the only company on Earth to make seamless and powerful integrated graphics for processors.
Intel did lack on the graphics part of their CPUs as compared to AMD’s. So, to make a great user experience for its large customers, Intel thought of combining their horsepower with AMD’s best-in-class integrated grphics to help consumers use their CPUs at the fullest for all kinds of modern day usage.
When originally the Intel Kaby Lake G CPUs were announced, they were promised to provide significantly better performance for laptops and mini-PCs than Intel’s
Due to shortages in the 14nm chips, the number of devices that actually feature this processor became very limited, but now, Acer has launched its brand new series of Aspire 7 laptops powered by the Intel Kaby Lake G CPUs.
