Intel finally unveiled the Kaby Lake Processors during the Consumers Electronics Show (CES) 2017. With that, Apple's upcoming iMac 2017 is anticipated to make its first appearance second half this year boasting latest chipset made by Intel.

According to Yibada, there is no official delivery schedule of the Intel Kaby Lake chipsets as of the moment and this situation hinders the release date of Apple's iMac 2017 and MacBook Pro. Of the chipsets, the S- and Y-Series are seen as the ones utilized with the Apple all-in-one devices. Meanwhile, the MacBook Pro is compatible with the H- and U-Series.

The Cupertino-based company is anticipated to launch an iMac successor this year since the hybrid computer has not gotten a refresh for two years now. As for the specs, the only remarkable feature about the all-in-one is the 5K Retina display for the 27-inch variant and nothing else. This has been perceived as one of the causes why the iMac has been left behind by its rivals like the Microsoft Surface series.

Additionally, PC Advisor noted that aside from the Intel Kaby Lake chipset, the iMac 2017 27-inch variant might also sport a 32GB of memory and a 2TB Fusion Drive. Also, Apple Inc. could well turn to AMD once again when it comes with graphics solution. The Polaris 10 has been a prime candidate to work hand-in-hand with Intel's newest processor. AMD's graphics processing unit will deliver improved graphics performance plus possible diminutions in power consumption and waste heat. But then the most exciting part is that these new graphics chips would for the first time bring VR potential to the Mac.

When it comes with the price, Apple's upcoming iMac 2017 27-inch variant might arrive having a price tag of $3,199.99. Moreover, the company's patrons will have to wait until second half of 2017 before the Cupertino-based tech giant unveils the upcoming family member of iMac.
