    The 14-nanometre Kaby Lake family of chips has expanded to 42, with Intel announcing 40 new chips based on its seventh-generation Core architecture on Tuesday, ranging from the unlocked 91W-using 4.2GHz base frequency i7-7700K to the 1GHz 7W m3-7Y30 chip.

    The chip giant has broken up its processor line into four categories: The Y-series for detachables and compute stick; the U-series for laptops, convertibles, and minis; the H-series for Xeon laptops and mobile workstations; and the S-series for traditional desktops.

    Among the latest chip release is a new unlocked S-series i3 chip dubbed the i3-7350K that offers 4 threads on a dual-core processing unit running at 4.2GHz, and taking in 60 watts of power. The i3-7350K will be available a month after its i7-7700K and i5-7600K brethren.
