    Lightbulb Will ROG release laptops based on Kaby Lake Refresh?

    Intel has announced their 8-generation Core i5-U and i7-U CPUs, with four HyperThreaded cores for a total of eight processing threads available, all in a 15W TDP. Being based on the same Kaby Lake architecture, the Kaby Lake Refresh CPUs will also be based on the same 14nm+ manufacturing process. Previously, all quad-core mobile parts had 45W TDPs, so with the TDP down to 15W should allow ASUS to make slimmer laptops, right?

    Given ASUS' experience in cooling even the hottest CPUs and GPUs in their gaming laptops, I really believe that ASUS should be able to create something great with these lower TDP parts. ROG laptops with measurements comparable to their Zenbook series? Count me in!
