Apple iMac Features Intel Kaby Lake CPU
Over the weekend, Apple has listed on Best Buy's website an upgraded iMac powered by Intel's seventh-generation Kaby Lake Core i7 processor, according to Techno Buffalo. The new 27-inch iMac listed comes with next-gen processor on board.
The rest of the internal hardware specs for the iMac did not change much. The laptop still comes with a 2 TB Fusion Drive, 32 GB of RAM and a Retina 5K display. Since then, the listing has been taken down from the site, so it is still possible this could just be a mistake by Best Buy. However, the timing suggests Apple is planning to launch a new iMac featuring Intel's new processor.

Among the motherboards pictured are the ASRock Z270 Pro 4 and the ASRock Z270 Gaming K6. The Pro 4 motherboard is part of the mainstream line, while the Gaming K6 caters to gamers and enthusiasts.
The Z270 motherboard socket is part of the upcoming 200-series chipset stack. In the upcoming motherboard lineup, the 200-series will be the top tier.
