Intel's Xeon processors will soon be rolled out into laptops

Intel will soon have bragging rights on laptops, which will be powered by Xeon processors

Today's laptops are pretty damn powerful, where personally I use the ASUS ROG G751 gaming laptop as my personal workstation (heck, I'm typing on it right now) with a 34-inch 3440x1440 UltraWide display and a Acer XB270HU 2560x1440 144Hz G-Sync display plugged into it. But the CPUs inside are about to get a heck of a lot faster.

Intel has just unveiled the very first Xeon processor family for laptops, the E3-1500M v5, which is based on the Skylake architecture. These Xeon-powered laptops will also introduce some enthusiast and professional technologies, such as the new Thunderbolt 3 connector which supports dual 4K displays, USB Type-C, and much more from a single port.

The chipmaker isn't talking about all of the capabilities of its E3-1500M, but we do know that laptops using the Xeon processors will arrive in the fall.
