While processor upgrades may not happen as routinely as some other areas in tech, when they arrive, their inevitable inclusion in many popular products is a welcomed one.

One such upgrade is certainly planned for Apple’s MacBook Air lineup, and if a new report from Fanless Tech pans out, then we could be looking at the first details regarding Intel’s Skylake processors. This lineup would primarily be used for Apple’s MacBook Air lineup, with the 2.3GHz i5-6200U and 2.4GHz i5-6300U perfectly equipped to find slots within the lower-end MBA, and the 2.5GHz i7-6500U and 2.6GHz i7-6600U perfect for the higher-end options.

As far as graphics goes, each of the four chips will use Intel’s HD 5200 graphics.

While the details are there, what’s still missing is information regarding launch windows. It’s expected that these specific chips won’t see the light of day until sometime in 2016, and considering the MBA refreshes in the early part of the year, that would certainly make sense.

Are you looking forward to picking up a refreshed MacBook Air?
