I'm thinking the update will be minor, with a few CPU speed bumps and storage updates (incl. Fusion and SSD options for the base model), but will include 8 GB RAM base. Also 802.11ac and maybe Thunderbolt 2.
The Core i7-3960X is a six-core processor that can handle 12 simultaneous processor threads; it does that via Intels Hyper-Threading Technology, which enables each core of the processor to work on two threads at once. The chip's base clock speed is 3.3GHz, 100MHz slower than its Core i7-990X predecessor.
Despite this model being a "budget minded" tablet, I've found so many wonderful uses for it that I couldn't possibly list them all. It's a rather feature packed and expandable device that not only serves well as a browsing tablet and PIM device but this low end version also does alright on some games that surprised me.
HTC announced a budget-minded Android 2.1 phone for European and Asian markets. Available in the third quarter, the HTC Wildfire will offer a 3.2-inch capacitive touch screen, a five-megapixel camera, a 3.5mm audio jack, a microSD card slot, and a new app-sharing feature, says the company....
My wife has a samsung ACE 2 from 2 years ago, and Samsung just confirmed that its getting a Kit Kat update along with other models over a year old !
I wonder if Asus will follow suite with their relatively new Memo pad HD7. apparently Kit Kat needs only 512Mb of RAM and it has speed advantages compared to previous releases...
