Intel Core i3-2308M and i3-2365M coming in Q3
Sandy Bridge parts
Although it has introduced two mobile Core i3 Ivy Bridge CPUs last month, Intel is still not scraping its Sandy Bridge architecture and preparing two new Core i3 CPUs scheduled for Q3, the Core i3-2308M and the Core i3-2365M.
Both of the upcoming new Core i3 CPUs feature two cores, 3MB of L3 cache, Intel's HD 3000 graphics and support for DDR3-1333 memory. They also feature support for Intel Hyper-threading, VT-x virtualization but lack all other advanced features like Turbo Boost and AES.
As far as the specs are concerned, the Core i3-2308M ticks at 2.1GHz while the graphics part is set to work at 650MHz with 1100MHz Turbo. It is based on PGA package and has a 35W TDP. It is pretty much the Core i3-2310M without Intel Small Business Advantage (SBA). The Core i3-2365M is identical and should replace the Core i3-2367M. The CPU part works at 1.4GHz while the GPU is working at 350MHz base and 1GHz Turbo clocks. It also lacks Intel SBA support and has a 17W TDP.
The Core i3-2308M and the Core i3-2365M are both probably aimed at mainstream notebooks and according to details, the Core i3-2365M is not qualified for the "Ultrabook" logo, despite its 17W TDP. Both should be officially released in September.
