Intel Core i3-2348M and i5-3230M

In addition to a handful of mobile Core i5 and i7 CPUs scheduled for Q1 2013, as well as a few ULV parts including the Ivy Bridge-based Celerons, Fujitsu's product site for the Lifebook NH532 has revealed two more Intel CPUs, probably scheduled for the same time frame, the Core i3-2348M and the Core i5-3230M.

Judging by the designations and some specifications revealed by Fujitsu, the Core i3-2348M seems based on the Sandy Bridge architecture, works at 2.3GHz and features 3MB of L3 cache. As a part of the Core i3 mobile series, this dual-core will feature Hyper Threading and Intel HD 3000 graphics, but will lack some features like Turbo Boost and Small Business Advantage tools. The performance will most likely be identical to the Core i3-2350M.

The Core i5-3230M is based on Intel's Ivy Bridge architecture and works at 2.6GHz base and 3.2GHz maximum Turbo clock. This dual-core CPU packs 3MB of L3 cache, supports Hyper Threading, features Intel HD 4000 graphics and has a 35W TDP. The new Core i5-3230M is a direct successor to the Core i3-3210M and will be available in both BGA and PGA packages. The same CPU will be an option in Asus' G55VW 15.6-inch gaming notebook.
