Intel releases fastest dual core i3

Written by Nick Farell

Dell and HP have signed up

Intel has released its  fastest dual-core Core i3 laptop processor to PC makers and apparently Dell and Hewlett-Packard have bought shedloads.

The Core i3-370m will run at 2.4GHz and include 3MB of cache.  Already HP have announced that its Pavilion dv6t is selling with the new chip inside.

Dell has started to flog the processor in the Studio 15 laptop in Mexico and some parts of the Asian-Pacific region. So far, however, it has not been seen as a standalone item and can only be bought inside a laptop.

The new processor is the fastest in the Core i3 group of entry-level chips and Intel told us about it in January. Naturally, the company will continue to flog the 2.13Ghz Core i3-330m and 2.26Ghz Core i3-350m processors but if you want anything better you will have to go to the faster Core i5 and Core i7 chips.

The new chips are faster and have better offer quicker application and graphics performance compared to earlier Core 2 models because of technological improvements. The graphics processor and CPU are merged into a single package, which helps improve graphics performance while consuming less power. The beast can run two threads per core which also speeds things up a bit.

Intel has not made any information about a standalone chip cost available yet.

AMD do this, but with success (PII X4 955, 965 etc)

its just a way of marketing, they wont launch faster products even if they can, so that they can launch it later as a new one or wait till AMD launches some competitive product...

AMD is doing the same with their Athlon II line: deliberately holding back on clock speed so as let Phenom II have the exclusivity of faster clock speeds.

Intel is politely waiting for AMD to catch up a bit. AMD is dragging its feet by slowly increasing clock speeds each quarter, since Bulldozer won't be available for almost a year

i feel beside website redesign, your language in writing articles has been changed too. maybe I'm wrong but I'd prefer Street Talking kind of Fudzilla
