Intel's Core i7-3740QM and 3840QM CPUs coming
Replacement for Core i7-3x20QM
Initially, Intel released a total of six Core i7 Ivy Bridge mobile CPUs but according to Intel's Material Declaration Data Sheets (MDDS) database listings spotted by CPU-World, it appears that two more are coming pretty soon, namely the Core i7-3740QM and Core i7-3840QM.
According to CPU-World, the Core i7-3740QM and Core i7-3840QM should replace Core i7-3720QM and i7-3820QM CPUs. The previously released Core i7-3820QM runs at 2.7GHz base, 3.5GHz Turbo clocks and features 8MB of L3 cache, while the Core i7-3720QM is 100MHz slower and feature 6MB of L3 cache. It is believed that the upcoming Core i7-3740QM and i7-3840QM parts will have a slightly higher clocks while retaining all of the features.
It is still not clear when can we expect these new mobile CPU but considering the fact that they have showed up in MDDS database, they should come sooner rather than later.
