Intel Core i3-3227U and Core i5-3337U

There has been a lot of talk regarding Intel's ULV lineup refresh scheduled for Q1 2013, and although we already heard about the 35W TDP Core i7-3540M, Core i5-3340M and Core i5-3380M as well as the ULV Core i7-3687U and Core i5-3437U parts for the Ultrabook segment, it appears that the refresh will also include two additional ULV CPUs, the Core i3-3227U and the Core i5-3337U.

The Core i3-3227U and the Core i5-3337UI are both expected to have the same 17W TDP. Both of them will also feature 3MB of L3 cache, Intel's HD 4000 graphics part and most likely, will support Intel's Hyper-threading technology. The Core i3-3227U will have a slightly higher (100MHz) clock when compared to the 1.8GHz clocked Core i3-3217U CPU released back in June. As a part of the cheaper ULV lineup, the Core i3-3227U will lack Intel's Turbo Boost feature and will most likely replace the previously noted Core i3-3217 CPU.

The Core i5-3337U will have a slightly lower 1.8GHz base clock, but will feature Intel's Turbo Boost that will take it as high as 2.7GHz when needed.

Both CPUs have appeared in recent specification pages for Toshiba Satellite notebooks.
