Core i3, i5 Notebooks Launching in January
Intel has officially announced that its Core i3 and Core i5 processors for notebooks will be launching in January at CES. The Core i5 is considered a mainstream processor and the Core i3 budget; the enthusiast Core i7 processors have already been launched and are shipping in many notebooks now.
The major difference between the Core i3 and i5 processors is that the i5 will have a feature called Turbo Boost, a feature which automatically overclocks the CPU under certain situations. Both the Core i3 and i5 will feature Hyper-Threading technology, which will allow for more efficient multi-tasking and faster execution of programs that use multiple processors.
