As some of you will already know, Intel's new ULV line-up is set for release in the first quarter of 2013, boasting super power efficiency and more for the ultra-book market.

The new Core i3-3227U and i5-3337UI are expected to feature a TDP of just 17W, 3MB of L3 Cache, Intel HD 4000 Graphics and possible Hyper-Threading technology. The new core i3 will feature an extra 100Mhz boost over its previous model the i3-3217U which we saw hit the market back in June.

The i3 and i5 ULV lineup is set to keep prices low, power usage low and performance high, although its i3 variant is likely to miss out on Intel's Turbo Boost technology and is expected to fully replace the i3-3217U.

The new i5 however will take the opposite approach and feature a lower base clock speed than its predecessor which will now be set at 1.8GHz. This will however be complimented with the Turbo Boost technology that can fire the CPU up to a punchy 2.7GHz should you need the extra horse power, this will go a long way to reducing power usage when you don't need the CPU at full throttle.

CPU-World.com broke the details this week and you can check out the full breakdown here http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_i3/Intel-Core%20i3-3217U%20Mobile%20processor.html

It won't be long until we see this new revision installed in notebooks and ultra books, it may not be the most exciting launch ever but little revisions add up to a big difference in terms of power and performance.
