    Intel Clarkdale is taking shape - as we read on German's e-tail store there will be two lines of products based on Clarkdale core: Core i3-500 series and Core i5-600 series. The only visible differences between the two is lack of Turbo function, and we suspect that Core i3 won't be seeing Hyper-Threading either, just like the difference between Core i5-700 and Core i5-800 series.

    Joint feature on all of the models is a single-die 32nm Clarkdale core with 64KB of L1 cache and 4MB of L2 cache memory. This silicon die is paired with the 45nm iGFX core on the same organic substrate. Yes, the very same Intel graphics core that's been criticized for years for its inept performance and doubtful compatibility. But with Intel clocking the core to as high as 900 MHz it will be interesting to see can a clock-upping strategy work and make a semi-decent performer or not.
