The Core i3-2350M and the core i3-2370M are the highest clocked second generation core i3 processors ( also called Sandy Bridge processors). Notebooks launched so far had mostly core i3-2310M and core i3-2330M so far been dominant but, it is expected that these will be replaced by the Core i3-2350M and Core i3-2370M in future.
All the processors have the same architecture and the only difference is the clock frequency. In a typical manufacturing process, you typically get a mix of high and low frequency parts. It is not un reasonable to expect that it gets some of the parts that can clock at 2.40 GHz . Intel may can brand it as core i3-2370M and sell at at some premium price.
The performance of these higher clock parts should be marginally better than its immediate predecessor. So, while the difference between the core i3-2330M and the core i3-2350M may be marginal, the difference between core i3-2310M and core i3-2370M will be substantial.
