Default Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550S: A New 65W Quad-Core

In one breath Intel dramatically cut pricing on its Core 2 Quads. Intelís swift response was even faster than NVIDIAís after the RV770 launch. In the following breath however, Intel introduced new, lower power, and much higher priced Core 2 Quad CPUs. Enter the S-line.

TDP binning is something that AMD has done for quite a while on the desktop. The e-suffix parts (e.g. Phenom X4 9350e) are lower TDP parts, sold at a premium, to those users who need lower power consumption.

The Phenom X4 9350e and the 9150e are both 65W quad-core parts from AMD, while all of Intelís quad-core CPUs have been 95W. Unwilling to allow AMD any sort of advantage, Intel has finally responded with 65W quad-core offerings of its own. The difference here is that while AMDís 65W quad-cores are all significantly lower clocked Phenom processors, Intelís 65W chips are available at up to 2.83GHz.
