Intel has already introduced their energy-efficient CPUs of Quad Core lineup on Jan-19-2009, these three low power consuming CPUs were introduced for Core 2 Quad lineup, Q8200s, Q9400s, Q9550s, these cpu’s comes with a TDP of 65W. This is not the end of the story, Intel is also planning to launch 45nm Lynnfield Core i5 processors in August or September of this year, these processors will be of LGA1156 socket and will come with a TDP of 95W.
Later in Q1 2010 Intel will release the same 45nm Lynnfield Core i5 processors with a lower TDP of 65W. The purpose of these low power CPUs are not only to bring down energy consumption of cpu’s but also to enable scalability to even those platforms that are developed for cpu’s with power rating of 65W.
