In a relatively hush-hush manner, Intel recently slipped out energy saving versions of its Core 2 Quad Q8200, Q9400 and Q9550 CPUs, all of which are suffixed with a simple \"s.\" Put simply, these S-Series chips are built using the same 45 nanometer process technology as used on the regular models, a
