What's going on? At first it was horses, but as they moved to a new processor line all of a sudden is european cities? And then they just throw Toledo and Sand Diego out of nowhere. Quite amusing I think.

Yea, intel's have stuff to do with wehre they were designed at

THe hammer names from AMD were cuz they had some office where they deinged em at, and combined 2 teams, and the offices were seperated by a wall, witc they broke down with a sledgehammer. not sure about the new names like newcastle and winchester etc.
