"Intel Inside" is officially dead.

I don't really care too much for the slogan but the processor brand logos are nice.

It's veeeev! When you pronounce two I's in one words. Anyhow, it looks like they got a Japananimation company to do to the slogan with all of the solo and Duo usage. They don't understand people at the end won't care how you say it, it's dual and single core cpu,DUH?

Meh, the new graphics aren't that nice. They almost look pale and feminine when you consider most people who take the time to look up processors are guys, I don't think its that great of a move to get Martha Stewart designing your new logo. We'll see how they look on the stickers on OEM machines but it looks way too rounded to be taken seriously as an ass kicking processor.

No, the latest issue of Maximum PC or CPU talks about it and specifically says it's a hard "I" sound.

I'm the proud owner of a AMD CPU but their sticker which is on the front of my case looks crap. Brown, black white and green are ugly colours to use in combination.

doesn't matter how it's pronounced. Here are some sites to describe viiv and some of the new names intel came up with.

I can't help this hunch I have that intel is going to friggen dominate with this next round of CPU's. Prove me wrong AMD!

But Why such a crappy name "VIIV"
anyways, i dont care, they arent intrested in PC procs any more. they are more intrested in makin and sellin multimedia computer T.V. sets.

Probably because they needed a name crappy enough to go with their new processor naming scheme.

Pentium M ULV 773.

Absolutely terrible.
