As big of a disaster that the P4 was overall, I think that Intel is ready to distance themselves a bit.

So we aren't going to have a third pentium 4? or a pentium 5? It's about time they dumped that name.

I believe ATi already has rights to that strategy.

Wow!! it sounds like a new gillette or something like that, one has 3 blades and the other has 4 blades and after shave for not irritating your skin.

I'm always disappointed. Code names are often pretty good, but the marketing name they end up using is always crap.

Take Conroe for example, Longhorn (even MS), Northwood. Only Willamette sucked.

They should just have stuck with conroe as Nintedo should have stuck with the revolution. I suppose we will get used to it in time eh.

QFT! Core isn't a bad name and I like the new logo. And who's to say that we can't call it conroe?:)

As for Nintendo, I think Revolution is pretty much the most horrific name ever, so any change is a good one.

After the Pee4 line anything is ok. ;)

I'm already saving $ for my Conroe rig. Core 2 Duo for me. :D
