Default Intel's Conroe Gets a Name!

For the Intel lovers and future Intel owners, now you know what to shop for!
For the first time in years Intel will have the same trademarks for its desktop and mobile processors, something, which should emphasize good performance per watt ratio for the new chips known under Conroe, Merom and Woodcrest code-names and also their low power consumption. The new desktop Core 2 Duo chips will consume only up to 65W, whereas modern high-performance Pentium D chips have thermals of up to 130W.


Intel Core is the name for the company’s dual-core mobile processor code-named Yonah that sports several performance enhancements over the previous-generation Pentium M chips, but does not provide certain modern features, such as 64-bit capability. Intel Core 2 processors, however, will support 64-bit technology and also employ many performance-boosting features compared to the Core or the Pentium D chips.

Maybe AMD will counter by leaving the "athlon" name for "CPU"?
ATi can ditch radeon for "VPU 1" and NV Geforce infavor of "GPU 1", I would love to get my hands on Creatives new "soundcard" series..

Well, Ill say this for it tho, its nice to be spared the letter "X" for a change.

Who cares really? If they can start delivering some ass kickage instead of being kicked in the ass like they have been having for a long time, then who gives a damn what the name is?

So if I ask for "dual core", will I get two of these CPUs?

Core, Whore, Bore, doesnt matter to me. As long as it delievers punishing performance for gaming. Just like "Wii". It doesnt matter. Its all about the graphics and performance.

It's an incredibly smart move, actually. They're making their product synonymous with a new trend in the industry, namely dual-core processors.

To the vast majority of people, 'core' is a new technical term and one that they don't really understand. When in the market for a new computer, they will inevitably hear the terms single- and dual-core processors, and when they see an ad for Core Duo they get a feeling of familiarity with the product. In principle, what they're shooting for is the level of synonymity that Kleenex has with paper towels and Xerox has with photocopiers... which is pretty much the best market status you can have.
