Intel Personally, I've always been very confused by Intel's processor branding. Core Duo and Core Solo were pretty straightforward, but not long after we were dealing with Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad, which is anything but marketing friendly. Apparently, Intel agrees with us and has announced a fairly massive branding overhaul.

Seriously, what do the 3, 5 and 7 mean. I don't see any sense in the i7 having four cores.

Wanna know what 3 5 and 7 mean? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!! That's WTF they mean. They might as well had called them peanutbutter, jelly, and mayo.

The saddest part about this is that Intel probably pays these assclowns a crapton of money, and this is the best they could come up with. Jesus Christ, it just makes me mental!

How can you take something so simple and make it so f**king complicated? If I walk into Best Buy and I see an 'i7' processor, I have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA WHAT THAT MEANS!! If you're going to seperate them into 'good' 'better' 'best', why not bronze/silver/gold? Of course, people actually understand what that means just by looking at it, so of course they can't do that.

And if i3/i5/i7 is good better best, then I guess the Pentium is average and the Celeron is piss-poor :|
