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.

Even worse is that there wasn't just a Core 2 Duo, but also a Core 2 Solo, which was sometimes just called Core 2. This was at a time when the term "Dual Core CPU" was a pretty new one (at least to most people) and thus suggested that a "Core 2" is a dual core CPU. I remember how surprised I was when I read that a plain "Core 2" is a single-core CPU.
