Intel Intel has completed the design of Penryn, a 45-nanometer chip that will be out toward the end of next year. The company is also in the midst of making its first Penryn samples. "They aren't out of the fab yet, but they are in the fab," said Mark Bohr, director of process technology at Intel.

most code names now stick to processors. Woodcrest et all. Core Duo3 perhaps?

Core Duo3 perhaps?

I find it unlikely that Penryn would gain the Core 3 moniker. That's more likely reserved for the Nehalem (2008).

Penryn is a die shrink plus SSE4; it's not a new architecture.

The architecture name is Core, not Core Duo.

Hence, the third iteration of the architecture name would be Core 3, with CPUs named Core 3 Solo, Core 3 Duo, and so on.

The Duo is a modifier of the architecture name, and not part of the architecture name. Hence, the name will not be "Core Duo 3".

It would have been nice if Intel had actually waited until the Core architecture was released before using the Core name. That way, things would make sense now. The whole "Core 2" naming scheme is crap.

The Pentium-M should have remained the Pentium-M, they should never have renamed it Core.

The Core 2 should have been the first one called the Core, since it was the first CPU based on the Core architecture.

Who ever it is at Intel that runs the marketing division should be canned (in all senses of the word).
