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.

Are all these supposed to be written off the history record with a ... name change?

No, they just want to make it "easier" for Joe Average.
While i3, i5 and i7 mean absolutely nothing in themselves they are easier to tell apart than the Core 2 variations.

You can fool some ppl sometimes but you cant fool all the people all the times.

It's enough to fool most people most of the time.
