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.

How many freaking cores do these things have. I'm pretty sure they don't have 3, 5 or 7 cores... even though that's what this new naming scheme makes it sound like...

Now the number of cores is even more obscure! Thanks for clearing up the confusion, guys!!! *thumbs up* /sarcasm
