I don't think that would help. Then people would assume both processors are the same and just get either one, when really both are completely different.

As for the name, I don't know. Sounds weird now, but I think we'll get used to it, just like "Vista".

The idea some1 suggested about making the numbers co-incide together, almost as a way that the `user` can make a comparison -

I read, when the XP+ versions of the AMD numbers first saw light of day that that was precisely what they were all about. Not as simple as I suggest, but something like Athlon XP 2600+ was the equiv of an Intel processor (flavor of the time) run @ 2.6ghz.

Of course, doing it at an initial stage is all well and good, but as years go by the numbers become less and less comparible or important.

U can`t for example draw any conclusions about a 4400+ Athlon x2 in terms of an Intel - unless u could say it`d be equiv to an E4400, which I pretty much imagine it wouldn`t be. Before the E4300 ranges, when they popularly had just the E6300 - it perhaps could have been a semi-sensible suggestion - but then along come Intel to blow that idea away.
