Intels Processor rebranding

What does everyone think about this? It seems Intel has modernised quite abit and i like it! saves all the confusion over duals coes and pentium dual cores for those people who are unsure what they are.

Their getting rid of centrino to. Love the whole new processor packaging looks

Aside from Rasta's ... original way of stating it I tend to agree with him.

nVidia rebrands and they are the bad guys, Intel rebrands and it makes things 'clearer'? Personally when I as average customer had bought a rather expensive i3 and found out it's actually a rebrand of a lower cpu <edit> I'd be rather mad. Fail >< </edit>.

However, intel seems to inform reasonably about it (salesmen in local shops might reverse that but the idea is there) and nVidia does not.

*quickly remembers 9800GT, GTS series and the recent GT300 fake*

Agreed. Salesmen in the shops won't know wtEf.

Intel talk to people more. nVidia don't talk to no-one, cept their partners, so people make things up.

Which is all exploded nonsense.

I like the idea, it makes it easier for the end user to distinguish (whereas NVidia was just renaming G92 over and over again)

The only time the gpu has been renamed is when it's been revised.

U think it should be revised and keep the same name ?
