I've gotta give kudos to Intel's marketing gurus for their new branding scheme. They've turned their logo inside out -- the "inside" in "intel inside" is now outside. They've faithfully followed the trend of CPU design, emphasizing multiple cores over megahertz. So what does Intel decide to call a CPU with a single core? Core Solo! A CPU with two cores? Core Duo. You see, a single core will have to solo all the instructions challenging it. Very appropriately named indeed. Continuing the trend, a CPU with 40 cores in the near future shall be called Core Raid.
And what about an overheating CPU? Molten Core! Ah okay, I'll stop there. =P
