NEXT-GENERATION INTEL PC CHIPS TO CARRY INTEL CORE NAME



Intel Reveals More Larrabee Architecture DetailsSANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 11, 2008 – Intel Corporation announced today that desktop processors based on the company’s upcoming new microarchitecture (codenamed “Nehalem”) will be formally branded “Intel Core™ processor.” The first products in this new family of processors, including an “Extreme Edition” version, will carry an “i7” identifier and will be formally branded as “Intel Core i7 processor.” This is the first of several new identifiers to come as different products launch over the next year.

Products based on the new microarchitecture will deliver high performance and energy efficiency. This "best of both worlds" approach is expected to extend Intel’s processor leadership in future mobile, desktop and server market segments.

“The Core name is and will be our flagship PC processor brand going forward,” said Sean Maloney, Intel Corporation executive vice president and general manager, Sales and Marketing Group. “Expect Intel to focus even more marketing resources around that name and the Core i7 products starting now.”

The Intel Core processor brand name has gained broad awareness, preference, and market momentum over the past several years. The Intel Core name remains the logical choice for Intel’s latest family of processors. The Intel Core i7 processor brand logo will be available for high-performance desktop PCs with a separate black logo for Intel’s highest-end “Extreme Edition.” Intel will include processor model numbers to differentiate each chip.

Initial products based on this microarchitecture are expected to be in production in the fourth quarter of this year. These processors will feature Intel Hyper-Threading Technology, also known as simultaneous multi-threading, and are capable of handling eight software “threads” on four processor cores.

For more information and downloadable new Core i7 logos, please visit the Intel pressroom at the link included below.

Pretty cool looking logo. I like that better that core2duo dual core cpu label on computer boxes. Its kinda repetitive.

I have always felt like intel left there logos up to random 10yr olds. Cool and yet somehow a little goofy at the same time.Big Smile

This must be part of their larger marketing campaign: "Intel Core, say no more, Who's your friend?"

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

Well now that they have the names down....hows about Intel ships a few off for testing?? I WANT SOME NUMBERS!!!! DAMIT (no I am not swearing) could then swiftly retaliate which perhaps a less-performing batch of CPUs but cheaper none-the-less
