According to a story on CNET intel has decided (in their infinate wisdom) to futher convolute their system of naming processors;

Each Core 2 Duo chip will also have a model number that will indicate how much power it consumes and its relative performance, said Intel spokesman Bill Kircos. The Conroe processors will fall into either the 4000 series or 6000 series, while Merom processors will use either the 5000 series or 7000 series numbers, he said.

I thought intel was trying to clear up the confusion when they started all this!

"Mommy, can have a computer with the new Core 2 Duo Extreme 7200, or possibly the Core 2 Solo Extreme Face-Melter 5000?"

"Son, you know I don't speak Intelese" :bnghd:
