Can I call my e2220 a C2D?

Based on what I read Intel was going to call the e2XXX series Core 2 Duo but then pulled "Pentium" out of it's ass one last time.

Would you guys, the hardware enthusists, get mad if I called it a Core 2 Duo.

If no, how about Core 2 duo lite :D

  1. :p Allendale is still a Core 2 CPU just with less L2 cache and no x86 Vitalization support.
    If it looks like a duck, sounds like a duck and tastes like a duck..... It mus be a Core 2 :p

    This lack of functionality is starting to get on my nerves, Toms.
  3. well actually outlw6669, if a woman weights as much as a duck then she must be a witch. BURN THE WITCH\!!!!!!
  4. Go ahead.. On amd 'fanatics' ie. not fans, would care

  6. Just as Netburst = all Pentium Fours, C2D = all cores based of this arch. C2D is the name of the Arch, not the chip. The Netburst Arch had "Willies", Northwoods, and Presshots, the C2D line up has Allendales, Conroes, and Kentsfields.

    This begs the question, what is the name of the new arch? Its still heavily based on Core 2, but can't really be called that due to the IMC right?

    (as a side note, whats this BS with registering my account? How screwed up is toms getting?)
  7. I always thought of it this way.

    Netburst = Arch
    Pentium 4/D = Chip Line Name
    Willie, Northwood, Prescott. = Code Name/Core Name

    Core 2 = Arch
    Core 2 Duo/Quad/Extreme = Chip Line Name
    Allendale, Conroe, Kentsfield = Code Name/Core Name

    so... are you trying to tell us that it should be called a core 2?

    New arch = Core i7. The first ones to be released will be Bloomfield.

    The chip is based on Core 2 but branded a Pentium Dual-Core by Intel. Call it a Pentium Dual-Core and/or E2200.

    What horrible things will happen to me if I call it Core 2?

    If you bought it, you can call it whatever you want, it's yours. Call it Catherine Zeta-Jones if you want. :) Now seriously, I don't know why they brought back the "Pentium" thing. It just brings back sad memories of Netburst.
  13. Thanks guys, you've been really supportive!

    I was almost sure some guy who bought a $1000 Extreme edition would call it blasphemy for me to call my e2220 a C2D.
  14. Tell you what, between you with your E2220 and that guy, you are smarter. Or at least you got better bang for the buck.
