AMD k6-2 : codename "chomper" - probably had better per-core performance than bulldozer.

Bulldozer. I just like the name, not the CPU's themselves :D

I thought Polaris was a great name for the 80 core research processor a few years ago. Then again Knights Corner was also a great name for their more recent 55 core processor.

I actually have a K6-2, but I only use it as a hairbrush. Works awesomely, and every time I use it, it starts a conversation. because no one knows what it is...lol
