Amd is getting ready to name their new k8 processor the "<A HREF="http://www.mulletron.com/" target="_new">Mulletron</A>"

these are just rumors atm, but it shows AMD's love for those Canadians, eh?

FORTON
METARON
*MULTEON
VANTON
OPTERON

From <A HREF="http://www.amdzone.com/#1" target="_new">http://www.amdzone.com/#1&lt;/A>

I hope no Canadian or mullet head takes offence to this, it is only in jest this post is, eh?

AmD merely requested the rights to those names, it dosent mean they will ever use them.

I thought you believed AMDZone to be unreliable. Does this mean people can post benchmarks from there?

Maybe I'm missing something, what do these names have to do with Canada or Canadians?

Meltdown, why do you fully capitalize all the subjects of your posts? Is your Caps Lock key stuck down?

overclockers.com said they should name their next chip the "HardOn"...lol

Seriously though, AMDMeltdown, you gotta lay off the crack...That mullet joke was both stupid AND lame.

none of those names are as silly as that dastardly PR rating!

I'd have to agree with Intel_inside there. When I heard that AMD was going to start using PR ratings again for their upcoming Athlon XP processors, I was shocked that AMD decided to go back to the dark ages. The PR ratings aren't useless, but they're not very useful. Even if AMD were to remove the PR ratings, they'd still have a 1.66GHz that is able to compete with a 2.2GHz processor on most apps. It really rather pointless and even insulting for the enthusiast but at least AMD will get more money from OEM buyers.

yeah... i think the PR rating is dumb.
but it seems to be working!
proly becauze there are a hell of alot of idiots out there who dont know the difference between a monitor and a case. :) 

The lack of thermal protection on Athlon's is cunning way to stop morons from using AMD. :)

Damn those are some lame-assed names, I hope they dont use any of them.

You'll have to abide by your own rule, though.

I'm afraid I'll respond with what ever maturity I choose. So until you control me you'll just have to quit crying every time you say something stupid and someone else points it out.

gotta love the personal attacks eh? Get use to it here. Thats all they ever do. I don't have to prove it just read the posts'.

try anandtech. None of them make personal attacks (that i have seen) and they help you no matter in their POV how stupid the question may be. Say you ask what a cpu is. they'll answer you. here, you'll get a smart ass remark with a personal attack on the side after you reply.

join team anandtech! :)  oh wait thats there seti program. hehe. In the seti forum you can ask anything and they are super polite and gives you a warm welcome. Unlike here where the forum cliks' rule. general anandtech forum is nice too.

Just so you know. *shrugs*

have fun!

You're absolutely right although I doubt that he will.

AMEN!!! Some people on this site are so stupid sometimes, they are extreemly mean and start meaningless attacts on others for no reason. You can't go around acting like a 12 year old because others do it too. People need to show a little more respect. Of couse, now here comes the part where some guy who is defending his right to act like a 12 year old, replies to this post and makes some stupid little attact that means nothing to me and just makes him look even more like a 12 year old.

well alot of pc enthusiast forums have that common male 'my pc is bigger than yours' mentality. So I'm not surprised the way alot of people attack each other, especially ones who bring up good points and are 'attacked' by a specific breed of zealot.

Didn't you say you were leaving and never coming back? I might be thinking of someone else.

I was thinking of doing that but didn't bring it up, but people seem to be acting alot more sane lately, so I think I will stay.

Actually, people won't bash you if you don't bash them. Stop calling Matisaro a troll everytime he has a point and does nothing trollish of the kind, for example!
