Well "Opteron"... It's official new name for the Hammer... and nobody likes it (at least for now). So I would like to read some sugestions from you guys.

I like this game.

How about "Athlon Dilerium"

or "Detrithon"

or "Insanipu"...tis a silly one >blush, wink<

Or Quadrathon...on, no...I let the cat out of the bag...that's their codename for the new Nasa SC.


If I don't get my 90THz AMD Quadraplex system soon, I'm afraid I may just combust right here.

It sounds okay but Xeon sounds cooler :cool:

"Opteron" ill grow on people. The Duron was slammed hard and most people dont care anymore. Save with Pentium, I hated that when it first came out but its so old and worn I dont even think about it.....

Jesus saves, but Mario scores!!!

I think opteron is really retarded. But like the man said, it will probably grow on people. There was trademark patents filed a while back by AMD. Opteron was one of them. There were other equally gay names filed for as well. I think they can be found on the register.

Why is it that all AMD's names have to ryme with "moron", what kind of people work in their marketing department anyway? Never mind, I think I just answered my own question.

Well, then how about Celeron, ooops, that's taken. Wait, isn't it supposed to have 3 levels of cache? How about Triathlon?

What's the frequency, Kenneth?

Opteron is just *okay*. The problem is that it doesn't flow that well. Pentium flows, Itanium flows, Celeron flows, Athlon flows, Duron kinda flows, but Opteron just doesn't seem to roll off the tongue as easy, so it doesn't sound as good. But, it's not that bad and will probably seem better with time. I still think they should have kept Hammer, but, I'm not a marketing exec. :p

I still say that naming the chip Chimera (after a powerful mythological hybrid monster) is a <i>lot</i> more suited for a power-house hybrid CPU that can run both 32-bit and 64-bit x86 code easily than Opteron is. Plus, you've got a perfect marketting graphic to use right there that will really stand out. (Imagine a 3D hologram sticker that comes with the CPU that has a wicked picture of a Chimera with the slogan 'Chimera Inside'. Who could resist <i>that</i>?)

I like that name...maybe you'll just have to pitch the idea to intel. Better copyright that one before they snag it for free and take all the credit...or better yet, wait until it flies, and then you can throw in a profit-cut on the suit.

Think of the marketing for the Triathlon though.

You could... say... use a Gerble as your mascot (Ray from Blockbuster?), have him doing a triathlon... riding a bike, swimming, running... show how tough and determined and fast he is...

You could make a little hologram sticker with a gerble in a wheel for the "Triathlon Inside"

Or, maybe just call it a Gerble, just so when someone asks if you have a gerble in your server you can say "Yes"

If I lived in the Old West, instead of a six shooter I think I'd carry a soldering iron. Then if people made fun of it, I'd say "This isn't any ordinary soldering iron, this is the Soldering Iron of Justice.". Then they'd feel bad, because they were making fun of the Soldering Iron of Justice, and they'd probably buy me a beer.

And if I lived in ancient Japan, I'd wear a rabbit on my head. Then every time someone came at me with a sword, I could just hold the cute fluffy bunny out and they'd feel so bad about slicing it in half that they wouldn't kill me after all. Then we could go out for saki and walk away as friends.

Then one day, I'd have so many friends that if anyone threatened my life, they'd have to answer to a thousand or so pissed-off Samurai and Ninja and they'd run screaming when I show them my rice scroll with the names of all of my friends on it. Then I could even get a good laugh out of it. :) 

Then one day I'd have so many friends that me, my bunny, and my friends would all overthrow the government and I'd become the next emperor and reign an era of bunny-peace with free saki for all who come to my palace.

And no, that isn't peyote in the locket around my neck. Honest. It's just peppermint. Really.

Kids really like to have jokes played on them. One time I told him I was going to take him to Disneyland. We drove way out into the country and stopped at an old burned down barn, and I said "Oops, looks like Disneyland burned down.", and then we drove home.

There used to be a woodpecker that lived outside my parent's bedroom window. It would peck day and night, all the time, just peck peck peck. One day, my dad killed himself.

When I was little, we had an uncle that we called Uncle Caveman. We called him that because he lived in a cave, and every once in a while, he'd eat one of us. Later I found out Uncle Caveman wasn't our uncle at all, he was a bear.

Maybe in order to understand mankind we have to look at that word itself. MANKIND. Basically, it's made up of two separate words "mank" and "ind." What do these words mean? It's a mystery and that's why so is mankind.

Instead of having "answers" on a math test, they should just call them "impressions," and if you got a different "impression," so what, can't we all be brothers?

I wish I would have a real tragic love affair and get so bummed out that I'd just quit my job and become a bum for a few years, because I was thinking about doing that anyway.

If you ever crawl inside an old hollow log and go to sleep, and while you're in there some guys come and seal up both ends and then put it on a truck and take it to another city, boy, I don't know what to tell you.

During the Middle Ages, probably one of the biggest mistakes was not putting on your armor because you were "just going down to the corner."

"Rather was confronted about 11 p.m. while walking on Park Avenue. When he tried to walk away, he was punched from behind and knocked to the ground. The attacker then chased Rather into a building and kicked him several times in the back. [...]

"The mystery may be solved: Dan Rather has identified the man he says beat him up on the street in 1986 while demanding to know 'Kenneth, what is the frequency?' The CBS anchorman said his assailant was William Tager, now in prison for killing an NBC stagehand outside the Today show in 1994. Tager was convinced the media had him under surveillance and were beaming hostile messages to him, and he demanded that Rather tell him the frequency being used, according to a forensic psychiatrist who examined Tager after the NBC shooting. Rather was told by the psychiatrist, Dr. Park Dietz, that Tager was almost certainly his attacker. The anchorman identified Tager from pictures supplied by the New York Daily News. 'There's no doubt in my mind that this is the person,' Rather said."

Follow my logic here:

The bottom of the Hammer (especially sledge) is covered in pins. There was a midevial torture device that had a lot of pins in it. Called the Iron Maiden. Informally, it was known as 'the bitch'
So I propose we call the new Hammer - Bitch

It works in a lot of situations:
" Yeah i got my new bitch installed"
" I can get that damn bitch installed"
" My bitch is really fast"
" My bitch is broke, had to buy a new one"
" Man my bitch runs really cold"
" I overclocked my bitch, she really puts out now"
" Sit here, and try my new bitch out"
