Glad to see they are getting some speed up from mature process, I hope the can put more pressure on intel. One thing that sticks out though is that they are really tightly binning things. 3.0, 3.1 & 3.2? I think intel is usually at least a bit more spread out than that, aren't they? I mean when I got my quad 6600 it was 2.4 and the next higher one was like 2.6 or 2.66 the one after that was 2.93 or 3.0.
BelardoWith all these numbers... wished AMD just renamed the entire Phenom line to something else, considering how "Phenom" failed anyways. The new model numbers make more sense - butPhenom II X4 955 or Phenom II X2 545 ugh! X(core) Model number would be fine. You knew how many cores you were getting.I'd have gone with something like this, Using "Alpga" as some sort of new name.Alpha X2 120Alpha X3 120Alpha X4 120Start the numbers low... the X(core #) makes sense.
Or integrate the number of cores into the name:
Change the last number for speed and the 2nd number for generations. Like 101, 102, 103 are faster versions in the same generation then 110 is the lowest speed of the second gen. If they want a low power line add an L in front of the number, for Black edition or whatever they want to call the high ends add a B or an X in front of the number
