    Why rename the FAB?

    Make it sound like you have more FAB's than you really do? ;)

    Could be because the innards of the "new" FAB will be all new? I don't know how much kit they have to replace to change from 90 to 65 and then to 45nm

    A lot of retooling will be involved, and also it helps with identification. The new chips they produce will all have new codes they link them to the 'new' fab.

    Because it makes AMD look better? Why else do companies do lots of things?

    Well, my plans are to wait for 45nm native Quad-Core 'Barcelona' . That will be the biggie, in my opinion, in terms of performance/power savings/major OCing. Anyone else agree with me on that, or am I getting my expectations up too high?
