    I'm confused by the last two digits, "Future upgrade functions" does that mean it'll be used in the future to mean something?

    Like Intel is doing with the "50s" and "20s" of their Core 2s.

    what about working in the word "boobs" to the name?

    Because hearing AMD marketing execs talking about "Boobs processors" makes my inner-12 year old chuckle with glee :D

    fine fine.. I'll add something constructive ... I'm not really sure if this will really simplfy their brand recognition at all.. sounds like it will be confusing at first

    Still too complicated; think back to the Intel Pentium through PIII there the numbers represented the clock speed and made it easy for us to defferentiate between them.

    They just don't want people to be able to easily compare their product to the competition.

    LOL The BS CPU is a stupendous idea for AMD to implement

    Woot GP7260. Sounds like a made up piece of technology from a b-rate sci-fi movie. I like it though, kinda makes it sound important. Might be a little overcomplicated for the average consumer though.

    I don't really care about the model numbers because I, like most of you, will have the whole method memorized in a few weeks. The average users won't get it but they don't know what the current system means, either, so they really aren't losing any ground. However, I am really pleased to see a manufacturer place a rough description of the power consumption in the name of their processor. I care about silence, so I care about power, so I'll really enjoy not having to look that up separately.

    Well I've known about the power consumption for a while now but it's nice too see it confirmed!

    *grins as his tiny super PC plans actually seem to be working*

    A-65W-4Core-2.3Ghz-Futureproof

    B-40W-1Core-1.5Ghz-2nd Rev. Die

    How hard can it be to just make a simple naming scheme like that instead of using BS crap like G, B, L, and P, S, E or whatever. This whole technology world needs to get ahold of itself.

    well it makes more sense than intels naming system

    not that either of them are easy for the layman to understand

    Yakyb: I'm right there with you on the G*7, but why a P? Remember that with the middle letter, power consumption, larger numbers are worse, not better, and that the P is the hottest and most expensive to run. A GE7, on the other hand, would probably be the top-end processor.
