    So wait, we're going to have Atom, Celeron, Pentium, Core i3, Core i5, AND Core i7 all at the same time?

    ... and WHY exactly haven't they fired their entire marketing department, yet?

    So a Core i7 could be a nice 1336 or a useless 1156 socket. Wonderful.

    The Core i'x' should be representative of the socket it uses. I hope online retailers have the sense to distinguish between all these.
    Bad move Intel.

    Why is the socket 1156 useless?? IMAO the design approach for the socket 1156 will give us more tidy (cheaper?) motherboards (simplified layout with single chipset design) and eventually smaller motherboards too (DTX or ITX).
    I've always thought the socket 1336 as a Skulltrail substitute for the enthusiasts (after all this socket is also for Xeons, right?).

    Er... wat? Have Intel and Nvidia got a little partnership going on here?

    Why are ATI the only ones with sane people naming the products?

    Wat?

    If they're phasing out socket 1366 anyway, Core i7 will be almost exclusively 1156 by the sounds of things, with lower end chips being i5.

    Its still a bloody mess though.

    i could not help but point out you're using the same photo time and time again.
    you should maybe put a cheesecake photo instead. or something else that's nice to look at. or another i7 photo.(i assume this photo is relix holding an i7)

    will people stop sayin 1366 is been phased out.

    it is just becoming more workstation orientated, later on this yeah 6core intel chip (forogt name) is coming out on skt 1366 not 1156

    i dont care for the naming schemes either, they are flooding the market with too many products. there should be two sockets for intel like there is now the LGA775 for desktop and LGA771 for workstation/server. the rumors were making this huge deal about the core i7 being a big product which it is, but i was disappointed with the announcement of the 1156 being i5 socket because of the upgrade ability limitation when the core i7 is 1366. I feel they are mixing the desktop market and the server/workstation market with how they launched the core i7 and pushed the 1366 socket to the desktop users when the 1156 socket is going to be mainstream.

    Holy ****, Intel, you suck. NVIDIA is bad ,but this is just confusing and makes everything five times more difficult for anyone who doesn't buy through an OEM. Bad move Intel.

    P.S. Thanks for phasing out the existing Core i7 processors. I guess the price/performance ratio on the i7 920 is just too good for the end user, huh?

    Richard, as far as solutions it's quite easy to solve this naming catastrophe from Intel... and that is to buy AMD Phenom II LOL ;) j/k

    Lol@Lynnfield branding as Core i7 and i5 that will really confuse matters!

    Nvidia's brand system now looks sane compared to this.. At least you know what range your card is in roughly... Although the 9800GTX or is it a 9800GTX+ or GTS250?? Well I now have no clue to what to buy from intel, an i3 or i5 or i7, what I can gt any of them for each socket, wiat, how do I know which socket each ones for... Are they only bringing out 3 processors for each socket, so i3 is 920, i5 940 and i7 965???

    As far as 1366 affordability goes, it's pretty dead.
