Intel's Chip Naming Policy
Reuters reports that Intel announced that they would no longer be using processor speed as part of the name of upcoming processors.
Instead, Intel plans on introducing model numbers:
Intel's new model numbers give each Intel processor brand a series number. Within desktop computer chips, for instance, the low-end Celeron chip will be given the 300 series, the high-end Pentium 4 will be given the 500 series label, and its Pentium 4 Extreme Edition will be given the 700 series.
The move is expected to cause some confusion and require some reeducation of consumers.
