san diego is better because it has a larger cache, but they are also more money because they don't make processors below 3700+

That true? I've never heard that before, but I guess it makes sense. But, what about cores not named after cities, or where do they go after they pick the biggest city?

lol I haven't heard of this 'bigger city name' stuff, but in this case I suppose it's true......the ONLY difference between venice and san diego is that the san diego has 1mb L2 cache vs the venice having 512kb L2 cache, so basically it comes down to which one you can afford.

Guess we can look forward to CPUs named "supercalafrajilisticexpialadotious" in the future then
