I'd like to say no. Because if AMD was ******, then we'd be in for serious price-hikes. Stop pretending you know things.

Jumping on the bandwagon ain't so easy now, huh? Heheheh.

Just teasing.

Yeah. It's the 800-pound gorilla AMD just woke up.

Everything would be much simpler if it was called "Pentium 5". Because everybody was used to Pentium 1-4, so why not Pentium 5?

Wow, my 4927th post...

Allendale's are set to release in Q1 07. Their model numbers will be E4x00. They will be "stripped" down versions. IF this was Celeron to Pentium, they would have less cache, so I'm guessing they will have 1mb cache compared to Conroe's 2mb-4mb.

The Pentium 4 has a bad name right now. The Athlon 64 probably has a better name. True, the Pentium is more recognized, but they wanted to get away from it. Just like how Nvidia didn't use the "FX" after the 5-series.

Core 2 Duo is the name that will replace Pentium. It shouldn't be pentium 5 because the 2 processors are completely different. Conroe is I believe the core (like prescott for the p4) so in the future there will most likely be other cores other than conroe that will still be under the Core 2 Duo name (untill we hit quad core, which will most likely be somethin like Core 4 Duo. doesnt have the same ring tho.)
