Intel Going With “Core i7” Name?

The Chinese website Expreview claims that Intel will be naming its Nehalem processors “Core i7” and has posted a couple Core i7 logos as their proof. Who knows, as odd as the name is, it could be true. Then again, whipping up Intel logos in Photoshop isn’t actually difficult either. I guess we’ll all know soon enough. Thanks to [H] forum member gaspah for the link.

That should give you a warm fuzzy feeling inside drizzt - look at me I am a convert an before I was the anti fanboy...

This new mane i don't think is accurate it might be a name they are planning or toyed with for a while but it just hasnt got the same ring to it.
