As we say goodbye to the age old "Pentium" naming scheme for good, Intel have finally decided on the official shelf names for their upcoming desktop "Conroe" and notebook "Memrom" CPUs. These will both be branded as "Core 2 Duo" processors, with high-end Extreme edition chips stamped as "Core 2 Extreme" models.
Details incl. some brief roadmap info can be sourced over at DailyTech folks.
Intel has just passed us word about a new branding decision for the upcoming second generation Core processors. Intel's first generation desktop Core processor, Conroe, will carry the moniker Core 2 Duo, suplementing the 65nm Netburst Presler micro-architecture. Notebook processors, earlier dubbed Merom, will also carry the Core 2 Duo moniker even though the processors are very different than the desktop Core 2 Duo chips. The highest end desktop processors, previously named Extreme Edition, will be labeled as Core 2 Extreme opposed to the mainstream Core 2 Duo.
