'I name thee Core i7'

According to the folks over at Expreview, Intel's new CPU's will be relabelled as 'Core i7'. They also stated that the chips will be announced on August 11th, 2008 with a Q4 2008 release date. There will be 3 Bloomfields to enter PC market later this year, and the 999USD top-of-the-line Bloomfield is the only Core i7 Extreme Edition processor currently revealed, said Expreview.

There is speculation as to what the '7' in the title denotes, and The Inquirer have shared their thoughts on this:

Why “i7” you ask? Well, we can guess what it *isn’t* - it is definitely not the seventh-generation Intel architecture (that would be the Netbust marchitecture). It could be, however, that Intel discovered some sort of Haxor dialect and they’re actually saying “Core it” – or their product code just tripped the 80777 number - but I’m just grasping at straws here. Seven is considered to be unlucky, sad or tragic in China, tho’…

 
 
Whatever Intel's reasoning for the rumoured name choice, we look forward to the new CPU launch.

As you all may well know I plan to stick with XP until the next Windows as I view Vista as a marketing ploy with very little gains for me.


I completely agree. I use XP because I have to (app support and games etc.), otherwise I use Ubuntu. :)

No you've taken what i said and twisted it lol,

their will always be more patches for compatibility as newer software/hardware are released but what i mean is that

they should of gone to ea,ubisoft,creative,nvidia etc etc and had a look at how their software is structured so that miocrosoft can create amazing compatibility on all of their software not just released it with no compatibility what so ever, and hope for the best and all the manufactorers out their to releases patches ASAP

MS did give all the major players a shout in on Vista and they gave them plenty of opporunity to develop drivers for it. Hell I had Vista for about a year prior to release. If only I could code :D

The problem is lack of cooperation between companies.
