Intel will rebrand (rename) their processors in 2008 for the reasons
shown in this message. (We see that Intel is following IBM's lead in
renaming and rebranding hardware!)
I invite you to read the comments on Slashdot and then post your
comments here in midrange-l about the challenges and opportunities that
Intel and IBM face in rebranding their hardware!
Eric (the article on
the Intel rebranding)

Intel has undergone a comprehensive review of our processor and platform
brands in order to :
* Simplify choices for consumers and business
* Provide consistency and clarity for messaging
* Create an efficient, less complex and sustainable brand roadmap
The result is a simpler, easier to understand brand selection for both
consumers and business which :
* Focuses efforts on fewer brands and creates alignment between
new platform brands and processors
* Simplifies badges for clarity with target audience and
eliminates use of brand to communicate product features, such as number
of cores, in favor of marketing
* Better supports our current and future products
Color "swoosh" added to all platform and premium client brands to create
consistency and reinforce that these brands represent Intel's best
All brands now also contain "inside" to enhance consistency, to
reinforce Intel's role and heritage across all our product offerings and
to help drive processor relevance in system purchase decisions.
For server and workstation brands, the font size of the offer brand has
been increased to enhance visibility and retention and make them more
consistent with the font treatments on the client brands.
