The new Intel penrhyn quad CPU is called "new core 2 duo extreme". Just a bit puzzled why its not called "core 4 quad extreme"? anyone put me right.
Play on words i suppose 2xDUO = 4
what a mouthful! I had a problem with 'core 2 duo' after a few pints, but now I have no chance!
I think I read elsewhere on this forum that Intel quad core processors are just two duo processors stuck together, whereas AMD make true quad cores.
thanks everyone for the feedback, adman2's link clear the picture, thanks.
