    goldmont? didnt AT mention Airmont as the successor to Silvermont
    knowing skylake is 2015, could goldmont come after airmont

    although gold after silver sounds logical :D

    Something about it just doesn't roll off the tongue like most other Intel codenames do.

    It adds new instructions which are shared with Skylake- coming out at roughly the same time as it would make sense to me.

    Platinum, then Titanium, followed by Signature and ultimately "Black" if they are following the Marketing 101 handbook created by the credit-card industry :p

    But...if Intel really wanted to be savvy and stick with Group 11 elements from the periodic table then they'd follow Goldmont with element 111 (Roentgenium, pronounced runt-GEN-ee-əm) and roll out codename Roentgeniumont. (rolls off the tongue like silk, don't it ;) :D)

    roentgen, now there is a word that's fallen out of use.

    Roentgen discovered and named x-rays. But the science/medical communities called them roentgen rays in his honor.

    What we call Radiology today was previously roentgenology.
