It'll be i7 5xxx, i5 5xxx, i3 4xxx or something along these lines.
Or, they could go iX, i8, i6.
Pentium 8. Calling it now.
Drop Celeron/Pentium branding, instead call them Core i1. Leave the i3/i5/i7 the same, but move LGA-2011 chips to a Core i9 branding. See, now that at least makes -some- sense...
The hell with all this branding talk. A core is a core is a core. The i7 four years ago is vastly different from an i7 now. Whether they call it an i7, i8 or i9 doesn't matter.
Knowing intel they will probably call their first 8 core an i15.
While I can see the time when we release an 8 core processor in the desktop space (I have no clue when); I would be shocked if they called it an I8 ("I ate") just doesnt seem to make good marketing sense.
Nothing about the i7 branding from Nehalem to Ivy Brigde makes much sense.
Calling both socket 1336 and 1156 for "i7" was retarded, please let PR know they need to use their brain and eg. have called 1156 for i7 and 1336 for i9...lot lets confusing.
Well 8 is a lucky number in asia. And asia is the main market now.
It was no coincedence that Toyota(8 chars in japanese) is called Toyota and not Toyoda(7 chars in japanese).
But that being said, I am sure both Haswell and Broadwell keeps i3/5/7. Haswell is the 4000 series.
It's 10, not 7 in katakana (brush strokes, not characters). And it's a Chinese thing with 8, not really Japanese.
It's somewhat a myth that the reason was a lucky number. It's coincidence.
Its even stated on Toyotas website:
Are you guys serious? This sucks. No way I am buying another i7. I'm waiting for the i8.
*unless you are AMD
Makes for nice PR doesn't it. It wasn't the main reason.
Another classic Tweakboy useless post. Asking the SAME question over and over, but just changing the words around.
