    I know what woodcrest is and everything, but I still haven't got over what Intel is calling their next superchip.

    Sounds like a plant or something. I'm used to "Pentium" Celeron and stuff life that.

    Memorom (sp?), however, sounds like a regular name.

    :p

    CoreDuo was code named Yonah, so it's pretty safe to say that Woodcrest will have a different name once it is available.

    People pay money for good wood chips for their barbecue, so a chip named WOODsomething make sense, especially after they heat up.
