    Honestly it doesn't matter. Intel's site or wikipedia is probably your best bet if you're bored on a sunday though :)
    Every codename has a different wikipage, with a very nice box at the bottom which shows it in line with the other codenames.

    It's crazy to be sure. But then they're not exactly designed with the end-user in mind. Not that the consumer brand names are, either. Like mobile phone tariffs, I'm pretty sure they're designed to be mystifying enough that we all end up with more than we really need ;)

    Right now, as far as I understand it, Core ix is where it's at. :D

    You know, if you have the time and ability, making such a chart wouldn't be the worst idea in the world. You could put it on wikipedia, and other people could follow up and add farther back and in the future.

    Or you could use a piece of paper and a pencil, post it on your wall, and tape it above your computer screen. Relax and enjoy the stress-free knowledge that you will forever be able to know the order of Intel's production series.
