Intel unveiled the Brand of new processors Nehalem : successor of Core 2 Duo Series coming in end of this year!!
- 1st gen architecture = 8086
- 2nd gen architecture = 286
- 3rd gen architecture = 386
- 4th gen architecture = 486
- 5th gen architecture = P5 (Pentium)
- 6th gen architecture = P6-based (Pentium Pro, Pentium II, Pentium III, Pentium-M, Core, Core 2)
- (6th gen branched to “P68” aka Pentium IV)
- 7th gen architecture = i7 Nehalem
At this time, Intel provides no guidance what i7 means, how i7 will evolve over time. Our first impression is that i7 much more technical name than Core 2 Duo. But we have no idea if that will be the general impression of the market and if it was Intel’s intention to come up a cold and very technical name. However, we do are quite sure that this new processor will create even more confusion for average PC buyers.
