Default The Pentium Name Goes Into Partial Retirement

Intel will sell its upcoming Yonah processor for notebooks and thin desktops under two designations, according to sources: Duo and Solo. The Duo label will essentially mean that the chip inside has two cores; notebooks with a single-core Yonah will sport a Solo designation.

As a result, the Pentium M designation for the company's mobile chips vanishes, sources say, meaning the brand name that helped Intel establish its position in the market will fade out in a key product family. Server chips stopped carrying the Pentium name years ago, but the name is still used on current desktop and notebook chips. Credit and More Information: CNet News

Be interesting to see if they ever reverse the "gutting" of the L1, which allowed them to save face when the P3>1Ghz crashed and they were eating smoke in AMD's wake.

edit: after scanning a few pages at newegg, I see they are ungutting L1 a little
