    Yes, what if you run out of series numbers like Core i9 9900K? Move another digit or go back to the drawing board with a new naming? Well, it appears Intel will be doing the first and could be using a...

    I don't see the big deal. After 9000 comes 10000. Easier to deal with a naming scheme we already know and mostly understand, then learn a new one.

    which more confusing ?
    10***-series or
    X***-series (chipset been named with X*** and Z*** so this might cause even more confusing) or
    A***-series (hex coding 0-9 a-f)... i personally kinda like it

    for codename initial wont work, so many same intial name
    cascade-lake, coffee-lake etc

    what u guys idea for naming ?
    but i guess human used to simple numbering for new-gen/product
    we almost always interpret higher number = newer / better
    looking for latest product, just find the product with highest number

    Gives to more naming options?? It is already confusing to the average consumer as to with cpu to buy.

    They should start over in the 100's .

    Just make a new line up
    i2 = Pentiums, Celeron
    i4 = i3
    i6 = i5
    i8 = i7
    i8x or i10 = i9

    maybe :p

    why not use the year it came out?...ie: i7-2019 - i9-2020 then add an X or K for the high end part.

    and maybe an S for the slow ones.

    It would actually make sense if they used the number to refer to the number of cores:
    i2 DualCore
    i4 QuadCore
    etc
    Great idea, but not exciting for the marketing department.

    Not for i2, because originaly i3 was meaning "I"ntel core"3", and so the i2 should be the core2 line.
    i0 might be a bad idea too (even in " i0 gold KFC my dog's anniversary limited edition :) " )

    But i agree, 4 digits should be the limit of easy to read and remember....

    Years can end up equally confusing, especially since the entire lineup is not always being released at once. For example, the 9900K is clearly a 2018 CPU. But what about many of the other 9000 series, which were released in 2019? Are those 2019 CPUs? Or 2018? They are very closely related to the 9900K afterall, which is a 2018, just smaller.

    Tieing yourself down to something like the year is not flexible enough for how hardware is being released. So either you follow it very strictly, and its confusing, or you relax it - and it ends up just like any other arbitrary number and loses much of its meaning.

    It's always been a headache, we've just had it for so long that we've grown numb to it.

    Makes a lot of sense to me. Though I would adjust it like this:
    i# yyccs
    Where # is the performance tier, yy is the year, cc is the core count, and s is the X, K, U, etc suffix.

    Enough numbers already.
    Name it after their worth, demographic target audience and performance.
    Nifty, Mighty and Epic.:rolleyes:
    Wait a minute, EPYC is already taken.
    Intel's naming scheme is beyond salvation.

    They could slice the last "0" and everything would be fine.
