Intel confirms Core 2 Duo to drop ‘Duo’ name
While Core 2 Extreme, Celeron and Xeon will keep their original names, the mobile front will also be changed. Centrino Duo will become ‘Intel Centrino Processor Technology’ and Centrino Pro will become ‘Intel Centrino with vPro Technology.’
Intel’s brand logo stickers will also be changed in the process.
Intel responded to this report in saying that the changes will simplify the choices for consumers and businesses, provide consistency and clarity for messaging, and create an efficient, less complex and more sustainable brand roadmap, while minimizing the impact to customers.
