Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Reports that Intel will call its Katmai chips the Pentium III were rubbished by industry analysts today. They said: "That story is dead old. When The Register first ran it a year ago (passim) we decided to be dead controversial and keep the Katmai name. She explained: "Let's face it, Katmai is dead sexier than the Pentium III. Next thing you know, we'll be calling Willamette the Pentium V, even though it is actually the P9." She said: "When we get up to the Pentium VI, Intel would have had to hire a huge team of consultants to choose what it would be called. Last time they did that, with x.86 technology, it cost them a fortune. The consultants even suggested the Sexium as a title." Intel is now expected to call the Merced and McKinley the Katmai sixes and sevens, hoping that Mount St Helens won't blow again. ®
