AMD: It's not K8L, it's K10

For a long time, we've been nicknaming AMD's next major chip release K8L. In truth, AMD never really called their next generation CPU "K8L". The only time they ever nicknamed this new chip K8L was in imaginary roadmaps that were used a long, long time ago. The "L" in K8L actually stands for "low power", which has been used in the Turion 64 series for a year or two now. AMD has officially stated that their next generation of CPU's has the codename of K10. AMD also assures us that the K10 micro-architecture will be a very large step from what AMD currently offers in the K9 micro-architecture.Source: The Inquirer

lol isnt that what I said above? His was a good point that AMD IS 7 months behind at the moment (because he is right), I think I pointed out that Intel were 3 and a half years behind prior to that.

and considering the c2d's are "only" first gen,they clock very well indeed(well i'd say an easy 100% is very good) imagine what the second gen will bw like,or penryn:D
C2D isnt 1st gen its based off Pentium m and Core duo which makes it 3rd gen
