    Intel and AMD both suck when naming their workstation CPU Line the numbers specifically, they need to make them more like desktop, sockets can be
    2610S-1 2610S-2 2610S-4 no need for a 4k series etc
    then v2 v3 w/e

    and amd starting with 7000 series and not 1000 using same socket method S-1

    i gave up doing workstation naming and organization in the CPU database, i hope they get their act together.

    and all the different code names for ultra mobile and mobile and variants.

    needing sub sections for cpus is retarded, same for mobile market L H HQ HE E UH.
    have all ultra low cpus 7700 to 7710 increments 02 04 06 or 1 2 3 4, 7711 to 7720 low power.
    the reason the gpu database is so great and organized is because it makes sense
    *most of the time*

    also i do know its all marketing

    but if things made sense, people wouldn't stray away or get ripped off

    GPU Database

    that's my rant, after having many panic/anxiety attacks not being able to organize the CPU database, i'm devastated because i used to love doing it

    I'd think it would be easier to have a generation, core/thread count, clockspeed naming rank system.

    Like a 4790k would be 4th gen, 4/8/4.0 for 4c,8t and 4.0ghz

    The naming doesn't bother me, it's their propensity to sit on stagnant architecture (Intel), and botch their launch with secrecy (AMD). I really don't see very good options with AMD or Intel lately. You'd think the better competition Ryzen resulted in would yield a better scenario. By the time you shell out for high speed RAM and a MB that supports it, or buy into 2066 and Intel's crappy MVNe drives, it's like you're back to square one with pricing and complexity.

    The CPU names are inconsequential by comparison.
