    Whats your name proposals for the new AMD cpu?

    A name tells a lot.
    What do you think is good names for:
    1. Bobcat
    2. Llano
    3. BD

    Here is my take:

    1. Athlon
    2. Phenom
    3. Opteron

    TBH I think Bobcat sums up a small and versitile CPU quite well. Shame the won't be marketed as Bobcat.

    Bulldozer implies strenght and sheer force. A good name for a high end chip. Llano, I'd be happy for them to call that one Phenom III

    I am with the less-creative people:

    AMD Fusion Neo for Bobcat (mainly because of the BGA package), and
    AMD Fusion Premium for Llano (with GPU, the APU is better than just a CPU).

    Okay, I admit I don't have what it takes to be a marketing people who often came up with crazy brand names. *Ouch*

    EDIT: I don't think AMD will come up with Fusion Gamer*, though...

    * <sarcasm> Hey, Gillette. Same brand again? </sarcasm>

    Bobcat is the core, so you should really be looking for a codename for Ontario. And Bulldozer is also targeted at the high-end client market, while Opteron is a server brand.

    I have a feeling that AMD might dump the Phenom brand, because let's face it, it was never all that successful.

    But fine, I'll play: I think Fusion products might end up named Fusion, or maybe Synergy, I think it sounds good and sums it up pretty well. So perhaps Synergy/Fusion Lite for Ontario and just Synergy/Fusion for Llano.

    No idea about Bulldozer…

    Maybe they can stick with mythology names, Chimeras for Fusion products (a mixture of different beasts) and Titans for Bulldozer.

    I think they would come up with their own names instead, probably pick a suitable word and make a straightforward and catchy variant out of it. Just like Phenom is originally from the word Phenomenon.

    Making the brand too complicated will only make the brand worthless.
    Who would buy an AMD Chimeras <insert random English letters and numbers as the model number> APU?

    They'd better be used as codenames instead, although they were already bad codenames...

    An ontario could just be OEM like:
    AMD dual core 2.1 GHz Fusion cpu with 3 GB ATI dx 11 Windows 7 gamer graphics
    - LOL its comming
