Pentium OUT - Say Hi To Core 2 Duo
Well, it's the end of a era! I remember making the jump from my Amiga 1000 and in to a 386 back in 1986 .. and soon after came the Pentium chip which was CUTTING EDGE AND SUPER FAST!!! Oh how I look back on those days with a chuckle of longing for simpler times; but I digress.
Intel has announced that it has officially discontinued the Pentium program laying down new ground for competing head to head with AMD.
Intel celebrated a major milestone this week, officially closing the books on the Pentium era with its launch of the Core 2 Duo, the company's most important product to come out in 13 years. "This is not just an incremental change; this is a revolutionary leap," Intel CEO Paul Otellini said at a launch event in Santa Clara, Calif., on Thursday. The last time the company held such an event at its headquarters was when it introduced the Pentium processor in 1993.
