    i.e. when people see i686 they think it's not an amd cpu? then we should change that naming scheme, right?

      Intel called it EM64T. I don't know who came up with x86_64, but, IIRC, Microsoft calls it ia64 (Intel/AMD 64).

      (Plus, there may be trademark law reasons... or just plain market confusion reasons. Probably not a good idea to sell a "Microsoft Google" or a "Toyota Ford".)

        "i686" isn't the same thing as if it had been called "Intel686". That's why Microsoft chose "ia64" (Intel/AMD 64) in place of "amd64" as an architecture-naming keyword.

          "IA" in IA-64 stands for "Intel Architecture". That's not the same architecture as AMD64.

            Dear INTEL, TSMC and Samsung marketing departments,

            Your node naming convention is barely understandable. For the sake of users, buyers and professionals, I humbly suggest alternatives.

            (1) You can borrow from other parts of the computer industry and use a denomination loved by everybody. Example:

            Node 1
            Node 2
            Node 2.1
            Node 3
            Node 3.1
            Node 3.1 Gen 1
            Node 3.1 Gen 2
            Node 3.2 Gen 1
            Node 3.2 Gen 2
            Node 3.2 Gen 2 2x2

            As you can see in the USB world they came up with something that everybody understand and like.

            (2) Alternatively, you can use whatever names you want because different processes whose results barely have something in common can be named in any manner. Example:

            Better Node
            Uber Duper Node
            Ludicrous Speed Node
            La La Land Node
            Stochastic Gust Node
            Heptagonal Fearless Kingpin Node
            Intellectualized Alternative Fact Node
            Totaler Krieg Node

            As you can see, a pure horizontal naming convention gives you great vertical effect.

            Thank you very much for your attention.

              Funny, because I'm pretty sure that's what Microsoft's download centre was using in the filenames for downloads meant for people running a 64-bit build of Windows on 64-bit AMD Athlon, Opteron, and Duron processors.

              In fact, I remember them having retroactively re-christened "x86" as "ia32" in the filenames of the 32-bit counterparts to those downloads.

                Intel sucks, AMD could suck even a lot less if the managers want to...

                  Putting hybrid bonding, PowerVia and RibbonFET on the roadmap were significant announcements. Also the early access to the high-NA EUV tools. Also the info that they have the EUV tools needed for the Intel 4 products.
