Better processors generally have better architectures. An architecture (in processor terms) is the layout of the individual circuits and chips in a processor. Faster CPUs, such as an Athlon 64 chip, have complex architectures, with multiple arithmatic logic units, lots of cache, et cetera, whilst slower, cheaper CPUs have simpler architectures, with perhaps only one or two ALUs and low-end cache. As for the naming of the chips themselves, well that depends on the manufacturer's choice. All of Intel's chips - The Pentium II "Deschutes", the Pentium III "Coppermine" and the P4 "Northwood" were all named after rivers that run close by Intel's headquarters. AMD also named a few of their chips after towns and cities, however the more powerful ones have powerful names (Clawhammer, Sledgehammer) - It just makes them sound cooler. yeltongue.gif

No - Remember AMD are just using these names to advertise their product, doesn't necessarily mean they're any faster then the San Diego, just that they are relatively powerful. In any case, the San Diego core is currently the best. Unless you can afford and AMD Opteron yeltongue.gif
