AMD gets XP-ized
An new naming system seems to have emerged. It all strated with Microsoft dropping its year naming scheme for the eXperienced nomer. Well, now AMD is joining the fray according to this article.
The XP designation, sources say, is an unfortunate coincidence. In AMD’s case, the letters XP stand for extra performance. In Windows XP, the XP stands for experience. AMD apparently had been contemplating the branding scheme at the time Microsoft made its announcement.
