The following is dripping with sarcasm. Exclusive to 3DS discussion boards. I have recently come across a document that list the top 5 rejected names for the Hammer processors. 1. Dorkeron 2. Nerderon 3. Geekeron 4. Cantselleron 5. Lameron Geez. AMD engineers bust their butt making one of the best processors seen in a long time and marketing comes it and screws it all up. Leave it as Sledgehammer. I mean, think about it. AMD doesn't have a lot of television time, but a processor with the name Sledgehammer. At least that would stick out. Another thing, if you say to a group of people you're gonna buy a Sledgehammer, you don't sound like a total geek. You say you're gonna buy an Opteron, even to your geeky friends, you sound like uber-geek. Now we have to wait 6 months or so for AMD to rename the core to something cool like they did with the Thunderbird. Nobody refers to them by their class name, Athlon. They call them Thunderbirds or T-birds. Man, now I have to invest in a disguise so no one recognizes me when I ask for one of these things. Can you guys think of any other names they may have passed on?
