Intel’s new naming trick makes fast and slow processors look the same

Intel is making some weird naming changes to its processors this year that are certain to confuse people about what they’re buying. As spotted by Laptop Mag, the Core m name is largely going away in favor of Core i, which means it’s going to be much harder to tell exactly how powerful the processor is inside of a new laptop. At least in the short term, that’s a problem because there’s a real difference between the two lines. Core i processors are what you find in most laptops, like the Surface Pro and MacBook Air, and are powerful enough that you don’t have to worry about them handling a modest workload. Core m processors, on the other hand, are what you find in super-thin fanless laptops; they’re less capable and sometimes choke up even from browsing the web.
