INTEL drops the name "Skylake" in favor of 6th Gen Core

I thought they never used codenames for advertisement? Like on TV, they always say "4th generation!" or "5th generation!" Never mention the name Haswell or Ivy-Bridge in any commercial. Only techy people like us are aware of these code names.

The same reason why we use "windows 10" and not "threshold"

I make Rainmeter things and other art :D

When marketing, most consumers will understand "6th generation" better than they will Skylake.

if you have to insist you think for yourself, i'm not going to believe you.
