Easy with those jokes, mates ! I would like to think that the name of this chip has been inspired by my longtime use, application and deployment of Intel technology over the past 40 years :)

14nm? Christ that's tiny, but still it seems Moore's Law is coming to an end.

Anyway, here's hoping to they pair it with higher graphic capabilities than previous offerings of Atom.

Nah, Intel plans on a 10nm rollout in 2015 with a 7nm on tap for 2017.

Bra swell? Who comes up with these wonky Intel names?

Though the real question is: will it be the first Atom-related chip to not suck? Atom is the red-headed stepchild at Intel, the name must be burned more than even "Celeron" at this point.

Probably due to finding a name on Google that will not be immediately sued for violating priors. Here, Brasswell just follows Broadwell that followed Haswell. Sandy Bridge led to Ivy Bridge. Just names.

Intel usually names their chips after locations. In this case it could be Braswell, Georgia. Of course it could be something pretty random as well, hopefully someone will elaborate on that.

I Google Earth Braswell, GA. Pop 379 and consists of 4 buildings "downtown". Heh.

Here I was thinking it was "Like Haswell's little brother, BRAH"
