Clarification: It's NOT a processor.

The Intel Viiv (pronounced "Vive" and rhymes with five) is a brand of Media Center PC's introduced by Intel. Intel claims each Viiv-based PC will feature dual-core processing, remote control operation, gigabit ethernet controller and wireless networking. Optionally, a Viiv-based PC will function as a personal video recorder with the addition of a TV tuner card. Intel Quick Resume technology will allow you to turn the PC on and off in a few seconds (after first boot) like a normal VCR or DVD player.

Basically, Intel is coming out with new pre-built Media Center PC's that will be pretty damn awesome as the new Conroe core comes out.

Definately. Media Center PC's are very nice and are a great alternative to TiVo, provided you can fork out the money.

Eh, Alienware is okay. I'm more for Falcon Northwest and VooDoo PC.

So what's Intel going to name their new CPU? I'm sure it's not going to be Pentium 5 and Pentium 4 is what we're using now.

Still?!?! I thought they were going to have a new name to go with their new look now. You would think that by dropping the net burst architecture and rebuilding it, they would at least change the name to a Pentium 5 or something.
