Veni Vedi VIIV?

So... Intel Corp have registered VIIV...
So?
Well, I'm not sure exactly. But it seems if someone as big as Intel registers a term then they might be considering using it. And making sure no one else uses it.

So VIIV. What does it mean? Well speculation is rife:

VIIV = 64 in really bad Roman Numerals (XLIV for you people who know how to count) so it makes sense that new 64 bit chip system is being produced.

VIIV also looks like it might be a dual core Pentium 5 chip. Apparently. But that implies some mega leap in computing power.

Also, before you conspiracy theorists start coming up with ideas about secret Atlantean technology and serums for eternal life, you might like to consider the fact that Bloomberg has reported:
U.S. stock-index futures rose after Intel Corp., the world's largest
computer-chip maker, said revenue this quarter may exceed expectations
(Bloomberg.com)

So Intel looks like its going to release a new brand of chip. If it isn't, it's playing a really clever game of marketing to boost stocks. What's the truth? Who knows. But I can't wait to find out ...
