    I though ViiV (supposedly rhymes with five...) was a marketing word for a group of specs, simalar to how Centrino was used - i.e. Is it a Core CPU, has it got Wireless, is its thermal temp < x, etc etc, which means the CPU's are the same.

    I've seen a few threads recently asking about Viiv, such as This one. As has already been mentioned, I see Viiv as just being a set of standards for PC components (not just the CPU) and AFAIK all core2duo CPU's are Viiv complient.
