Acknowledgement Line(s):

  • Whenever the Pentium® logo appears, the following footnote must also appear: "Intel, the Intel logo, Pentium Inside, and Pentium are trademarks of Intel Corporation or its subsidiaries in the U.S. and/or other countries."

Proper Trademark Usage Rules Include:

  • As with all other trademarks, the Pentium® trademark should be used as an adjective and not as a noun. This means that an appropriate and approved noun from the list above must accompany the Pentium® trademark (e.g., Pentium® processor)
  • The appropriate use of trademark symbols with this trademark is as follows: Pentium® trademark
  • Use the trademark symbol in the first appearance of the trademark in a headline, and/or the first prominent use, and first appearance in the body of text
  • Never hyphenate or abbreviate the Pentium® trademark
  • Never incorporate the Pentium® trademark or any part of the trademark into a third party’s company name, product brand name, or model number
  • For products with an assigned processor number, the processor number must follow the processor brand name (e.g., Pentium® T2000 processor)
  • Processor number font, size, and color must be treated the same as the rest of the brand text mention 
  • The use of Intel® in front of the Pentium® trademark is fine as well. The correct use would be Intel® Pentium® processor.
