Default Names of future Intel microarchitectures revealed?

According to some sources, Intel's upcoming Rockwell microarchitecture has been renamed to Broadwell, and its successors will be called Skylake and Skymont.

However, all of the information seems to have originated from SemiAccurate, which is described as a "satire" site. Moreover, the original article was posted on April Fools' Day, which makes it even more suspect.

Is there any truth to this?

With that provenance, the only way it would be true is if the right person at Intel read the rumor and liked the suggestion!

Who cares. All we seem to have is names, nothing else. A rose by any other name ...

Details. Where are the details?

And presumably after that is Skynet.
