How different are they? Is there any knowlegde about what the letters
mean? ie. do dhg, ehg and hf share some "h" feature while thf and thg
share "t"? Or is it more or less random, or even big internal changes
like for the ICH southbridges?

I don't particularly like the underscore, but w83627th sounds good.
