Intel to phase out 21 45nm processors

Written by Nick Farell


Clearing the path to the Sandy Bridge
As Intel gets close to releasing its new Sandy Bridge processor it has decided that it will be the “night of the Long Knives” for more than 21 45nm processors.

According to Digitimes Intel already issued product discontinuance notice for its Core i7-975X earlier this quarter with end of lifecycle which will take place in the first quarter of 2011. The Core i5-750 will go in the third quarter. As for 45nm quad-core products, four processors including Core 2 Quad Q9650 and five more processors including Core 2 Quad Q9300, 9505 and Q8400 will receive PDN the chop in the third quarter.

For the dual-core, Core 2 Duo E8600 and E8500 are already doomed, with Core 2 Duo E7500 and E7600 scheduled to go at the end of the next year. The last call has been made on the Pentium E6300, while Pentium E5600 will go in the third quarter. Pentium E5600 and E6600 will be toast in the first quarter of 2011. The Celeron E3200 and E3300 will see PDN in the first and the fourth quarter of 2011, respectively.

Intel wants to launch 10 new processors including quad-core Core i7-2600 and 2500, Core i5 2400 and 2300, and dual-core Core i3-2120 and 2100.  Intel said that the Quad-core processors will consume only 95W with dual-core CPUs to use 65W.

Good riddance, it's hard to be emotional about outdated technology when newer, faster, more efficient and BETTER technology is replacing it. Funny how I can get all nostalgic about games, videos and music, but I don't give a damn about an ATI Radeon 9700 or a core 2 duo 6300.

There will be a Core i5-2500, not i7-2500!

No wonder they are being phased out. No one wants to buy them

Perhaps if they waited some... AMD could help 'bulldozer' these parts into the landfill?
Wish AMD would get its 'finger out', I want bulldozer/69xx combo.

Can't wait for 2500K, this one will have the best value.

My i5-750 on my EVGA P55 has been an awesome performer in overclocking, low power consumption, and stability. Sandy Bridge will have to be pretty special for me to upgrade.

Quoting lucserp:
There will be a Core i5-2500, not i7-2500!

Thankfully someone is awake... basic facts authors please.

i5 is 2400 and 2500, i7 is 2600 and above. Not so hard. Unless of course you know something we don't, as opposed to this mistake being one of the usual quota of 7 'typos' in a Fud article.
