Atom D2700 last shipment in late Q3 2012

Written by Fuad Abazovic



Product discontinuance for tray SKUs


If you were thinking about buying the latest 32nm Atom, something like the Atom D2700, better do it quickly.

Intel has just notified its partners that Atom D2700, clocked at 2.13GHz, has entered death row as of April 30th. This CPU entered Product Discontinuance Program Support phase four days ago and Last Product Discontinuance Orders will be accepted up to June 29th. After this date orders are non-cancelable and non-returnable.
 
This will finally lead to Last Product Discontinuance Shipment date in September 28th 2012 and after that there won’t be any new shipments. Our sources are telling us that this decision just affects the fastest 2GHz+ Atom 32nm CPUs and slower parts will continue to ship.

The replacement part is already out. The D2550, clocked at 1.86GHz with 1MB of cache, will take the place of the D2700 place and we are hearing that low yields of these 2GHz+ parts are to blame for this product discontinuance decision.

Only when Atom shrinks to 22nm you can expect something faster than the D2700 but next generation parts are expected next year.
