As they say, all good things must come to an end and in this case it's Intel's much beloved Q6600 processor which brought fun and frills to many enthusiasts and overclockers for nearly two years running.

 

Be prepared to say goodbye to Intel's Q6600

 

Come the first quarter of next year, the beginnings of a phase-out will take place as Intel shifts it toward an end-of-lifecycle during the second quarter where we'll see the wonder chip dissapear off the market for good.

 

In the meantime, expect to see the CPU drop in price to help vendors clear their inventory towards the end of the year.
