Intel phasing out 6 low end CPUs

Intel kills off 6 low end CPUs as of April 16, 2013.

Intel, as is tradition, is saying out with the old and in with the new as it ushers in Ivy Bridge, the next generation CPU architecture based upon its 22nm tri-gate transistors. What's interesting this time is that Intel is phasing out low end CPUs while the upcoming launch will be the high end CPUs.

The parts on the chopping block come from the i3, Pentium, and Celeron line of products--not exactly blistering performance stuff. But every product has its place, such as these are useful in low-cost PCs. Intel has advised its partners that it will end shipments of the following processors as of April 16th, 2013:

 

  • Celeron P4600 (2.0 GHz)
  • Core i3-370M (2.4 GHz0
  • Core i3-390M (2.6 GHz)
  • Pentium P6100 (2.0 GHz)
  • Pentium P6200 (2.13 GHz)
  • Pentium P6300 (2.2 GHz)

 

Orders will continue to be accepted with the ability to cancel until October 16, 2012. Past that date, no more cancellations can be made. Intel's justification for killing these low end processors is that a "shift of market demand" has occurred. If you want to grab one of these processors, you best do it within a year.
