Intel Discontinues Xeon 5500 "Tylersburg" Platform

After last week's launch of the Xeon "Romley" platform, which replaces the Xeon 5500 "Tylersburg" platform, Intel has a retirement plan ready for the latter. Tylersburg was introduced in 2009, based on Intel's Nehalem architecture. Intel introduced product change notification (PCN) documents that detail these plans. The following models will be discontinued:
  • High-end: W5590, W5580, X5570, X5560 and X5550
  • Mid-tier versions: E5540, E5530, E5520, E5507, E5506, E5504, E5503 and E5502
  • Entry-level versions: L5530, L5520 and L5506
September 28, 2012 is set as the last date of orders for these chips. After this date, Intel will work to clear the last orders, and the products will attain end-of-life (EOL) status. Small stocks will still be held to honor any warranty claims.Source: CPU World
