Intel Culls Twelve Core, Celeron "Sandy Bridge" Processor Models

Intel's spring cleaning began early, with the company discontinuing twelve processor models spanning across the Core and Celeron lines, based on the 32 nm "Sandy Bridge" silicon. The company issued a PDN (product discontinuation notice) to that effect. A majority of these are mobile parts, whose market lifetime is stretched to keep up with OEM orders. Among the chips are the Core i7-2960XM, i7-2860QM, i5-2557M, i7-2637M, and Celeron B710, and 857. According to the PDN, Intel will stop accepting orders for the chips from July 11, 2013, and the last orders will have shipped out by January 14, 2014.

No 12-core Celerons... :(
Would be nice to get a 1.6GHz 12-core and then clock it at 3.2GHz.
Anyways, I like the 857's S-Spec. :roll:

What you may not realize is that the sandy and ivy bridge celerons are quite powerful, Even a single core celeron matched performance of a AM3 dual cores in gaming for like 30$!

Very wrong. As someone else above said, they are pretty decent actually, and twelve of them on one die... That would be quite excellent. And because it's "Celeron" they would probably be pretty cheap too.
