Intel Phasing Out Xeon 5000 Series

Intel plans to announce the phase out date for its Xeon 5000 series (Dempsey) 2-way server processors in July, while its Xeon 7000 (Paxville MP) series 4-way server processors is scheduled to be phased out by August of this year. With the low acceptance of Dempsey and Paxville MP processors in the server market, the phase-out plan will assist Intel in simplifying its product lines and will benefit server vendors and ODMs. Intel is currently pushing its Xeon 7100 series processors (Tulsa) in the 4-way server market, while pushing its Xeon 5100 (Woodcrest) and Xeon 5300 (Clovertown) series processors in the 2-way server market and its Xeon 3000 (Conroe) and Xeon 3200 (Kentsfield) series processors in the 1-way server market.Source: DigiTimes

Dempsey was a piece of crap yes. The only reason to buy them was that they're dirt cheap. However the motherboards weren't cheap so Woodcrest is a far superior alternative. Paxville is even worse, and with the launch of Clovertown it became quite obsolete. Time for Tigerton I'd say.

Quite a while, they're still Netburst procs. 1.5-2 years or so.
