Intel Prepares to Phase Out Thirty One 65nm Server Xeon Processors

Intel informed today that it will be phasing out a large number of server Xeon processors during the next eight months. That's mainly because of the forthcoing Nehalem platform and the new Core i7 processors. Intel also said that it is already producing more 45nm processors than 65nm chips, so it's time for some of the 65nm parts to drop off the charts. The list includes six dual-core Xeon processors with Woodcrest core, these are the 1.86GHz Xeon 5120, 2.66GHz 5150, 2.33GHz LV 5148, 1.60GHz 5110, 2.0GHz 5130, 2.33GHz 5140 and 3.0GHz 5160. The list continues with nine quad-core models with Clovertown core, the 1.86GHz E5320, 1.86GHz L5320, 3.0GHz X5365, 2.66GHz X5355, 1.60GHz E5310, 2.33GHz E5345, 2.0GHz E5335 and 2.0GHz L5335. Sales of different variations of these CPUs are also going to be phased out. The total count is 31 server models, that won't be produced anymore. Final customer orders for these processors can be submitted until April 23, 2009. Intel plans the final shipment of these processors for July 23, 2009.Source: TG Daily

Well, good for Intel. Realizing the shift in the market. Just hopefully they actually see their projected end, unlike XP :shadedshu

Except ALOT of people still use XP. Microsoft are just being nice enough to keep extending support for it.

so they should with the money they have!

has anyone heard of the new Foundry AMD are trying to make, but intel really don't like it, intel themselfs say it threaten's them in the battle for the CPU market, but with the sounds of it, Intel should be very worried if AMD get the go ahead, and should be into action sometime around the first quarter next year, so high hopes for AMD again :D

Which is dumb because they want to pitch Vista and Windows 7 is supposed to be released next year. :shadedshu

Most computers in use today were purchased before Vista came out.


It's sad to see my own processors phased out but, "that's the way the cookie crumbles."
