So farewell, 2.4GHz and 2.6GHz Northwood Pentium 4. Goodbye, 2.2GHz, 2.4GHz, 2.5GHz, 2.6GHz 2.8GHz, 3.06GHz and 3.2GHz Mobile Pentium 4. Cheerio, 1GHz Ultra-low Voltage Pentium M. Ta-ta, 2.2GHz, 2.4GHz and 2.5GHz Mobile Celeron. Clear off 1.2GHz Celeron M.
You have all been given notice by Intel that you will be discontinued. From 19 November, system builders and PC OEMs will no longer be able to order you.
In essence, Intel is culling its 130nm CPUs as it continues to improve its 90nm process and products. Of course, all the listed chips will be around for some time. While the order cut-off takes place in November, Intel expects to continued shipping boxed product until 18 February 2005 and tray-mounted batches until 20 January 2006 - or 15 July 2005 in the case of the Celeron-branded parts. ®
