Intel pulls the plug on several LGA 1366 and 1156 CPUs
| by Roydon Cerejo |
With too many SKUs and different generation processors still in the market, Intel is finally doing some spring cleaning (more like winter cleaning) with their CPU line-up as well as some of their older chipsets. Before Ivy Bridge hits the streets next year, the company is clearing their inventory to make way for the new arrivals. CPUs like Core i7-860, Core i7-930, Core i7-950, Core i7-960, Core i7-980 and the Core i7-990X, which are based on the LGA 1366 platform will reach EOL on June 29, 2012. The fate awaits LGA 1156 CPUs like the Core i3-540, i5-650, i5-660, i5-670, i5-680, i7-860, i7-870 as well as the Pentium G6950 and G6960. Tray SKUs, however will still be available till December 7, 2012 or till supplies are depleted.
Out with the old, in with the new

We could have another debacle like Aliens: Colonial Marines on our hands...
Leaked Images, Availability, Pricing,
More cores, more performance, but do we really need it at all?
