Intel announces Celeron D cull

More 90nm CPUs for the chop

Intel is to oust its Celeron D 326, 346, 351 and 355 processors, the company has told its customers. Orders for the products become unchangeable on 2 February 2007, and no further orders will be accepted after 6 April 2007, Intel documents reveal.

News of the chip giant's plan to EOL the budget CPUs comes a day after it emerged the company was also planning to cull the Pentium D 820, like the listed Celeron Ds a 90nm part. With similar plans to cut other Celeron D and Pentium D - the former single-core parts, the latter dual-cores, despite both sharing the 'D' - laid out last August, Intel is busily pruning its Pentium and Celeron line-ups to make way for the increasing mainstream-oriented Core 2 Duo family and for future Core-based Pentium processors. ®
