Intel Corp. has announced to clients that its lower-end Pentium D 920 processor will be discontinued and unavailable for additional orders. The chip giant explained, like it does similarly in such cases, that the market demand had shifted to “higher performance Intel processors”.

Intel Pentium D 920 is the lower-end speed-bin of the Pentium D 900-sequence that works at 2.80GHz, has 4MB of cache in total (2MB per core), supports 800MHz processor system bus and does not sport any power consumption reduction mechanisms. The Pentium D 920 is based on the code-named Presler design that features two separate processing engines produced using 65nm process technology on a single piece of substrate.

Intel said it would not update the Pentium D 920 with any new features or perform any other significant silicon-related changes. The last date when customers may order the Pentium D 920 is the 30th of June, 2006. Intel may ship boxed flavours of the chip by September 29, 2006, and tray versions of the chip by August 28, 2007, according to a document for clients.

Intel’s unwillingness to update the processor with power saving technologies and announcement regarding end-of-life for the product means that the company will have higher-performance processors in its lineup and will be able to serve market segment served by the Pentium D 920 with better chips, which makes the D 920 a product that is unlikely to be in high demand.

Well, I think this is kind of retarded, since low-end dual-cores like the 805 and 920 are the only area in which Intel has an edge over AMD.
