Intel Corp. has announced that it plans to discontinue several Intel Pentium D processors due to market demand shifting to other processors by the chip giant. The announcement emphasizes Intel’s intention to reduce the number of NetBurst micro-architecture based processors in the lineup.

Intel has begun discontinuance program for dual-core Intel Pentium D processors models 830 (3.0GHz, 2MB L2 cache [1MB level-two cache per core]), 840 (3.0GHz, 2MB L2 cache [1MB level-two cache per core]), 930 (3.0GHz, 2MB L2 cache [1MB level-two cache per core]) and 940 (3.0GHz, 2MB L2 cache [1MB level-two cache per core]). The microprocessors are not especially affordable or offer competitive price-performance ratio, therefore, no customers are likely to regret about their disappearance.

The last date Intel’s clients may order the chips is the 15th of December, 2006. The last shipment dates for the aforementioned processors are February 8, 2008 and March 9, 2007 for tray and boxed processors respectively.

Shrinking of the Pentium D family will allow Intel to more clearly position microprocessors from both Pentium D and Core 2 families within the product range the company offers right now.
