Farewell Pentium D 830, 840, 930 and 940

DailyTech has received a new Intel product change notification that marks the demise of four Intel Pentium D processors. December 15th, 2006 will be the last day distributors will be able to place orders on Pentium D 830, 840, 930 and 940 processors. Tray processors will cease shipping on February 8th, 2008 while boxed processors stop shipping on March 9th, 2007.

Intel’s reasoning for the discontinuing the four Pentium D processors is "Market demand for the Desktop Intel Pentium D processors 930 and 940 has shifted to other Intel processors. The products identified in this notification will be discontinued and unavailable for additional orders after the "Last Product Discontinuance Order Date."

Chinese hardware site HKEPC (English) has also picked up on the EOL notifications, claiming there will be promotional incentives for merchants to clean out inventory of these processors. 

Intel has also been drastically cutting prices on its Pentium D 925, 915, 820 and 805 processors in a bid to stay competitive with AMD’s price cuts. Intel also recently launched Core 2 Duo Conroe processors and is expected to release a single processor Xeon variant.

Can we have some BOL dates for the E6600 and E6700 Conroes? =D

But it is good that Intel is trimming down their product line, I don't think many people are going to be wanting Pentium D's anymore ...

I am seeing 6600 in stock this morning are various etailers? Just because Newegg is sold out doesn't mean it isn't available.

Simple supply and demand! High demand and low supply.

But you have to give them a break, its less than a month old.. by EOL on Pentium D's - they should be great supply.

Its a new era with end of Netburst.

dates correct?

December 15th, 2006.. February 8th, 2008

Is that second date correct? Or should be 2007?

2008 is correct. You'll see those chips in OEM systems for some time still.

price drop

can we expect a price drop on C2D's to fill the gap created by these EOL p4d's?

or is it that the e4xxx series are filling that price gap? will they be introduced at that time?

I'd expect an Intel price drop the next time AMD reports a profit.

Have they been EOL'ed already? Theres not many of them on sale here in briton, pentium D's seem to have largely replaced them.
