Farewell Pentium D 830, 840, 930 and 940
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."

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.
