In January 2007, Intel will cut prices on processors including the 651 (3.4GHz/2MB L2/800MHz FSB), 641 (3.2GHz/2MB L2/800MHz FSB), 631 (3GHz/2MB L2/800MHz FSB), 541 (3.2GHz/1MB L2/800MHz FSB) and 531 (3GHz/1MB L2/800MHz FSB) by up to 58%, in an attempt to clear inventory prior to the Conroe-L launch, according to motherboard makers.

In addition, Intel intends to clear inventory of 915 chipsets by bundling the series with its Pentium 4 processors, indicated the sources. As the 915 chipsets are designed not to support the dual-core platform, clearing inventory has become increasingly harder, the makers commented.

According to Intel's product roadmap, Pentium 4 processors based on its Netburst architecture are also set to be phased out by the third quarter of 2007, the makers revealed. A complete entry-level CPU line under the new Core microarchitecture will be available from the second quarter of 2007, according to the makers.

Intel is also scheduling to launch its Pentium E1000 CPU family in the second quarter of 2007 and the Celeron 400 series in the third quarter, whereas the Celeron D 300 line under the Netburst core will be gone by the end of next year, said the makers. A complete migration from the Neburst architecture to the new Core microarchitecture will take place before 2008, the makers added.

Funny that this won't happen till after the Christmas season is over, hehe. Are people even buying 915 chipset MB's? I havent bought one that old for months now. Everyone wants the 945 chipset Mb's lately. Maybe some real cheap computers can be built out of these. Hmmm, a intel 3.0 computer for $200-250, why not. Sure ain't that much slower than the newer ones.
