The Register meldt dat Intel bovengenoemde processors binnenkort van z'n produktielijnen gaat kieperen:
As reported here earlier, the Pentium III/450 is being phased out and stocks are already drying up. That fact is now confirmed by Intel, in one of its regular missives to its distributors and dealers.
But the Pentium III/450 will not feel lonely when it reaches the wastes of the virtual Intel Siberia. Cold, perhaps, but not lonely.
Five other parts will join it in the lonely trek across the steppes, although the Intel document sent to its channel says that the parts have "limited availability".
The other parts patiently queuing to get off the platform and onto the train are the 550 MHz Xeon (BX805KY550512), the 500 MHz Xeon (BX805KY500512) and the following unfortunate boxed members of the Pentium II family: the400 MHz SECC2; the 400 MHz SECC; and the 350MHz chip.
