Intel Gives 910 And 915 Chipsets One Year To Live
In addition to pushing the 945-series as the mainstream chipset solutions for entry-level PC systems in the first half of 2007, Intel has decided not to accept orders for 910- and 915-series chipsets starting from March of next year, according to sources at Taiwan motherboard makers.
However, the motherboard makers commented that with dual-core Pentium D 805 CPUs (2.66GHz, 1MB L2x2 cache memory and 533MHz FSB) priced below US$100 (in lots of one thousand), inventory levels of 910- and 915-series chipsets are already hard to clear.
Perhaps understanding this, Intel has informed motherboard makers that orders for 910- and 915-series chipsets could not be canceled after December 11, 2006, though order placement would be suspended in March 2007, the sources explained.
In order to strengthen dual-core CPU support in the entry-level segment, Intel will introduce the 945GC chipset for the Core 2 Duo E4000 and Pentium E1000 CPU families in the first half of 2007, the sources pointed out.
The last delivery date of the chipsets will be October 12, 2007. Intel also plans to stop accepting orders for 955-series chipsets on March 13, 2007 with the last delivery also set for October 12, the sources noted.
In related news, information released from motherboard makers show that Intel will soon suspend production of 910GL LF, 910GE LF, 915G LF, 915GL LF, 915P LF, 915PL LF, 910GE, 915G, 915GL, 915FV, 915P and 915PL chipsets, but there was no mention of a production suspension of embedded 915GV LF chipsets.
