Chip giant Intel has now confirmed that its i740 chipset will become a thing of the past in August. The information is on its website. Intel said it will stop supporting the i740 in August. And Intel has also confirmed that it has canned its high end i754 chipset. (See Intel has (late) designs on your graphics) Intel said it has dropped the i754 because the i752, targeting mainstream graphics, will "meet the targets" it originally set for the i754. The i740 was launched around 15 months ago and sparked a row when Intel slashed its price only a few months after releasing it. The news that the i740 will shortly move into the Intel gulag, means that the i810 is likely to disappear in the next three or four months. Intel says that's unlikely... It will be displaced by the 810e, still scheduled for September, according to sources. The 810e was, originally, dubbed the i815. ®
