Intel products rest in peace

Socket Eight Overdrive, Celeron 333 and a Xeon die quietly

We ought to have spotted this lot earlier but somehow missed them. Intel has discontinued its Socket Eight Overdrive processor (sniff) and its Celeron 333MHz and Pentium II Xeon 400Mhz. The Socket Eight Overdrive was Intel's way of allowing people to upgrade from the late and lamented Pentium Pro to the zippy new Pentium II. The deaths have all occurred over the last four weeks or so. Next of kin have been notified. ®
