Intel cans 3.2GHz P4 Extreme Edition

Scheduled for termination

So farewell, then, Pentium 4 Extreme Edition 3.2GHz. Intel has deemed you are surplus to requirements. You will no longer be available come 19 November 2004.

After that date, the chip giant will no longer accept orders for the part, though it will ultimately ship the part through to 29 July 2005 in trays and boxed parts until 18 February 2005.

The move marks the latest elimination of a Socket 478 part from Intel's P4 line-up, as the company shifts to the 775-pin Socket T. It's also the latest 130nm part to get the chop.

Intel currently has one other Socket 478 P4EE: the 3.4GHz model. There's a 3.4GHz Socket T part too, so the former chip can't be long for this world either. ®
