Intel EOLs 533MHz FSB Xeon CPUs

Goodbyeee

Intel has formally announced the demise of the 533MHz frontside bus-supporting Xeon processor, company documents seen by The Register reveal.

With the Xeon DP line now already running an 800MHz frontside bus, marking the 533MHz version's cards comes as no surprise perhaps, but the decision to end-of-life the products is now official.

Out go Xeon DPs clocked at 2.4GHz up to 3.2GHz, all with 1MB of L2 cache, along with a 3.2GHz version with 2MB of cache. The EOL notice affects both boxed and tray-mounted processors.

Orders for any of these chips taken after 25 November can't be cancelled, Intel said, and it will take no further orders for the products on 24 February 2006. The chip maker expects to ship the last of the boxed processors by 27 May 2006. The last tray-packed product will go out before 29 August 2008, so it's not like the parts are going to vanish overnight. ®
