It doesn’t seem all that long ago that Intel launched the first of its Core i-series processors or its first Atom chips aimed at netbooks and nettops.

However, it appears all good things must come to an end as the company begins to issue end-of-life and product discontinuance notices for a range of popular processors according to a news report on Digitimes.com.

First on the chopping block with EOL (end of life) notices being issues are Core i7 920 processor, the initial launch CPU of Intel’s LGA1366 platform. The Core 2 Quad Q8200/8200S and Pentium E5200 processors for its LGA775 platform will now be discontinued as well.

Due to get the chop this quarter are the quad-core Core 2 Quad Q9300 and budget dual-core Pentium E6300 processors. These will be followed by  the entry-level dual-core LGA775-based Celeron E3200 processor reaching EOL by October with the quad-core Core 2 Quad Q8300 and dual-core Pentium E5400 processor due to go EOL during the first quarter of 2011.
