Intel plans to discontinue 28 desktop microprocessors

No MAS!

Intel this week announced plans to retire 28 Sandy Bridge desktop CPUs from Celeron, Pentium, Core i3 and Core i5 families. After successful transition of budget desktop microprocessors from Sandy Bridge to Ivy Bridge microarchitecture, it's not surprising to see all phased out parts to be end of lifed. According to several Product Change Notification (PCN) documents, Intel is going to retire the following SKUs:

Celeron G460, G465, G530, G530T, G540, G540T, G550, G550T and G555

Pentium G620, G622, G630, G630T, G640, G640T, G645, G645T, G850, G860, G860T and G870

Core i3-2100, i3-2102, i3-2120, i3-2120T, i3-2125 and i3-2130

Core i5-2390T

Second-generation Core i3 CPUs were introduced in February 2011, while Pentium and Celerons became available in May and September of the same year. The latest Sandy Bridge models from these families were launched last September.
