Intel Core i7 940 already phased out

Posted on Wednesday, May 06 2009 @ 13:53:15 CEST by

Intel send out a notification that it will start phasing out the 2.93GHz Core i7 940 processor within a couple of months, the chip has to go away to make room for the upcoming 3.06GHz Core i7 950.
On another note, it is interesting that the Core i7 C0 stepping is retiring so early, although this was more for cosmetic purposes rather than performance improvements. Intel states “market demand for the Intel Core i7 940 Processor has shifted to other Intel processors” and advises that tray processors will ship until November 5, 2010, while all retail packaged customers should switch to tray (OEM) orders for long-term support.

The last ship date for boxed processors will be December 4, 2009 while tray orders will be extended all the way until November 5, 2010. This puts shipments of the original Core i7 well into the life of the upcoming 32nm generation, and we are glad to see Intel offering extended support for its first generation LGA 1366 chips.
