Intel has announced it will phase out the Pentium D 830, 840, 930 and 940 processors. December 15 will be the last day that distributors can place orders for these chips.
Tray processors will cease shipping on February 8th, 2008 while boxed processors stop shipping on March 9th, 2007.
Intel’s reasoning for the discontinuing the four Pentium D processors is "Market demand for the Desktop Intel Pentium D processors 930 and 940 has shifted to other Intel processors. The products identified in this notification will be discontinued and unavailable for additional orders after the "Last Product Discontinuance Order Date."
