DigiTimes wrote this week that Intel will continue to sell its E2410 CPUs to remain competitive against AMD's offerings in emerging markets:
Intel was originally planning to launch the E2180 on August 26 with a price of US$84 in 1000-unit tray quantities while dropping the price of the E2160 from US$84 to US$74. Following the moves, the E2140 would be phased out of the market, according to previous reports.

The E2140 processor's current price is US$74. On July 22, the price will drop to US$71 and will go down to US$64 on August 26, added the sources.

The reason Intel has decided to keep E2140 in the market is to defend against AMD's Athlon 64 X2 3800+ and 3600+ processors taking market share in emerging markets, the sources commented.
