Intel decided to phase-out two of its three remaining 32-bit low-voltage processors:
Based on the Yonah 65nm core, the 1.66 GHz and 2 GHz Xeon LV CPUs will be available for orders until December 28 (2007) with last shipment being set to May 2, 2008. The two processors have 2MB of L2 cache, a FSB (front-side bus) of 667 MHz and have a TDP rating of just 31 watts but those low power requirements will not save them as Intel has the newer 64-bit-supporting Woodcrest LVs up its sleeve.

The only Sossaman CPU to survive is the 1.66 GHz model with a TDP of 15 watts.
