Ryan Martin / 3 years ago
Last month Intel made it known that it was to be discontinuing and retiring a whole stack of Ivy Bridge CPUs. The following CPUs are to have their shipments stopped after June 5th 2015, with the last order date being December 24th 2014: the Core i5-3330, i5-3330S, i5-3340, i5-3340S, i5-3470, i5-3475S, i5-3470S, i5-3470T, i5-3550, i5-3570, i5-3570S, i5-3570T, i5-3570K, i7-3770, i7-3770K, i7-3770S and i7-3770T. Now to go alongside that retirement of many Ivy Bridge CPUs Intel will also be discontinuing the bulk of its 7 Series chipsets that support Ivy Bridge CPUs. Z77, H77, Z75 and Q75 chipsets will continue to ship until July 10th 2015 while the last orders will be taken on January 23rd 2015. That means H71 is the only remaining 7 Series chipset to survive after this latest batch of retirements. Intel also announced that it would be retiring a range of mobile Ivy Bridge processors with the same schedule as the aforementioned chipsets. The Celeron 1020M, 1005M, 1000M, 1037U, 1017U, 1007U and 1019Y are all facing the chop.
