The i series is the future for intel at the moment. Strange that they have taken the info off their site though! well my whole plan was around the core 2 quad i almost sweated when i saw the core 2 missing on Intel's website but they haven't made any public announcement that they are stopping core 2 series, may be this what they are planning secretly, its pretty evident, please advise if there is any news of Intel actually stopping the manufacturing and sales of the Core 2 line of CPUs ?

I really can't imagine there being any more 775 chips put into production moody89 a b à CPUs March 13, 2010 11:26:38 AM By this I mean any NEW processors. I'm sure they will continue to manufacture Core2's and places will continue to sell them I just meant they won't be releasing any news ones. Sorry for the confusion!
