Intel informed its partners that it will be discontinuing seven mobile Core processors, in addition to five Celeron chips.
With the elimination of the Core i5-2537M and i5-2557M, Intel is canceling all of its available i5 ULV CPUs. The i7-2637M, i7-2677M, i7-2760QM, i7-2860QM and it-2960XM follow suit and cut down the available mobile Sandy Bridge processors to just four models, the i7-2640M, i7-2620M, i5-2540M, and i5-2520M, if our records are right. We would expect these models to receive discontinuance announcements in the near future as well.
According to an Intel product change notification, the affected processors will remain available for order until July 11, 2013. The last shipment is dated for January 14, 2014.
Also included in the product cuts are Sandy Bridge-based mobile Celerons: The models 787, 797, 867, 867 and B710 can be ordered until July 11, 2013 and will ship January 2014.
