CPU World reports that Intel is planning to discontinue five CPUs in 2014. The information was provided with Intel’s latest Product Change Notification (PCN). Of the CPUs that are being axed two are LGA 1155 Core i3 processors and three are socket G2 Core i7 mobile processors.
The Core i3 3210 and Core i3 3225 Ivy Bridge based LGA 1155 processors are the two desktop CPUs to be axed. Both the retail and OEM versions will be discontinued. The Core i7-3720QM, i7-3820QM and i7-3920XM are the trio of mobile Core i7 processors to be axed, this time only the OEM versions as these were never sold as retail version.
