Socket 423 officially discontinued

What has actually been known since the end of 2000 and has been announced more and more has now been officially confirmed by Intel: Socket 423 for the Pentium 4 will be discontinued after only one and a half years of service life, as will the Pentium 4 CPUs from 1.5- 2.0 GHz based on Socket 423.

So Intel has now completely changed to the new Socket 478. In addition, Intel is also giving up the production of the old Willamette processor (Pentium 4) with 2GHz in 0.18µm technology and here also changes completely to 0.13µm technology, so that the old Willamette with 2GHz is replaced by the new Northwood with 2GHz. Intel has not yet announced the exact dates for the last order options and delivery dates, but this will certainly be done in the next few days.
