Today is one of those days when Intel notifies its customers, and anyone else that bothers looking at product change notifications, that some products are near the end of their lives.
There are two central processing units that Intel has decided to stop manufacturing.
One of them is the Atom Z670, a single-core chip with two threads and a clock speed of 1.5 GHz. It dates back to 2011.
The other is Core i5-3450S, a quad-core without Hyper-Threading (so just 4 threads) and a clock frequency of 1.5 GHz. It was launched in the second quarter of 2012.
The former processor will be up for order until May 31, 2013 and will ship while supplies last. The latter will be gone on May 24 and will ship until November 8 of the same year.
