The original Celeron processor is dead, Intel confirmed today, along with three Pentium II models.
The Celeron, launched in spring this year to great fanfare, won disappointing OEM support and way to improved revisions with a faster core, known as Mendecino, this autumn.
Intel has also decided to discontinue the PII/233, the PII/266 and the PII/300. It will continue to supply the processors to those with existing orders until November 1999, a representative said.
The move means that Intel will now concentrate on pushing its higher clocked PIIs, with the Pentium II/333 now the entry level chip.
Distributors reported some weeks ago that there was a shortage of PII/266 and PII/300 parts. There are unlikely to be any changes on PII prices until early January, however.
