According to industry sources in Taiwan, Intel has notified its hardware partners that it will cease production of 25 desktop CPU models in order to pave the way for its upcoming 22nm Ivy Bridge desktop CPUs, which are expected to launch in April 2012.

During the same timeframe, Core i5 661, Core i5 660, Core i3 530, Pentium E5700 and Celeron E3500 production will all be suspended, and production will be terminated in Q2 2012.

Between April and June (Q2 2012), Core i7 960, Core i7 950, Core i7 930, Core i7 870 and Pentium G960 production will all be suspended and terminated.
