    This chart summarizes the discontinuations.  Note that the bulk of these processors are the original Core brand, not the popular Core 2 brand which is dominant today. Intel periodically replaces older CPUs in their arsenal as newer, faster processors are moved into those slots.  This is the primary reason entry-level PCs today have processors around 2.0 GHz and higher.
