Strangely enough about six months after the launch of the Ivy Bridge CPU family chip giant Intel has decided to get rid of one Ivy Bridge-based processor.

The chip that will be retired soon is the quad-core Core i5-3450S, launched back in April. It operates at 2.8 GHz nominal clock speed and 3.5 GHz clock speed in Turbo mode. Customers can order the Core i5-3450S until May 24, 2013. Tray versions of the same chip will be shipped until November 8, 2013 while boxed versions of the same chip will ship until they are in stock.

The second chip that gets the boot is the Intel Atom Z670 – it offers one core and runs a 1.5 GHz. This one can be ordered until May 31, 2013 and will be sold until all manufactured Atom Z670 CPUs get exhausted.
