Default Intel to speed up introduction of 1333MHz CPUs, ditching 1066

I'm not sure whether to buy this or not, but Intel hasn't failed to impress lately so it wouldn't surprise me. I stuck in a table of the release schedule at bottom.

In order to grow penetration of 1333MHz front-side bus (FSB) CPUs and boost Intel 3-series desktop chipset (Bearlake) sales, Intel plans to suspend production of five 1066MHz Core 2 Duo CPUs by late 2007, according to sources at motherboard makers.
Intel will suspend landing orders for five 1066MHz FSB CPUs, including E6600, E6700, E6300, E6320 and E6420, by late 2007. Final delivery schedule is set as the first quarter of 2008, the sources detailed.
Since the previous 965-chipset motherboards cannot support CPUs that run at 1333MHz, and Intel is about to introduce its latest Core 2 Duo E6050 family on July 22 along with the introduction of more 3-series chipsets, Intel will thus speed up the transition to higher FSB frequency CPUs, the sources explained.
The upcoming E6050 family includes E6550, E6750 and E6850 with core frequencies ranging from 2.33GHz, 2.66GHz and 3GHz. Pricing per thousand is US$163, US$183 and US$266 respectively about 40% lower than the current 1066MHz CPU lineup.
On a separate note, Intel plans to boost its 3-series chipset shipment proportions to 38% in the third quarter, up from about 15% in the second quarter.

It sucks, but at least most 1066FSB motherboards will handle 1333FSB without any voltage boosts. Even still though...

I'll hold my beef until we see the actual OC potential of the new chips, but I've got a sneaking suspicion that this will mark the slow return of Intel to higher Price/Performance ratios.........

they already have a huge price to performance ratio. none of us here should be running stock...

What I'm afraid of is that they'll start selling us chips clocked higher stock which will top out the same as the (cheaper) lower stock setting chips they're phasing out.
