Intel has issued a notice to its hardware, distribution and retail partners with plans to discontinue the eighth generation Core “Coffee Lake” before the end of 2020. The actual completion of the platform will take place in December and will no longer support thereafter. orders from this platform.

As you know, the number of Intel processors it’s monumental, differentiated by product number, brands, series, architectures, generations, technological processes, platforms, market segment, focus, characteristics and SKUs.

The launch of the tenth generation and on two different platforms, Comet Lake and Ice Lake, has increased the number of models available. Beyond them and given the delay in the transition to 10 nanometers it is causing platforms to accumulate and very soon we will have others, such as the Tiger Lake, the Rocket Lake-S for desktop or the Jasper Lake, the new platform for the range input on PCs.

The need to “clean” the catalog is clear And this is what this discontinuation is aimed at, which will reach all the models of the eighth generation Core, both those delivered to OEM manufacturers and those sold by retailers in retail and specifically:

The notice of this discontinuation may cause a price’s drop of the models that are on the market. The arrival of the new tenth and eleventh generation platforms should also lower the price of the ninth generation.
