Intel plans to phase out Comet Lake processors next year

The tenth generation Intel Core processors, launched in the second quarter of 2020, are already obsolete, so in anticipation of the thirteenth generation of processors (Raptor Lake) on the market, the company decided to clean up the range of desktop solutions at exactly the price of models of the tenth Generation. They can be ordered until April next year, and the last batch will be sent out at the end of October.

From tradition in the company notification the reason for the suspension of deliveries is given – Demand has shifted to other products intel”. The list of eligible models is extensive and includes the Core i9, Core i7 and Core i5 series processors as well as the Xeon W-12xx platform models for entry-level workstations. The younger generation processors such as the Core i3 and Pentium were not included in this list, and some of the Core i9, Core i7, Core i5 and Xeon W models with the letters “E” and “TE” in the designation are carried over to the Embedded -Solutions segment and will therefore be increasingly supplied in a few years.

In general, Intel customers can place an order for delivery of the listed categories of Comet Lake desktop processors until April 28, 2023, and the last batch will be shipped on October 27 of the same year. Boxed and tray versions are subject to the same availability dates. As a rule, the processors of discontinued models can be found on sale and a few years after the delivery has been discontinued.
