Intel Skylake-X reaches the end of life
Product Change Notification has been issued for the Core-X series based on Skylake-X architecture. The company has announced product discontinuation, meaning that the processors will gradually be phased out. The announcement of the discontinuation is just the first step in a lengthy process.
Starting from January 22, 2021, Intel will no longer take orders for these processors. Orders from distributors and retailers will be non-cancelable and non-returnable after the same date. This does not affect consumers who are protected by applicable laws in their countries. The last shipment of Skylake-X processor is expected a year from now, on July 9, 2021.
The PCN will affect all Skylake-X processors based on LGA2066 socket and Xeon W-2000 series workstation processors based on the same socket.
