Intel has officially confirmed it will discontinue the 300-series motherboard chipsets

Intel has announced that the 300 chipset series will no longer be shipped starting from January 28 next year. The products based on 300 series, including Z390, Z370, H370, B360, H310, B365, H310D, and mobile QMS380 motherboards have officially entered the discontinuation period starting from yesterday.

Intel has already discontinued the 9th Gen Core series a month ago, which were based on the LGA1151 socket. The discontinuation of the 300 series motherboards effectively means that no more CPUs based on this socket will appear in the future.

The manufacturer is set to announce its 500 series motherboards next week at CES 2021. The new motherboards will support the 10th Gen Core Comet Lake-S series as well as the 11th Gen Core Rocket Lake-S chips, although only the latter will benefit from the PCIe Gen4 interface standard.
