Intel retires its first 11th Gen Core CPU

According to Intel’s Quality Document Management System (QDMS), the manufacturer is retiring three series of its consumer’s products.

As reported by ComputerBase, Intel is now retiring as many as three low-power product series. The discontinuance program has been announced for Intel’s 10th Gen Core Comet Lake-U series, as well as the 10th Gen Core Ice Lake-U and Lakefield series.

The SKU list shared by Intel confirms that the last shipment of these SKUs commence in April 2022, however, official the product discontinuance starts today.

Probably the most surprising product to leave the official lineup is Lakefield, Intel’s first series to support Hybrid Technology. Only two SKUs were ever released and two products based on these series have made it to the market. Technically this means that Intel will no longer have products supporting hybrid architecture till the Alder Lake series arrive.

Intel is also retiring its Ice Lake-U and Comet Lake-U CPU series, both still very popular in the budget low-power laptop series. Intel has already introduced its successor, the 11th Gen Core Tiger Lake-U series.
