Intel will discontinue its 8th-gen Coffee Lake CPU line-up this year

Intel will discontinue its 8th-gen Coffee Lake CPU line-up this year 1
In brief: The end of an era is approaching for the CPU market. Intel is reportedly planning to discontinue its entire line of 8th-gen Coffee Lake CPUs this year, which means an end to the distribution of dozens of popular processors.

The discontinuation notices went out yesterday, but the actual end-of-life date for all affected products won’t come until mid-December. Beyond that point, distributors will no longer be able to place orders for new 8th-gen parts. The range of discontinued products includes everything from the Intel Celeron G4900 to the enthusiast-grade i7 8700K.

While there could be any number of reasons that Intel has chosen now to begin discontinuing these processors, their age is likely the most prominent reason. 9th-gen Intel CPUs have been around for quite some time now, and the company has already begun to ship out select 10th-gen products, such as the i9-10900K, to early adopters and reviewers.

If you don’t have the inclination to snag some of these newer chips, don’t fret about this news too much. As we said, retailers have until December to order 8th-gen CPUs, and it will likely be quite some time before those stocks are fully depleted. Further, as Tech Radar points out, we might see some 9th-gen chips get price reductions in the near future, as Intel streamlines its manufacturing processes and drops aging products from its catalog.

Tom’s Hardware has helpfully compiled a full list of soon-to-be-discontinued products, which you can see below:

As the outlet points out, some duplicates are to be expected, since Intel differentiates between “boxed and tray chips” (chips designed for solo builders and OEMs, respectively).

If you’re in the market for a new CPU following this news, now might be the time to take a gander at our reviews for the i9-10900K and the i7-10700K. If the Red Team is more your speed, we were impressed with how well AMD’s Ryzen 7 3700X stacks up against some of Intel’s latest silicon across both gaming and productivity use cases.
