Intel Announces Discontinuation of 9th Generation Processors

Intel has announced the dates from which we will not be able to purchase the 9th-Gen Core-X series processors. The information comes through Intel’s PCN (product change notification), and it covers all 9th-Gen Core-X chips including the big Core i9-9980XE. These include the boxed and tray versions of the i7-9800X, i9-9820X, i9-9900X, i9-9920X, i9-9940X, i9-9960X, i9-9980XE, and the Xeon W-2102, W-2104, W-2123, W-2125, W-2133, W-2135, W-2145, W-2155, W-2195 chips. This discontinuation is not a surprise, as Intel has already had its 10th Generation Cascade Lake X chips on the market for some time. The discontinuation will take place over the course of about a year. Customers and clients will be able to place their last orders until January 22nd, 2021. The last 9th-Gen Core-X series CPUs have to be shipped out by July 9th, 2021 at the latest. This is good news for prices as these chips will be quite cheap over the next year as all inventory gets cleared.
