Intel Discontinues 9th Gen Core X Series "Skylake-X" HEDT Processors

Intel issued a product change notification (PCH) announcing the discontinuation of its 9th Gen Core X series "Skylake-X" HEDT processors in the LGA2066 package; in addition to at least 10 Xeon W-2000 series workstation processors that are based on a similar IP. Discontinuation involves several steps, the first of which is the discontinuation announcement, which is dated July 9, 2020. The last orders for these chips will be taken on January 22, 2021, which are non-cancellable and non-returnable (for distributors, end-users are still protected by product warranties and consumer laws regardless of when they buy the processor). The last orders ship before July 9, 2021.

These have been out since late 2018. They had a decent run.

These chips deserved better than to be vomited out by Intel executives who got caught with their pants down

It's too bad you can't find any of them at a decent price like what Intel told us.

We still have 10th gen, which is basically the same. Sadly no 9990XE equivalent :(

If someone is interested, caseking should still have on of these :D

These had one good purpose after the price slash - HEDT features and PCIe lanes, that's a good thing in my book. By sadly these are not at all like those Haswell E 5960X which still can play games well, these are too power hungry due to that Mesh even for OCers. Plus X299 CPUs and Mobos have full Win7 support, they will make a great machine for Dual boot to play old titles without any hassle for virtually forever until their machine lasts.

Hi,
Yeah Intel left out the fact this 10980xe price slashed HEDT chip was a limited supply release
Even 10900k/ KFC is looking pretty much the same.
