Intel’s Quality Documents Management System (QDMS) shared that Intel will discontinue three product series from its consumer product list.
Volker Risska from ComputerBase reports that Intel will discontinue three low-power product series which include: 10th Gen Core Comet Lake-U series, 10th Gen Core Ice Lake-U, and Lakefield series.
The reason behind this decision is to make faster and efficient CPUs available to those who are looking to buy their first PC.Intel’s SKU list confirms that the last shipment will start in April 2022 but the official product discontinuance is in effect from today.
The Lakefield is most probably the most interesting SKU to exit the official lineup since it was Intel’s first series to support Hybrid Technology. Only Two SKUs were released under the series and two products arrived in the markets. This means that Intel will have no hybrid architecture-based products until the arrival of the Alder Lake series.
The other two retiring series: Ice Lake-U and Comet Lake-U CPU are still preferred for the budget low-power laptop series. However, we have its successor, the 11th Gen Core Tiger Lake-U series.
