The end is near for Intel's Kaby Lake (7th Gen Core) processor series. AnandTech writes Intel send out a notice to its partners that these 14nm chips will be discontinued next year:
Introduced early in 2017, Intel’s desktop 7th Generation Core processors (Kaby Lake) have been around for nearly three years now. The CPUs certainly served their purpose, but it is time for them to go and Intel recommends its partners to place their final orders on these products by April 24, 2020. The final shipments will be made by October 9, 2020. Some of Intel’s Kaby Lake and Skylake products will be moved to Internet of Things (IoT) status and will be available for a little longer to IoT customers and probably some PC makers as there are still previous-generation motherboards on the market that need to be sold.
All remaining desktop Skylake processors (6th Gen Core) will also cease shipping by October 9, 2020.
