Hexus report Intel has decided to reverse its decision to discontinue the 22nm Haswell-based Pentium G3420. Overall, the product change notification (PCN) from Intel doesn't really provide a detailed reason why this chip will continue to be shipped. It was originally launched in Q3 2013.
The 22nm Intel Pentium G3420 was given a public EOL notice on 26th Nov, again via PCN. The new PCN, issued on 5th Dec 2019, reverses the decision to axe this ageing LGA1150 socket 2C/2T CPU for the following reason: "Cancelling this Product Discontinuance completely per new roadmap decision and enabling the product long term once again."
