Intel “Avengers Edition” 10th Gen Core Desktop Processors Reach End of Life (EOL)
Intel now commenced the method of discontinuation of the “Avengers Version” SKUs of its tenth Generation Core “Comet Lake-S” desktop processors, by way of a solution adjust notification (PCN). The reported PCN #117894-00 mentions December 16, 2020 as a popular date for all four crucial discontinuation milestones in the product’s lifecycle, specifically Product Discontinuation Guidance graduation, Last Products Discontinuance Purchase (the final opportunity for distributors to put orders from Intel for), the date for these orders to come to be non-cancelable and non-returnable and the date for the last purchase to ship. Commonly, the latter two milestones are spaced 6 months and twelve months aside from the date of the products discontinuation PCN. To place this in less difficult terms—and until the PCN won’t have a typo with its dates—Intel is expeditiously discontinuing its tenth Gen Core “Comet Lake-S” desktop processors, marking them EOL (close of lifestyle).
