Intel is preparing to finally say goodbye to its 9th generation CPUs. The processors Intel Core 9th January will not be sold to the public by the end of the first half of 2021 with the end of the last expeditions planned for late next year.
Intel has issued a Product Notification Change in which it outlines its plan for ending sales of 9th Gen CPUs. The Intel Core 9th Gen CPUs will no longer be available for purchase from June 2021 while the latest chip shipments that have reached the end of production are scheduled for December 24 of the same year.
Among the various processors that will no longer be produced, shipped and sold, we find many excellent chips such as the Core i9-9900K and the Core i3, i5 and i7 based on Coffee Lake architecture that users have enjoyed very much so far. Many Pentium and Celeron processors will also reach termination.
The 9th generation Core CPUs are also the basis of many of the hugely successful portable products in 2020, although by now these processors have been replaced in many of the laptops and ultrabooks with the new Tiger Lake chips.

Intel wants people to buy newer and better processors, so at some point it has to stop manufacturing and selling the old chips. The discontinuation of the sale of 9th generation processors by Intel obviously has no effect on the processors already in circulation that will continue to work without any kind of problem.
As for the desktop market, in the first half of 2021, Intel is expected to announce to the world its CPUs based on the Rocket Lake architecture . There is therefore no need to be saddened by the loss of the now old, albeit excellent, family of Coffee Lake processors, already replaced by the recent 10th Gen based on Comet Lake .
