Time is running out for Skylake-X, as Intel has published a product change notification advising that its 9th Gen Core X-series HEDT processors have entered the discontinuation process. While these chips are technically EOL (product discontinuation program support has already begun), prospective owners can still order them before January 22, 2021, with final shipments slated for July 9, 2021.

Of course, none of this is really surprising, since their successors – Intel’s 10th Gen Cascade Lake-X chips – have been on shelves since late last year. Here’s a list of which SKUs are affected.
