Intel has published a new Product Change Notification (PCN) document confirming that its 300 Series chipsets have entered the discontinuation/EOL phase. What this means is that we can say goodbye to the Z370, H310, B360, B365, H370, and Z390 desktop platforms, which were introduced as part of the original Coffee Lake (LGA 1151) generation back in 2017 and 2018. Intel’s mobile QMS380 chipset is also getting the axe.
“Market demand for the products listed in the ‘Products Affected/Intel Ordering Codes’ table below have shifted to other Intel products,” a description reads. “The products identified in this notification will be discontinued and unavailable for additional orders after the ‘Last Product Discontinuance Order Date.'”
The discontinuation of Intel’s 300 Series chipsets isn’t all that surprising, as the company began distancing itself from their respective processors—the 9th Gen Core (Coffee Lake Refresh) Series—just last month. Intel will reportedly unveil its 500 Series chipsets during next week’s all-virtual CES 2021 conference.
