The lists add up to all the 8th-Gen Coffee Lake-S chips

Intel outed a handful of Product Change Notifications (PCN), each detailing a series of Coffee Lake-S processors set to be discontinued. The lists add up to all the 8th-Gen Coffee Lake-S chips spanning from the Celerons up to the once-almighty Core i7-8700K, Xeons not included. The full list below:

  • Intel® Celeron® G4900 Processor
  • Intel® Celeron® Processor G4900T
  • Boxed Intel® Celeron® Processor G4900 
  • Boxed Intel® Celeron® Processor G4920 
  • Boxed Intel® Core™ i3-8100 Processor

  • Boxed Intel® Core™ i7-8700K Processor 
  • Boxed Intel® Pentium® Gold G5400 Processor
  • Intel® Pentium® Gold G5400 Processor
  • Intel® Pentium® Gold G5400T Processor
  • Intel® Pentium® Gold G5500 Processor 
  • Intel® Pentium® Gold G5500T Processor
  • Intel® Pentium® Gold G5600 Processor 
  • Intel® Pentium® Gold G5600F Processor 
  • Intel® Pentium® Gold G5600T Processor 
  • Boxed Intel® Pentium® Gold G5500 Processor
  • Boxed Intel® Pentium® Gold G5600 Processor
  • Boxed Intel® Pentium® Gold G5600F Processor 
  • Intel® Celeron® Processor G4920 
  • Intel® Core™ i3-8100 Processor
  • Intel® Core™ i3-8100B Processor 
  • Intel® Core™ i3-8100T Processor
  • Intel® Core™ i3-8300 Processor 
  • Intel® Core™ i3-8300T Processor 
  • Intel® Core™ i3-8350K Processor 
  • Intel® Core™ i5-8400 Processor 
  • Intel® Core™ i5-8400T Processor 
  • Intel® Core™ i5-8500 Processor
  • Intel® Core™ i5-8500B Processor 
  • Intel® Core™ i5-8500T Processor
  • Intel® Core™ i5-8600 Processor 
  • Intel® Core™ i5-8600K Processor 
  • Intel® Core™ i5-8600T Processor 
  • Intel® Core™ i7-8700 Processor
  • Intel® Core™ i7-8700T Processor
  • Intel® Core™ i7-8700B Processor 
  • Intel® Core™ i7-8700K Processor 

You might see some SKU's above appear to be mentioned twice. That's because of the differentiation between boxed and tray chips. Boxed chips are aimed at the DIY market and (almost always) come with a CPU cooler included, whereas the tray chips come without any fancy packaging or cooler and are aimed at OEMs buying in bulk.

Next to the CPU discontinuances, Intel also discontinued a range of Compute Sticks and NUCs with 8th-Gen chips inside.

The changes don't come as a surprise. By now, the 9th-Gen chips have long-replaced the 8th-Gen parts, and the latest 10th-Generation Comet Lake-S chips

are now slowly entering the market. 

Nevertheless, you can still expect to spot the discontinued chips on retailers shelves, e-tailers websites and eBay for quite some time. The discontinuation comprises no longer shipping the products into distribution, and any remaining inventory would naturally still need to be cleared out. Who knows, you could find yourself an 8700K for a nice price in the next few weeks, though that might be asking for a bit much with the current hardware shortages.

AMD's GPU technology enters the mobile phone chip market for the first time

In addition to the release of the Exynos2100 processor, Samsung also confirmed a major event at this Exynos event, that is, the custom GPU that they have worked with AMD for many years will soon appear and will be used on the next flagship machine. The current Exynos2100 processor uses ARM’s Mali-G78GPU core with a total of 14 cores, so the GPU architecture developed by Samsung will be the next Exynos processor, and the GPU will be the focus. This is probably the meaning of Exynos2100’s GPU stacking. The key reason. Dr. InyupKang, president of Samsung’s LSI business, confirmed that the next-generation mobile GPU in cooperation with AMD will be used in the next flagship product, but he did not specify which product. Samsung is not talking about the next-generation flagship but the next one, so it is very likely that a new Exynos processor will be available this year, either for the GalaxyNote21 series or the new generation of folding screen GalaxyZFold3. In 2019, AMD and Samsung reached

Apple and Intel want to join the game, what happened to the GPU market?

Intel recently announced that it will launch Xe-LP GPU at the end of this year, officially entering the independent GPU market, and will hand over to TSMC for foundry. At the 2020 WWDC held not long ago, Apple also revealed that it is possible to abandon AMD's GPU and use a self-developed solution based on the ARM architecture. It will launch a self-developed GPU next year. What happened to the GPU market? Why are the giants entering the game?    Massive data calls for high-performance GPU    Why has the demand for GPUs increased so rapidly in recent years? Because we are entering an era where everything needs to be visualized. Dai Shuyu, a partner of Aiwa (Beijing) Technology Co., Ltd., told a reporter from China Electronics News that visualization requires a large amount of graphics and image computing capabilities, and a large amount of high-performance image processing capabilities are required for both the cloud and the edge.    Aiwa (Beijing) Technology Co., Ltd. is an enterp

NVIDIA officially launches RTX 30 series mobile graphics cards

In the early morning of January 13, NVIDIA officially launched the RTX30 series of mobile graphics cards at the CES2021 exhibition. Ampere-based GPUs have also reached the mobile terminal, mainly including RTX3080, RTX3070 and RTX3060 models. In addition to improving game performance, the RTX30 series of mobile graphics cards have twice the energy efficiency of the previous generation, and support the third-generation Max-Q technology, mainly supporting DynamicBoost2.0 dynamic acceleration technology, WisperMode2.0 noise control, ResizableBAR (similar to AMD’s SAM technology) and DLSS. The third-generation Max-Q technology uses AI and new system optimization to make high-performance gaming laptops faster and more powerful than ever. These technologies include: ·DynamicBoost2.0: The CPU and GPU powers of traditional gaming notebooks are fixed, while games and creative applications are dynamic, and the requirements for the system will vary with the number of frames. With DynamicBoost2.0,
