I am watching the availability of a lot of web shops for a few months now and noticed that it is very hard to get an i5 gen 8 NUC while the 7th gen is still widely available. If I search for it I cannot seem to find an explanation. Does anyone know what’s going on?
Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.
Regarding your concern, we would like to recommend you to check our Intel® Authorized Distributors and Approved Suppliers for inquiries about availability and where to buy for Intel® NUCs 8th generation and other Intel's products.

As for why it is hard to find Intel® NUCs with Intel® Core™ i5 processors, it is worth mentioning that we do not sell directly so we recommend you to address this inquiry to our Authorized Distributors and Approved Suppliers.

Hello Andrew, thanks for the clear answer. I will ask my question to our suppliers. My question here was because maybe someone from the community knew if there was some kind of strategy behind this. Regards, T
