Does Intel manufacture older generations of (4th gen) Intel Core processors?

I recently did a little research on several different industrial embedded computers for a project that I am working on. It turns out that a lot of these industrial fan less PCs can be purchased with the Intel 4th Generation Intel® Core™ i5 Processors (in this case Intel 4th Gen Core i5-4300U Dual Core), which had a launch date in 2013.

 

Since these are new industrial PCs, does this mean that even though Intel is marketing 8th, 9th, 10th and so on processor, they are still manufacturing and supporting the older generation of processors?

 

Or does this mean that at some point in time, that specific company (Advantech) bought an over abundance of these processor and now they are continuing to sell these industrial PCs until they run out?

 

Does this mean that they are selling Intel processor that are past the life cycle and a different hardware industrial PC should be selected?
