Retail supply of the the Comet Lake X (10920, 10940, 10980) is nonexisistant (5-23-20). Will this improve in the near future? Is it reasonable to expect availability of the 10980 xe by July 2020.
Intel is in the business of manufacturing and selling processors. This is a supply issue intel should address in a comunity forum so the consumer can make an informed buying decision. Retailers aren't being informed of this issue any more than the consumers and Intel has provided no press regarding this shortage. From a long time fan boy looking to build a new workstation.
The Intel Customer Support engineers are here in these technical support forums to help people with their problems. They know nothing about parts manufacturing or schedules or availability. If you want an answer to this question, you really need to be consulting the Intel Newsroom.
