I'm from Portugal, and here not even one store is selling the i5 8400 processor. How do I know when the intel returns to stock?
Contact an Intel authorized distributor in order to confirm the availability of the Intel® i5-8400 processor:
The link I provided is an Intel website. You can select your country, and view the distributors in your country.
Why ask distributors? Because they are the ones who get the processors from Intel and put them in the retail channel. That is the way it works.
So I received this response from the official distributor of my country.
"Thank you for your email.
We are waiting for the manufacturer to not make available dates for the material already ordered.
At the moment BX80684I58400 (I believe this is), we remain unpredicted by the manufacturer.
As soon as I have dates I will send it to you by email."
Nobody knows how to give an answer?
Simply the Intel shit says nothing, it's simple
This is a support forum for Intel products. If you had a problem with the processor, you would ask it here.
What you need to do, since you do not have a problem with the processor's functionality, is to contact the Intel office in your country.
