Cannot determine which Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors are available as Boxed retail version and as Tray version


Check if the Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors is not discontinued:

  1. Visit the Intel Product Specifications website (ARK).
  2. Search specifications by the processor number or navigate by selecting Processors > Intel® Xeon® Processors > select the processor family > select the specific processor.
  3. View the processor's Status in the processors' table or in the Essentials section of a processor's specifications page. The Status may be Discontinued or Launched. Also, take note of the Launch Date for the processor which is also listed in the Essentials section. Very new processors may take some time to ramp up in availability. Older processors can be difficult to locate for purchase.

  1. Visit the Intel Product Specifications website.
  2. Navigate by selecting Processors > Intel® Xeon® Processors > and select the processor family you are interested in, for example, 4th Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors.
  3. Under the family name, select the Retail Box Filter to view a list of processors with a Boxed retail version.
  4. If checking a specific processor, open the Specifications page for that processor, and then click Ordering and Compliance. If a Boxed version is available, it will be listed under Ordering and Spec information. Processors listed without Boxed are Tray processors.
