Z77 motherboards

Will the z77 motherboards and its CPUs be phased out by the end of this year?

what do you mean by 'phased out'? they wont be developing any more if that's what you mean

They won't be making anymore of them, but that does not mean that they are obsolete in any way. 

 

The Z77 line of motherboards and the Ivy/Sandy CPUs are still great CPUs and motherboards. The quad core Sandy CPUs are still more than powerful enough for gaming and even light video editing. 

But you are correct, no more will be made.

Short answer is no. You can still buy Sandybridge equivalents and much older processors, including Athlons from AMD.
