I believe Intel's manufacturing deal with Micron did not go beyond Gen2 Optane used on Ice Lake, so Micron's early exit would not affect Intel's Gen3 Optane plans.

Intel doesn't have to produce pcie5/cxl SSD drives to use cxl. They only need to produce an external cxl memory controller chip that communicates with the current DIMM chips in whatever package format they are converted to.

optane is still selling gen 1 very slowly. so we will never see gen 3 or 4... those are doomed. it was a nice experiment but its time for intel to refocus on foundry and logic processes and see how that gamble goes.... it a big gamble
