Intel has released a Product Change Notification and it seems that many 10th Gen Comet Lake-U, Ice Lake-U, and 11th Gen Lakefield series of low-power processors days are numbered. These chips are now in product discontinuance, with final shipments being made in April 2022.

Seeing Lakefield retired so early (released in Q2 2020) is a little bit of a surprise, as these are hybrid CPUs that make use of Intel’s 3D stacking Foveros tech on the 10nm Tremont architecture. It had one high performance CPU core with four power-efficient cores, taking design cues from cellphone chips. It benched well enough, but few products based on the tech have made it to market, so it seems that these two CPUs are all that we shall see of Intel's Lakefield.
If you want a hybrid architecture CPU and you can wait, then Alder Lake would seem to be the best option. However, if you’re desperate for these 11th and 10th generation parts, there is still time to pick them up as final shipments will come at the end of April 2022.

There were articles in May that MSFT cancelled their Surface Neo product, which was the original target for the Lakefield chip.Reply
I'd say lakefield was more of a proof-of-concept that hybrid architectures can work in X86-64, and I'm sure Intel would learn the lesson (if any, I'm not sure) from Lakefield and improve it with Alder LakeReply
