tigerdirect has the i920 for $399 not sure where you are looking though...

it also doesn't require spending $350+ on a board and $200-$300 on RAM just to get that processor.
it can just drop right into an existing AM2+ board (via bios update) with no platform change at all.

i've seen it listed as well @ $379.
Unfortunately, unless they can show some real performance gains vrs the current crop of intel quads (45nm or 65nm) they're pricing themselves completely out of the ballpark.

Looking at those prices, I think they're competing against the wrong platform by pricing themselves just slightly below i7.
