I know there are beta bios' out there for at least my GD70, but I was hoping for a general release before these procs were out.

Very often, smaller stores post prices well ahead of having physical stock. It's a simple marketing trick because it gets people to place "virtual holds" on CPUs, plus that store gets publicity (we're talking about them right now).

Hmm, here's the response from the store:

"
Hi Nav,

Yes we do in small quantity. We reserve them for system building 1st. Customers who want only the cpu will have to wait a week or so. Feel free to pre-order yours.

You could be right, rooster, they figure that no one will order a whole rig from them using this cpu...........use it as a ploy to get preorders in.

Heh.... how much do you want to be that it would take at least 2 weeks for them to complete a full system build????? :)
