Here it is on Newegg!

Yay, that should put a lid on doubters; and that took, what, the expected 2 weeks to get from vendors to retail?

Edit: Oh, the retail 5130 is there, too.

More about : omg woodcrest

AMD fanboys have been owned. Especially sharikou.

Well he can't actually afford one so I don't think we'll see anything from him.

Yeah, looks like the horde was wrong about yields/ramp, but being wrong is their norm anyway...so no one should be surprised.

Ahh!! Limit of 4 per person. I guess availability isn't going to be a problem. :wink:

The first one is OEM actually but still, burn baby burn.

Oh yeah! Now I hope Conroe retails a lil faster with its launch. Being that I have seen on other Forums that people are ordering limited Conroe's and receiving them from some website (don't remember). It seems by launch Conroe will be more available.

Now to Action Man, if I say Woodcrest sucks, will you send me one? :p

Your link doesn't work but I'll take your word for it.
July 13, 2006 7:11:14 AM

No but I may send an envelope of suspicious white powder. :wink: :p

Don't worry, the next argument is ' they are in stock because they aren't selling' :)  ... I guarantee it!!!

You're brilliant, Jack!

I am surprised the horde hasn't shown up in this thread yet.
July 13, 2006 7:58:14 AM

Opteron 285

They are looking after some BS. Once they find some, they will show up like symphonic orchestra spaming THG.

I wonder if he will buy a couple and run his own benchmark like he wants :)  the results would be a real hoot.

No, he's apparantly lost interest in doing the tests now that they're on sale:

we still wait for the "fair" benchmark you have promissed.


After reading the stories that Woodcrest would crap out by itself, I lost interest doing the test. Why bother wasting my precious time testing the crap? USA government already rejected Woodcrest, need I say more?

haha, i'll take what I can get. 4242 Main St., Dino Island. Thanks!
July 13, 2006 8:13:15 PM

umm its not in stock on NCIX yet, says so right there...also on ComputersHQ says "check availablity" call a number..

The one on newegg is OEM so has no retail box, that tells me its not a current stepping so might be faulty.

I'm happy to see them arriving, but please post some better locations for purchase for those that DO want to buy these.

thx :)

THEY'RE IN STOCK BECAUSE THEY AREN'T SELLING!!!11 BRAND LOYALTY RULEZ!!! :lol:

I talked to the guy at NCIX, he said they will not send them out until Intel "Officially" releases them. So even if they have them, they will not send them. Bummer.

I smell Opteron price cut. Actually, only the Xeon 5160 interests me (and it's available!!!)

Sadly, my company won't buy the Woodcrest until HP packages them expensive ProLiant cases and charges an arm and leg for support. Which might be next month...

Death to the retarded Netburst.
July 15, 2006 4:20:36 PM

Yeah, that happens; newegg had the X6800 up but quickly removed it.
