Right,

Sold as seen, no idea how they got there, but <A HREF="http://www.watch.impress.co.jp/akiba/hotline/20020202/e..." target="_new">Akiba</A> is linking a store in Tokyo selling 4MB and 2MB 800Mhz and 733Mhz 2MB Itaniums. Prices are approximately $300, $230 and $230 respectively. I think it is fair to say they do not carry a manufacturer warranty...

At the same time we find that Plextor have a <A HREF="http://www.watch.impress.co.jp/akiba/hotline/20020202/e..." target="_new"><b>40</b>/12/40</A> CD-RW drive out. If they burn any faster, they will be burning faster than they read - now that would be odd.... :smile:

Itaniums come at price between 3000$ - 6500$
not 250-300$
if you add another zero to the prices you published it would made sence.

Um - yes, that's why I posted - perhaps you should actually go and see the link first before you assume I cannot convert currencies.

¥39,800 for 800Mhz 4Mb cache
¥29,800 for 800Mhz 2Mb cache
¥29,800 for 733Mhz 2Mb cache

The point is I'm pretty sure that Intel didn't ship these things just in an anti-static bag to end up in an Akihabara shop window, therefore the whole issue becomes curious - no?

So, where do I buy an IA-64 mobo, power supply and memory?

i actually found a projected chip that will put out more heat than an itanium!

its the next alpha running at 1 or 1.2ghz. 0.18 micron, 90million transistors, huge die, 150Watts of heat.

The lack of thermal protection on Athlon's is cunning way to stop morons from using AMD. :)
