Anyone bought and received an AM2 processor yet (from a retail source). I noticed that Monarch has them listed but they are notorious for taking a while to ship when they pre-order like this. Newegg just has two AM2 processors listed (both in stock): the Athlon 64 3800+ and the Sempron 3400+:

No X2 AM2s yet to my knowledge.

I'm temped to buy 3800+ (AM2) and Asus's AM2 motherboard and have a little fun. I'm usually an Intel whore, but It has been awhile since I've gone AMD.

Good question. It has the chance of being a really good overclocker I think.

Yeah my wholesalers have a 2800 sempron, 3200 A64 and the 3500.

Ingram claims 2-3 week ship time...

Yeah, you can buy it. But will you actually have it in 1-3 days? Doubt it. I can list whatever I want...doesnt mean I actually have it.

EDIT: Oh its a 4400, blech I mean the 5000+ and the FX-62 mainly.

Actually, with newegg, it will be there in 1-3 days if they show it as in stock. This is why I haven't considered the fact that Monarch has had it listed as a note of availability.

So has anybody seen anything other than the X2 4400+

I ordered an X2 4000+ from monarch, but they didn't actually have their processors. I really don't want to drop to a single core proccessor and I really don't' want to spend $500 either.

I almost bit on Monarch but as of yesterday they switched ETA to the 30th for the x2's. I'da been pissed if I bought that and it got the switcheroo. I held out though. I wanna see how the conroe fleshes out a bit, though I may get a new Mac tower and just build the AM2

Newegg now lists the 4200 / 4400 / 4600 x2s, all marked "in stock". I've not emailed to actually confirm that they're in-stock, however.

Considering they have just been listed, I am sure they are in-stock, at least until they are all bought.

4400+ just went out of stock. It lasted for a couple of days though, which I'll take a sign....I just can't read the sign.

I read from a retailer website (ncix.com) that amd's new energy efficiency processor (35w ) won't be sold in any store. They are OEM only like sempron s939.

I was waiting for EE version fo 3800+ dual core.

$1400 bucks for FX-62 . Isn't that a rather large amount of money for a Cpu that won't O/C much? Just curious guys man that seems really high priced

yes it is a bit expensive.. newegg is also price gouging, I coulda sworn the FX-62 was supposed to be priced around 1000-1100.. the first day the X2's came out on newegg they were charging 399$ for the 4200+, I bought it on Zip Zoom Fly for $368-9.
