I though you were going to tell us something else when I read the thread title.

They claim "In Stock" but the specs are VERY slim. I wonder if it's really pre-orders. Intel doesn't even have them listed yet. Pricey even for AU$.

Hum well frankly it suprises me it is out here before the US - the site I get the newsletter from is pretty reliable.
Plus the prices are a touch wicked eh? but there again they always are out here.

I might just check with them if they have got it right.

One caution for that chip: it has only 28 PCI-e lanes opposed to the normal 40 lanes that the 5930, 5960, all the 2011 predecessors have (that would be a deal breaker for me). Also, the Haswell-e version of the 2011 socket is wired differently than the earlier ones; you can't use a Haswell-e chip on an earlier MOBO. You also have to use DDR4 RAM with these chips; no reusing your older DDR3s

As far as I know, there is nothing wrong with the new chips, RAM, and MOBOs (other than they aren't cheap, but, then, I am) but they are a new breed and people need to be aware of that. I personally feel one should wait a bit to let prices to come down, more DDR4 RAM to become available, and bugs to be worked out but, then again, that's me.
