    I am still unable to purchase any dual core P4 (Smithfield) CPU even though they were released a month ago.
    Does anyone know when they are supposed to be available?
    Also, i would like to know which mobos are going to support them.

    Thanks in advance!

    It was probably just a "paper release", I doubt they will be available to the mainstream market until at least mid-summer.

    If I'm not wrong, they are only sold it OEM PCs now (Dell XPS Gen5 and Alienware system). They would be out in the market very soon. Wait! Patience is a virtue...

    At ICC they said 3rd quarter for any getting into the channel.

    But they also said availability will be VERY limited. Kinda like the X800XT PE's I guess.

    Pretty much dual-core won't be readily available until Intel tranistions to 65nm process.

    Well, I'm not sure how much half a million CPUs shipped in half a year is, but I'm guessing not a lot by Intel's standards.

    "The reason cited is a lack of major demand."

    Well, apparently you just haven't been demanding enough!
