P67 chipset motherboards available online now!
 
Well, for those who don't believe in waiting, P67 motherboards can be ordered now. Superbiz has the Asus P8P67 for $152.99, an excellent deal in anybodies book. They also have the Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD3P for $156.99. And if you really want to blow a gasket on a major foundation for crazy overclocking and multi-GPU madness, they have the Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD7 for $319. (links not provided, just google P67 motherboards and hit the "shopping" tag and bunches pop up, take your pick.)

So far, only Asus and Gigabyte making an appearance, but several online shops are all showing shipping now including Superbiz, Allstarshop, CPU Solutions, NextdayPC, and a few others. CPUs to fit these motherboards still are not available, but getting your platform ready for their launch is now a full on "Go". Get yer funky Sandy Bridge on!

Just for reference, I didn't include links to respect Nvnews observance of any NDA's they may be under or required to enforce. Google will take you right to the item's referenced, but I won't be accused of being a spam-bot. Find yer own links, I'm just sounding off that they're out there now.

Unfortunately we are not reviewing Sandy Bridge, so speak/link at will. :) I'm aggregating some review links for the front page right now.

Why thank you, ragejg! Here's the original, unedited post from Rage3D's newspage I posted over there (links included):

This is making it really, really hard to wait a few more months before upgrading!

Looking at the specs in your sig, it's definately time to upgrade. 965 chipset? Goodness, it's certainly time for sure.

2600K also shows consistent gains in most areas over equally clocked Nehalems, anywhere from 5%-30%. And when SB's AVX instruction set is used for encoding/transcoding, the difference becomes night and day over contemporary i7's.

The crappy thing is that I'll probably never use Quick Sync, since Intel disables Quick Sync if a discrete card is present. :thumbdwn:

I know... it's making it incredibly difficult to sit here and wait for Bulldozer now. 4.8Ghz on air cooling makes me happy in the pants.
