    AMD - 04/09
    Intel - 04/22 (I hear 04/29)

    And AMD has already done a pre-drop price drop, via instant rebates.

    Distributor-only "instant rebates" are used before announced price drops to lower CPU costs before official price drops. Stockholders don't see massive instant rebates, they don't come through on the POS reports. (These are distributor only instant rebates)

    Interestingly enough, the vast majority of the items with HUGE disty instant rebates are the one's listed as "EOL" in my original post. ("Cleaning out my Channel" Ala Eminem, but with Hector Ruiz singing)

    Coincidence? I think not! And a major Etailer is snapping up almost all of our rebated CPUs.

    MODEL INSTANT REBATE
    ADA4200CUBOX 52.00
    ADO4200CUBOX 52.00
    ADA4600CUBOX 71.00
    ADO4600CUBOX 71.00

    The FX-7x series are per pair of course for the Quadfather platform (a single FX-74 is $499.99 on Newegg right now)

    Based on that last list, it seems AMD is aiming for the low-budget market... And they don't even place a quad core solution underneat the Q6600 (why would they EOL the FX-70?)

    SuperSix - I've heard from someone of the engineering department at AMD now, the news agrees with what you said initially.

    Chozart- Agena FX is releasing for the desktop (8x8)

    Lookout for Q2 some time, mid or late. I've heard they maybe releasing some earlier than expected.

    Well, Newegg's already selling the OEM x2 3600+ Brisbane for $73 shipped as of this past weekend using a coupon code (if you get their email newsletter).

    The guys at [H]ardOCP said it best: ( sorry I can't find that particular post, but it goes something like this )

    AMD marketing team: shields are down, primary weapons are of line, etc,.
