    Where are the new Athlon II cpu's?

    Earlier this month AMD supposedly launched new Athlon II cpu's. Review sites reviewed them. They included the Athlon II X4 640, X3 445, X2 260, and X2 245e to name the ones I can think of right now. I haven't seen any of these on sites like newegg. Anyone have any idea when they are being released? I have noticed that newegg has slowly lowered the cpu's prices to line up with where the prices where supposed to go once these cpu's where released.

    Because their distributors do not have them:

    Malabs is one of newegg's, Tiger Direct's, and ZipZoomFly's main distributors...and they don't have any of those CPU's.

    well that makes sense and I kind of assumed that the distributors didn't have them to supply everyone else. I was just wondering why. No one made it sound like it was a paper launch with these cpu's so I figured we would see them immediately. I guess thats not the case though and for some reason AMD isn't getting them out there for some reason. The only thing I could think of is that they are giving distributors and retailers a chance to sell some of the other stock they have before they give them a new set of cpu's that will take over as the top cpu in their in particular lineup. The X4 640 being the top end X4 over the X4 635, the X3 445 being the top X3 over the X3 440, and the X2 260 over the X2 255 as far as the athlon II lineup goes.

    Stupid question...

    Is is possible to order from these guys directly (I realize that they probably only sell in bulk, but why not ask)?
