OcUK Bloomfield/X58 Pre-Orders
UK e-tailer Overclockers UK has put up listings for pre-orders of the 3 launch Bloomfield CPUs as well as three X58-based motherboards.  The price outlook?  Not too ridiculous actually.  The i7 920, 940, and 965 are going for £258.49, £469.99, and £822.49 including VAT respectfully.  Based on OcUK's other prices, this puts the lower-end 920 a touch over the Q9450 (£234.99), the middle 940 a fair bit more expensive than the Q9650 (£381.86), and the EE 965 quite a bit below Intel's current top chip, the QX9770 (£969.36).
The X58 chipset is, perhaps a bit unfortunately, in the top-end market, and the prices of these opening offering Bloomfield-compatibly boards reflect that.  Intel's own offering, dubbed the "SmackOver," is the cheapest at £234.99.  The other two boards currently seen come from ASUS.  The P6T Deluxe vanilla and "OC Palm Edition" boards weigh in at £252.61 and £281.99.
Now perhaps the most interesting aspect of these listings is the ETA date: October 31st.  This is earlier than the previously forecasted November launch.
How do you like the look of OcUK's pricing and ETA date?

There seem to be around 1700 guests and counting viewing the chatbox archive. Is this a bug or strange humour from the one who coded the thing?

The chat itself is working OK but yes I think the people viewing it may be a bug
