Amazon has them right now.

I don't think obtaining the CPU is the issue if there is a serious motherboard issue that will require people to wait, though this is totally off topic..

I suppose a realistic question is, Is there any MB that do not have this problem?

not the CPUs but the Motherboards might take a price hike, but why would they do this?? SB is mainstream not enthusiast.

Have you ever taken even a high school level economics class? Prices are dictated by the market. First of all Intel is competing with AMD, meaning that if Intel ever decides to charge much more for their cpu's then customers will buy AMD's cheaper offerings, prompting Intel to lose business. In that case Intel has no other logical choice but to lower prices.
If anything cpu prices will continue to stay relatively low. The economy is already starting to recover and while the dollar has weakened it is no where near enough to lead to the kind of inflation you are talking about.
Also, its not so hard to invest your money in such a way as to beat inflation.
I don't think you've ever taken an economics course in your life.

Intel CPU Maker = Intel Chip Maker / Motherboard Maker

A Loss = A Loss...

Cost of Loss = What Consumers will pay... (That's pretty much the bottom line.)

You seem to be laboring under the delusion that Intel suffering a loss (which they most definitely are NOT, check their earnings) will somehow affect their pricing. The market, not Intel's financial status, determine pricing. There is a certain price will Intel will make the most money overall, that is not always the highest price.

Take this example. Lets say that if you sell cakes at $5 a cake you will sell 100, as 100 people are willing to spend $5 for a cake. Then lets say that if you drop the price to $3 200 people will be willing to buy the cake, as 200 are willing to spend $3 on a cake.
Even though you charge less per cake you end up making more money. 5x100=500 while 3x200=600. You made $100 more dollars by charging less for your cake. You have to factor in cost as well but a lot of manufactured things do not have a fixed cost and costs go down the more your produce, up to a point.
EDIT:I was really hoping GTech would try and argue the point.

I would, but I figured it's not worth the time, considering you know everything..

========================

Furthermore, mainstream or enthusiast, the cost of doing business is carried over to BOTH!
