thanks for the quick reply

No, I think that was some weird situation where they got pre-release chips. The actual ship date is the 17th though.

The guys that you have been seeing them around ocn.net have gotten them locally. You can try hitting your local electronics retailers, or any small electronics retailers in your area that might have them out early.

Other than that, you've gotta wait til the 17th like everyone else.

ES chips. Engineering Samples. They are released by intel for people to test, but it's on a strict nondisclosure agreement, no selling, no nothing. They have unlocked multi's. It's not easy to get in though

A few people have gotten them from local stores where they stocked them prior to the official release date, either intentionally or by mistake. In at least one case an Intel rep visited the store and chewed them up one wall and down the other.
