Well that's interesting, I got a tip from twitter (thanks john_blanton!) that Sandy Bridge processors were back on sale over at Newegg.com. Sure enough, that is indeed the case:
Again, how interesting...why would Intel suddenly give the go-ahead for selling a processor that STILL won't have motherboards for sale again until at least the middle of March. When I looked for motherboards under the LGA1155 socket, this is what I found:
Uh, well, one listed as out of stock and one open box Intel-branded H67 offering. Not much else to comment on here other than we are slightly confused, but if you want to pick up a Sandy Bridge processor without a motherboard or system for whatever reason, I guess you can now...? Maybe this is just an attempt to counter AMD's latest marketing blast? Anyone have an interesting guess?
