Hi there, I have been trying to track down one of the new 4000+ mobile A64's since they were announced and supposedly immediately available. Does anybody know where in the UK i could get one. I have tried every online retailer i can find with no joy. I have even tried a couple of American sites including Newegg but no luck there either. With a clock speed of 2.6ghz that is a beats of a cpu and more powerful than the 939 4000+. I am getting a SLI socket 754 board and 2 x 7800gtx's and reckon this will make an awesome pc with one of these cores. I already have a 754 setup with a MSI K8N Neo Platinum mobo and a A64 3400+ and a gig of pc 3200 but i reckon the 3400+ might choke the gtx's in SLI which is why i want a mobile 4000+. Any help will be much appreciated.

Kind regards,
Shaun Brown.

Well, for Mobile parts, 'immediate availability' usually means you can get it if you're an OEM who makes Notebooks/Laptops...(like HP/Compaq, Acer, etc.).
In the mobile segmant, we still have the old problem that Laptops are not really meant to be built by an individual user like a desktop PC and consequently, getting mobile parts can often prove to be pretty difficult, especially if it's new stuff.

Also, if you're going to buy two GeForce 7800GTX cards and a new board and processor, you might aswell buy a Socket 939 motherboard and 939-pin Desktop Athlon 64 4000+ which is slightly cheaper than its mobile counterpart and provides twice the memory-bandwidth (which does more or less make up for the lower clockspeed, depending on application).

Furthermore, just out of curiosity, what motherboard were you planning to buy?
So far, I haven't seen or even heard of a Socket 754 motherboard with two PCI-E x16 slots for SLI, so I'd be interested in a link to such a board if you have found one...

Epox make one the EP-8NPA SLi here' ">http://www.epox.com.tw/eng/products_content.php?ps=375 Albatron also make one but not released for a week or so and some of the other major manufacturers are going to make them. It was only a matter of time until SLI was available for 754 after pci-express came out. A 754 sli board only cost £75 in the UK compared to £100+ for a decent 939 board. On top of that i would also have to replace my memory as well. If push comes to shove then i will use my current 3400+ with a SLI board but i would rather have that mobile 4000+ which is more powerful than the 939 4000+ and uses less power as well so in theory should run cooler and need a less noisy hsf.
