Don't wanna wait until next month for Intel's Lynnfield processors? Take a trip to Taiwan. The folks at TweakTown have posted a video shot in Taipei's computer market, where "literally all of the PC hardware shops" are already selling (or at least listing) Lynnfield-based Core i5 and Core i7 chips along with P55 motherboards.
The shops are apparently charging around $200 for the Core i5-750, $300 for the Core i7-860, and $600 for the Core i7-870. TweakTown's video doesn't show any boxes for Lynnfield products themselves, but there are plenty of P55 mobo boxes to go around: we can spot packages for Gigabyte's P55-UD3P, P55-UD4P, and P55-UD6, not to mention Asus' P7P55D.
At least some Lynnfield CPUs are definitely slipping through the cracks ahead of release, though. A member of a Taiwanese forum recently posted images of a retail-boxed Core i7-750 and a matching MSI P55-GD65 motherboard, which he followed with screenshots of the parts getting overclocked.
