The OEM Thoroughbred 1700+ is temporarily out of stock at Newegg, but will be back in stock on November 16 at a new lower price of $58.
If you can’t wait that long, you can buy the retail version now for $65. I did.
Again, these are TBredAs, not TBredBs. View these as slightly faster Palominos that are harder to cool (due to smaller core and not much less power). You want at least a copper bottom on the heatsink for this one.
There’s some rumors going around that 1800+ TBred Bs will show up next month, but I haven’t seen anything that would confirm that.
BTW, if there are any resellers out there, when you get lower-speed TBreds, you’ll sell more of them if you clearly state that that’s what you have.
