- The Tech Report reports AMD Quad FX processors and accompany motherboard are available in retail. All is not well for AMD’s Quad FX platform though. While the Athlon 64 FX-70 series and ASUS L1N64-SLI WS are available in retail there’s a steep price premium on processors and the required motherboard. There are only two retailers that carry the necessary Quad FX products too: Newegg and ZipZoomFly. AMD Athlon 64 FX-70 series processors of all speed grades are available from Newegg while ZipZoomFly only has the Athlon 64 FX-70 in stock. Obtaining the required ASUS L1N64-SLI WS is a challenge as neither retailer has it in stock. Pricing of the ASUS L1N64-SLI WS is $429.99 and $379.99 from Newegg and ZipZoomFly respectively: $30-80 higher than the expected $349.99 MSRP.
