Good article! I find it interesting that David is reserving judgement a bit on the successful ramp of Intel's 45nm process due to the new materials and use of dry patterning.

Everything I've heard about Intel's 45nm process indicates it is going quite well. Recently Intel announced some delays in ramps for certain products, but this was easily explained by Intel not needing to ramp so quickly since AMD is still busy shooting itself in the foot. Is it possible Intel is having some of the issues David alludes to?

Supposedly the Penryn desktops are available now, but there's no listing for them on pricewatch, newegg doesn't have them, and a few other places I checked that claim to have them show them as "out of stock" or availability in 2-3 weeks. Since they jettisoned the P4, Intel has been quite good at getting large quantities of CPUs available on the announced ship date, so this is rather odd. It could be a logistical issue or it could be the aforementioned lack of competition, but it will be interesting to see what kind of volume they can get with these how fast.
