Scan are now listing some Athlon 64 CPUs. The "3200" model is £375.20, the strangly marketed top-of-the-line Athlon 64 FX51 is an impressively expensive £661.53.

I'm guessing the Athlon 64 "3200" will benchmark much closer to a P4 3.2GHz than the "3200" model Barton core ever did. The FX51 seems to be pretty much a repackaged Opteron 146 (2GHz model), and as such should be the fastest x86 CPU one can buy.

For comparison, a 3.2GHz Pentium 4 costs £532.65 from Scan.
