  Fermilab is developing Project-X, a high intensity superconducting H machine for high energy physics experiments. The first stage is 1 mA average, 3 GeV linac operating in CW mode. Its front-end comprises a LEBT section with magnetic focusing and pre-chopping, a 162.5 MHz RFQ and ~10 m long MEBT section which includes a high bandwidth, bunch-by-bunch capable chopper. The latter extracts, out of a nominal 5 mA peak 162.5 MHz train, and arbitrary bunch structure able to meet the requirements of different experiments. Acceleration from 2.1 MeV to 3 GeV is accomplished through five families of SRF cavities operating at three frequencies: Half-wave resonators (162.5 MHz), spoke cavities (two families at 325 MHz) and elliptical cavities (two families at 650 MHz). In this contribution, we present the status of the CW linac lattice design and results from recent beam physics studies.
