High end platforms seem to alway's get a bum deal. Im pretty sure I read (several Years ago) that sandybridge chips would make an appearance on X58. At the time it was just a rumor such as this, but probably affected peoples purchasing decisions. I always assume that one socket will see one generation and consider it a bonus if it doesnt.
