    A figment of your imagination?

    You meant LGA 1336? It's called obsolete :)

    It's not an April fools, this have been out for a few days already.
    On top of that the LGA-2011 CPUs will have PCI Express 3.0 support and more than 32 lanes, as an extra four lanes will be connected to the X79 chipset to boost the performance of the eight SAS/SATA 6Gbps ports beyond Intel's DMI 2.0 interface which remains at PCI Express 2.0 speed.

    LGA-1356 seems to be reserved for Intel's Xeon's and won't be used for a consumer platform afaik.

    14 USB 2.0 make that 18 USB ports with your monitor. :D
    BUT.. 0x USB 3.0... What the heck?!

    Now, you would think that Intel didn't put USB 3.0 because they want to push Thunderbolt crap.
    But nope, no Thunderbolt.

    I guess that what happens with the lack of competition... looks like Intel is pulling another P4 crap, but this time on motherboard features.

    I don't care in reality, as all our boards that we purchase have the NEC chip... but it doesn't push USB 3.0 out. So, no stuff (well almost) for it comes out as market share is too low.
