Then don't use the unavailable Intel service to stream(oh wait!). This service hasn't even launched yet, and people are freaking out. I'm fairly certain this will have no effect on anything, ever, except maybe give ideas to other media services(Boxee etc).

CES needs to happen first.

So in other words, wait until after Jan 9th... when P67 officially releases.. and after Intel decides to exert some competitive pressure on its own family. Hello... AMD? You out there... AMD?

I've been patiently waiting for x58 mobos to finally come down too. It's amazing, AFAIK the price hasn't budged even a tiny bit in the 26 months since the chipset had been released.

Talk about excellent longevity in the high-end enthusiast market.

X58 boards have both a northbridge and southbridge (IOH and ICH respectively) while P67 boards only have one chip (still called the PCH platform controller hub? I guess). X58 boards also have 6 RAM slots while P67 use 4. X58 gives more PCI-E lanes. X58 supports Gulftown. X58 is the enthusiast platform while P67 is mainstream. X58 boards are of course going to be more expensive due to all these reasons.

Yeah, they probably just cost a lot to make. No point in dropping the price if you're going to lose money.
