X58 = Enterprise/High end workstation
P55 = Mainstream

P65/67 is P55's successor, not X58's, even if the CPU's are on the same performance plane

You don't need 3+ channels of ram for gaming or 99% of mainstream use. Once you get into software that actually makes use of that you're talking about software that is bounds and above more expensive than the components in any mainstream based build, and probably backed by a corporate wallet.

It makes perfect sense. The boards are already expensive, why add more complexity, engineering, and cost to a board where it is unneeded, even in the enthusiast overclocking realm (when those truly serious about going all out will get the High End boards anyway...).

EDIT: OT: This doesn't assuage my concerns even the slightest about future socket compatibility. He's merely spouting speculation of old news so he can get Pageviews while getting another crack and chiding intel for the SATA issue. I'm saying the jury's still out on this one, but I do suspect IB will be pin compatible with SB, but to get the full shebang you'll probably need a new mobo.

Yes you dont NEED but for those doing video editing they would WANT more ram. 8gb less leads me to believe it won't come out this way...

That's funny, I live near an Ivy Bridge outside Charlottesville

Apparently X68 will be quad channel memory... Talk about a waste as it's being used on 1155 sockets.
