You mean... like on any Intel Core i7 X58 as well.

I like AMD just as much as the next person, and think that P55 has some silly built in limitations/brick walls, but that doesn't mean that X58 ceases to exist! Hell, X58 will soon(2010 H1) be getting 32nm 6 core/12 thread CPU's, which are not coming to LGA1156 anytime soon.
