Other Dual sockets? As other have said, no. King of the Hill is the SR2.

But there are Quad sockets out there...

Looking like the E5645 & the E5649 are the best deals so far.

Cost of the top end Xeon's is what has driven me in another direction, even more so when the SB Xeon list and pricing was released.

I have my doubts we'll be seeing an overclockable dual socket SB-E board. I think the SR-2 is going to be a rarity for quite some time.
