    Only One Intel 1366 Motherboard?

    parsec

      Why does Intel only offer one socket 1366 CPU motherboard in the retail consumer marketplace?

       

      Currently I believe I found eleven socket 1156 mother boards available from Intel.

       

      Given that both of these sockets support the latest model Core iX CPUs, and the top processor in Intel's line is the socket 1366 Core I7-980X CPU, and all the Extreme Edition CPUs use the 1366, why only one Intel 1366 motherboard, the DX58SO?

       

      This seems odd to me, does anyone have and insight into this?
