Looks like a lot of companies are making WS class boards for the Xeon E5 series. The C606 chipset used looks very similar to x79 with the addition of SAS (was promised with x79).

Interesting how Intel could not get the 6Gps speed on the SAS ports. Seems they really did have trouble with their "southbridge" on this chipset.

Anyone going to get one of these? Intel17? ;)

Hmm...I was really looking forward to the E5 launch, but the non-working BCLK straps really make it not worth it for me...at least not at these ultra-high-end prices :(
