They've been down this road before, both companies, of crafting 2-socket mobos for the enthusiast segment and the bottom line is that they just don't sell very well. AMD did it and it was called the "quad-father" (two dual-core CPUs) at the time, it performed ok but it pushed the power usage numbers to ludicrous levels and thus became a pariah for that reason. I suspect an enthusiast-level dual socket FX-8350 platform would be similarly castigated by the enthusiast community, sadly, and that concern alone probably torpedoes the idea at the drawing board. For the HPC and workstation markets, where performance truly matters in the economic sense, overclocking is out anyways so those platforms are going to be based on Xeons and Opterons which already have their own dual-socket platforms. It is just the minor segment of at-home OC'ers who are into this stuff and it would appear that for most of us when we say we are "into it" that really mean we "like to read about it", which translates into very few sales. If you know your platform volume is going to be low then it becomes harder and harder to justify the expense of crafting niche products like enthusiast-class dual-socket mobos (skulltrail for example).
