Its a niche board for those who can afford it. For the target market  it hits the mark. Just think about it as it relates to cars. Do you need that Bugatti Veyron?  No you don't but if you can afford it then does it really matter? There is a market for high end socket 2011 boards. Coupled with a hex core chip and 64GB of memory along with those aforementioned cards will give the end user that chooses this route the highest level of performance.  Boutique PC builders sell them by the boatload to those that just want it to work with a warranty.

 

I realize its outside the scope of many people but if you can afford it why not.
