i guess i'm late to the game again but i was just doing some comparison shopping on the newegg and i see that the 8 core 1900x is the only one listed, that is equipped with the "virtualization technology", and i'm asking myself why...

..seems like kind of a waste to create a new socket, package, and platform, and not include all of the bells and whistles...or maybe it's just a typo ? 

is there some reason why the two big brothers are not given the virtualization ??

welp, that wasn't a real popular socket, kind of a dead end, but i did put together a machine on a gigabyte p55-ud5 ...only thing is the sheila is still using it for her main office machine and daily web browser (shrug)...it's still up and running and she would kill me if i changed anything,...she won't even let me put win 10 on it,....crazy woman likes her win 8.1,...but there are a few 1156 mobos out there in the world...
