Intel to Discontinue More Core 2-based Processors

Intel informed vendors that it will begin cleaning up its dual-core Xeon 3000-series portfolio. The 3000-series version 3040, 3050, 3060 and 3070, all based on the 65 nm Conroe core, are entered into the firm’s product discontinuance program and are going to be phased out. The high end models 3075 (2.66GHz) and 3085 (3.0GHz) will remain available for now.Source: TG Daily

Yeah, because we can all afford a quad...
A good dual can still serve you well, especially at high speeds. Runs with less power, and less heat.

I think he means consumer-based boards... server boards dont OC as well and need FB-dimms, not to mention, they cost a F*cKl*ad... Skulltail is whats up.

There is no socket 775 dual socket motherboard. If you want two CPUs you gotta go socket 771 which is the true server socket for Intel. Socket 775 Xeons are pretty much rebranded Core 2s.
