lmao

Well the real reason is so u can`t put the one processor in the other`s socket.

But I don`t understand why they`d pursue 2 lines instead of just one.

they always have with server grade cpu's, both amd and intel. Again, not an answer as to why, but an answer anyway

hehe we could make a thread just on plausible explainations as to why, outside of "we don`t want home users buying these" or "to generate more money".

Socket 940/AM2 ?

I believe that server chips are often binned higher so that they will presumably be more reliable. This is often confirmed by server chips overclocking better than regular CPUs.

.. so using a different pin config/arrangement purely prevents one market using the other market`s intended chips.

Why dont we just buy server processors then? Dual processors on the same board, and they're usually cheaper.

Somebody tell me why, please.
