Probably age and being out of stock. Can always include it as a custom part.

Not old to us, but in tech, that's some major time. I remember hearing about some company's non-compete agreement stating that the employee couldn't work in the field for 5 years as that was long enough to make all their knowledge useless...

Tech evolves much faster (for now) than we do. ~7 years is the difference between these two chips:
Intel Core2 Extreme Processor QX6800 http://ark.intel.com/products/30720
Intel Extreme Edition i7-5960X http://ark.intel.com/products/82930/Intel-Core-i7-5960X-Processor-Extreme-Edition-20M-Cache-up-to-3_50-GHz

That's a huge difference for what are, at the respective time periods, the Extreme Edition CPUs that cost ~1000$. What may have made a high-end computer part back then may just be a more midrange part, if that, now.
