To start off with, the CPU won't be hindered by a forced voltage limitation, on top of no longer having CPU voltage directly linked to memory voltage. This means that future Intel boards won't be limited in what memory they can use solely based on system voltage. The good news hasn't stopped there – the Core i7 is potentially going to have an unlocked memory multiplier, letting you change memory frequency on the fly, something any decent enthusiast board must have.
Other good news includes a reconfigurable Turbo Boost, at least on certain models.
