Any current motherboards with ability to exceed 32+ GB RAM?

I know that with Windows Vista Ultimate x64 supports up to 128 GB of max RAM. However, among the current generation of desktop motherboards, the highest capacity size I have been able to find so far is support for up to 32 GB -- and the actual memory chips to actually get to 32 GB do not appear to be available yet. Therefore, a few questions:

(1) Are there any motherboards available yet that are able to have a higher max RAM capacity than 32 GB?
(2) Does the max RAM capability make a difference based on whether you buy AMD or Intel processors?
(3) Does Opeteron have more RAM capacity than Intel Quad Core? If so, are there any Opterons that can run on a desktop (not server) PC?
