Windows 7: Motherboard and CPU power restrictions

Motherboard and CPU power restrictions

Why is it that AMD socket motherboards specify CPU power limits and Intel socket motherboards do not. (yes I did google)

Edit: It's not a quiz question! It does suggest another reason for Intel to be a better option - better CPU power management.

I would have expected some hardware buff to know the answer
