Yeah, the new Haswell-E CPUs and X99 chipset can handle Intel Thunderbolt Technology, all you need is a motherboard ready for it, respectively it needs to have a Thunderbolt Extension card connector or a direct connector on the I/O shield.
All three boards we've seen from Asus so far, does have a TB Extension connector on it, below you can see where they're located:

I got the 5960X cancelled, went to Microcenter today and paid $900.00 for it.

Cool, Glad they canceled your order.
I had to go ahead and pay a little more since the closest Microcenter to me is in Atlanta, GA

Well holy cow!

These enthusiast chipsets have a long shelf time so don't rule it out. Don't expect it soon either.
