This seems unlikely.  Socketing adds cost up front, and low cost is a
primary goal.  Also the demand for upgrade would be relatively low.

Video editing requires low latency storage rather than large amounts of
memory.  The files, being often larger than memory, cause the cache to be
filled with single-use data, which is a waste.  You get the same cache
effect just by copying the files.
