The Asus Pentium M Desktop Adaptor has been very extensively discussed in forums all over the world, as Socket479 boards from AOpen and DFI were based on the Intel 855GM chipsets, thus lacking features that users might want in a desktop board, like Dual Channel Memory and Native SATA, and they did command a reasonable premium due to its exotic nature, therefore it wasn’t that well-recieved by consumers worldwide.
