Well, desktop boards will always be inferior in terms of performance
and features, compared to server boards, so it's not something
surprising that only a handful of them support this tech. Desktop
boards have low-cost as target rather than features for the
enthusiastic power user. That's why I suggested it, because I'm using
it in my own desktop computer.
