Press Release: MSI announces Intel Mobile CPU based server solutions

This year is the dawn of the new era for Intel®. The onslaught of low-power, high-performing system is creeping on system integrators, OEMs, ODMs, distributors, premier channels, and retailers like a plague. One of the known manufacturer just announced their new server system based on, hold your breath, an Intel® Pentium® M Processor.

Would you believe that, the formerly known mobile processor is now integrated into a powerful system such as a server. I guess, my DFI 855GME-MGF and Intel® Pentium® M 730 is indeed a great system, acting as my file server at home. My Intel® Pentium® M-based home server is housed on an Antec Aria, with a measly 250w ATX PSU, a 512MB DDR400, a DVD drive, Intel RAID controller and 2x80GB SCSI harddrives and it never gave me a headache. It also acts as my secondary DNS server for internet, print server, and a DHCP server as well.
