ASUS E45M1-M PRO AMD E-450 APU AMD Hudson M1 Micro ATX Motherboard/CPU Combo
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 2 PCI slots on a modern motherboard
(Also a con, see below.)

Cons: I want to re-iterate comment by Wayne S. I only wish I had seen his comment before I purchased this.

This board uses a faulty ASM1083 PCI bridge chipset.
If you plan on using any of the integrated PCI devices or the 2 PCI slots then you are sure to see severely poor performance as IRQs only work in polled mode.

In the worst case you could even encounter crashes or data corruption. (I am seeing that I very often lose coherency on the RAID-drives I am running behind these PCI slots and I have to rebuild the raid set every couple of days.)

Other Thoughts: Probably going to see if I can return this to ASUS for a refund, but not holding out much hope...
