DFI has announced a desktop Pentium M motherboard specifically targeted at enthusiasts. The 855GME-MGF is apparently loaded with overclocking options, including async AGP and PCI busses, an adjustable CPU multiplier, and front-side bus speeds up to 250MHz. DFI's press release includes some very interesting DOOM 3 results that show a Pentium M overclocked to 2.8GHz beating an Athlon 64 4000+ quite handily.
The 855GME-MGF will apparently ship to distributors and resellers next week, bringing the dream of desktop Pentium M systems that much closer. Newegg already has boxed Pentium M 725, 735, 745, and 755 processors in stock too.
