Expensive And Large - Intel D5400XS Motherboard
Intel developed the D5400XS motherboard specifically for the Skulltrail system, and it seems like it is still a work in progress. It looks as though this will also remain the sole board for Intel's new platform. The large motherboard makers such as Asus, MSI and Gigabyte currently do not have plans to produce a Skulltrail board, due to the prohibitive cost.
