    really i really want to install dedicated PCIe cards to deal with it but in my point of view there is NONE

    because in my point of view a closed source firmware and a ME/PSP DRM/copyprotection unit means: NONE.

      really why should i buy something what just does not "work" if you read posts like this:

      "In my case, I have one board with AST2400, and one board with a Matrox.
      (...)
      In my case, I ended up giving up on both of those boards"
      DanaG

      tell me why should i do this? people who have this kind of hardware are very "sad" people.

      why not just do what the people ask and then have a great product?
      and for example what DanaG ask is very basic stuff.
      what i ask is also very basic stuff.

      it is pure ignorance if you teach people that the product is perfect(because of a very limited use case) if in fact it is not.

        I suggest you re-read my original post.
        In short:
        A. Server users (read: the ones that usually use AST chipset) usually remote manage their server. I doubt that I ever tried running a full UI console on any of my (many) AST based servers.
        B. Server users (see above) usually use complex hardware (be that 25/40/100GbE NIC, hardware RAID, SSDs, etc) that requires binary firmware.
        C. I never stated that it anywhere near perfect. I only stated that 99.9999999% of all AST users simply don't care as long as their web-based KVM works reliably...
