So basically its a blade server concept for Desktops. This is really good for enterprise environments, but I don't see this being useful for consumers.

Im not really sure this would ever take off. The basic consumer doesnt want more slots to add more computing power and hardware into desktop PCs. They want a single thin portable device, which is why tablets, laptops, and phones do so well. Then you have the overclockers and gamers and this doesnt suit them as well either because you wont be able to put exotic cooling or even large cooling heatsinks for that matter on so many devices crammed into a small area. It really just seems to me like it would tailor to someone wanting to set up a server with more processing power than a standard PC which we already have optio0ns for, juyst not in such a small space and not in a way that you can add an additional CPU socket for as needed. Outside of that, I cant see what market this would be for.

How is this more modular than current desktops? A daughterboard with soldered CPU, IO ports, and who-knows-what else act as a single unit (especially when any part of it needs to be replaced), as opposed to the current system of replaceable motherboard, cpu, ram, etc.

The idea of blade servers is exactly this - buy once then throw away when they reached EOL - no upgradeability during its lifespan.

If Intel came out with some pcie driver that could enable pooling of resources of other leftover pcs via a gpu or chipset pcie interface, imagine the pile of trash you could build

This thing is the first step in that rats nest.
