Last Asus DVDRW (PATA) which was Pioneer re-badge

I did some hunting but did not find anything quickly.
Does anyone know offhand which Asus model DVD burner was a Pioneer (nec chipset) inside? I know they are probably not available retail anymore.
What is the model number and the equivalent Pioneer model no.?
Where I’m located Pioneer is extremely difficult to find, but Asus is everywhere, (including older models.;)) so I can keep my eye out for one.

IIRC, the last Asus’ rebadge of a Pioneer-NEC drive was DRW-1608P3S, a DVR-111D clone. None of the Asus 18x, 20x, and 22x rebadged drives since then have NEC chipsets.

Thanks, that’s what I was looking for.
