    Needs to ship soon and available at retail. I'm not buying these for clients until I try it myself
    Ryzen 2700 support out of the box
    ECC memory support
    IPMI
    If they keep that GPU support change to MXM. Nobody wants a 1st gen GCN GPU. I'm not paying for that. I'm not paying for extra wires for something I'll never use. MXM maybe that's useful.

    Right where the third PCIe Slot is found, there is a weird PCIe 1x at the left of it. What the hell is that??

    The Embedded Radeon E8860 is old, GNC 1.0 based. The Motherboard must be aimed at the pure CPU Ryzens cause it makes no sense to use such GPU with the Vega based Ryzen APUs. I suppose than the Motherboard video outputs are hardwired to the embedded GPU, which means that using a Ryzen APU is not a very good idea to begin with. I find the choice rather weird...
    I'm also curious regarding if the Embedded Radeon is attached to the CPU PCIe Lanes or to the Chipset. Either both the 16x and 4x Slots are wired to Ryzen and the Embedded Radeon uses Chipset Lanes, or the Embedded Radeon uses 4 Ryzen Lanes and the 4x Slot comes from the Chipset.

    The great thing is that the -EX model would be the first AM4 Motherboard with IPMI than I'm aware of.

    The -EX version needs to put the ASPEED BMC somewhere. I am going to reserve judgment until that happens.

    @MiniKnight I agree on the GPU side.

    I find it odd that they picked a still relatively powerful separate GPU at all instead of relying on IPMI framebuffer or using an even lower powered GPU. Maybe these are intended for VDI-like installations or something but even then I'd have thought using raven ridge would give the best bang for buck.
