    So who's making these fakes? Surely nobody has the required equipment in their road side shack.

    you can read the discussin on Neo comparison thread :D..

    simple observation:
    the pcboard is thin and the copper layer thickness is thin ( can be seen on through joined-holes).

    I'd be interested how can you determine that from a single photo ?

    I presume that this is a multilayer construction, so what's the buildup of the official Intel board and the "fake" in terms of core/prepreg/Cu thickness ?

    my experience as software/hardware for my work

    easy way is look on real Intel, and compare and look in detail your eyes
    there are may ways to make multilayers PCB..
    look on active components part numbers and the label (fake one is not good in labeling)..
    and many you can find more when you are start dealing with components and working in hardware/sfotware related works
