When I was browsing the internet, I found the first retail motherboard for Icelake xeon.

This mobo supports LGA4189 and 8ch DDR4 3200 Rams.
CPU supports PCI4.0.

MAX TDP of CPU seems to be 270W.

Is it time to get Icelake Xeon?
I'm excited about this and 2nd gen optane ssd.

That board has a healthy feature set for its ATX format. The ATX power connector location is a bit strange as the 24-pin cable will block a lot of air flow intended for the CPU and RAM in a standard front to back server case.

Not bad, but only 1 M.2, no additional nvme ports?

Agree the power connector location.

let's see what SM may release.
