    wants "most fast memory" badly :D
    I dont think this chipset will have a built-in intel graphics solution, then what UHD has to do with a motherboard ? Am I missing something ?

    That is the most interesting (and unexpected) info in this product demo. Perhaps 4 DIMM is quad but if you go 8 it drops to dual. Or maybe the whole platform is moving back to dual. Regardless, the only "quad" we have is editorial and the actual documentation does say dual.

    M.2 slot is missing, as is SATA express.

    It is hard to see with that software-enhanced 1 mpixel camera that was apparently used but I believe the SATA Express is in the lower right corner and the M.2 is between the top and 2nd PCIe slot.
