MSI tease an upcoming X299 motherboard

 
Computex is coming and with it will come numerous hardware reveals. Right now it is expected that Intel will release their X299/Skylake-X series of CPUs and motherboards at the event, which means that we should soon be seeing a lot of new X299 motherboards.  
 
MSI has not revealed what looks like an X299 motherboard, which comes with 4 reinforced PCIe 3.0 slots and 3 usable M.2 slots. At this time it is unknown how Skylake-X’s PCIe bandwidth/resources will be utilised, though it is expected that all of these M.2 slots will be usable with 4x PCIe 3.0 bandwidth when used in a supported configuration.  
 
This motherboard is clearly part of an HPDT (High-Performance Desktop) platform, as both Intel’s Z270 and AMD’s X370 motherboard chipsets do not have enough PCIe resources to support this kind of PCIe configuration.
