I'd been wondering why this had not appeared in the news section
Ticks a lot of boxes for me, 10GbE, 2.5GbE, 5 x M.2, Wi-Fi 6E, BLE 5.2.
Any idea on when these are being released to the wild?

I do not like short lifespan's! With literally weeks away from all new and much more advanced MB tech introductions, who really cares about old technology like this? Or making buying decisions on any major or more far reaching system changes at this point in time? Before any upgrading, I would want to see all the cards on the table including Intel, before laying out big $$$ for a new MB, which essentially forces me to building a brand new system! Looks like marketing is a little too late and trying to push old gear out of the door!

From what we know so far, Intels Alderlake will compete with AMD's Ryzen 5000 3D V-Cache equipped line, So it only makes sense that vendors push out more X570 boards with extra features and/or refresh current stock.

As for newer tech like DDR5, It'll take 2-3 years before we see speeds and timings reach a good middle ground, Just like how we did with DDR4, Took a few years before 3000MHz with good timings was pretty normal.

This board won't have a short lifespan as we won't be getting Zen 4 for roughly another year most likely considering all current info points to a late 2022 release.

Also let's not forget, that "who really cares about old technology like this?" is pretty much a vast majority of users I'd say.
Most people in this forum are enthusiasts, but there are far more people that aren't.

Just look at Steam's surveys, most doesn't have the highest end components, or the latest for that matter. To those people, this would be an excellent choice.

I know several people that buys the 2nd newest generation when a new one launches, because of several reasons; It's mostly cheaper, that tech has had time to evolve and mature and jumping on the already mentioned, unlike new tech that we all are the beta users for bascially.

There are many reasons why not go for the latest in tech, but rather a bit old. I for one, have become one of those. I have lost interest in building etc and just want to enjoy my PC, hence relaibility is key in my opinion. And then getting the latest might not result in that, probably becuase of updates etc to adress issues that might arise.

I mean, in the end, there's probably several reasons why many people are still on older Intel platforms...

Not everyone can afford the latest and greatest.
