You can tell Intel are desperate as that is basically a server motherboard, The socket and CPU cooler attachment points are a dead give away

I instantly thought "server/workstation" as well. Given the sheer size of the VRM heatsink, I'm going to guess this thing will be sucking power like a Ford GT sucks petrol.

But I can't get over that this motherboard has 2 x 24 pin power connectors. Seriously WHY?

Because it's been rushed to compete with the 32 core Threadripper hence the chiller cooler needed at the initial reveal.

Aye, I thought that would just increase the amount of 8 pin EPS connectors on it not add an entire 24 Pin ATX

I don't know why all the fuss? The CPU for that board is called Xeon W-3175X. Ofc it is a server platform. AMD is releasing server CPUs for regular people with Threadripper. Intel just decided to take piece of that cake.
