Gigabyte's Denverton MA10 Mini-ITX motherboards

Lately a lot of details about Gigabyte’s new MA10-ST0 have emerged.
The motherboard has an impressive feature set. There are many and the first (and most exciting) one is Intel's new Denverton Atom chip. This model features the C3958 SoC with 16 cores each running at 2.0Ghz. Meanwhile the chip only outputs 31 Watts of heat.
The MA10 supports up to 512GB of RAM running in dual channel mode (128GB per stick); 10G Ethernet with Dual SFP+ ports allowing up to 20Gbs full duplex encryption with Intel QAT; IPMI 2.0 remote management; a 32GB eMMC memory module for your OS; four Mini-SAS ports - each of which supports 4 SATA ports - giving 16 SATA ports in total; and if all this isn’t enough - a Gen3 PCI-Express x8 slot.
Given the 10G Ethernet and impressive number of SATA ports, this motherboard is clearly aimed at the cold or edge storage market.
Word on the street is there will be another model called the MA10-ST1, likely with a Dual Core C3338 SoC, 2x 1GB LAN, and 2x DDR4 RAM slots.
And if this one doesn’t quite have the right spec for you, other server board manufacturers will soon be joining the Denverton party with variants on the same theme.
