    so slap a $400 price tag on a motherboard and call it "creator"? you could buy an entire fully-functioning pc with that budget.

    last i checked most creators do just fine with laptops

      I think you only buy a motherboard like this if you want/need something like a 10Gbit/s network connection.
      Or 1-4 M.2 solts on board.
      If you need features like this, the price isn't too bad.​

          That's a premium mobo with 10g ethernet, 16+2 power phases and x670 chipset. Don't expect it to be cheap. Sure you can shitpost on phoronix on your raspberry pi 3 for a price of a cup of starbucks coffee.​

            ASUS EC is a thing I usually blacklist. Even in Windows if you run HWinfo they suggest to disable it as the polling causes mad latency problems, basically stutter. The LPC controller from Nuvoton/ITE etc you have on board is okay already...

              Actually, just to fact check this:

              The Starbucks® Iced Coffee Blend Clover Vertica™ (Venti) with mocha drizzle and white chocolate mocha sauce is only $7.95 (very affordable and reasonable). A raspberry pi 3 retails for $25 which is in a completely different price league. You can get 3 cups of coffee for that price.

                Sounds like a First World problem to me ... followed by senseless splitting of hairs in the remainder of the comment.

                  That terminology is a little outdated. First, second and third world terminology comes from the USSR (CCCP in Russian) days. First world countries are the western countries you'd expect such as the United States, Canada, and Western European nations. Second world referred to the Soviet Union and its allies during the Cold War, encompassing Eastern European countries and some others aligned with communist ideology. Third world originally denoted countries unaligned with either bloc, often less economically developed nations in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.​

                  Thus it is not accurate to refer to developing nations as third world. In the past, traditionally third-world countries were often economically undeveloped but the world state is completely different now. The USSR is gone and we live in a globalized world.

                    The word "workstation" doesn't come to mind for boards like this that use platforms / CPUs with piddly PCIe lane counts and have one or two PCIe slots. This thing can do one slot at x16 or two at x8. Whenever PCIe 5 gpus land, you'll be looking at zero PCIe expansion possible while running your card at x16. I know I complain about this frequently, but I'd be happy to spend that much on a board if the overall platform offered the same bandwidth but laid out as 1 x16 PCIe 4.0, 1 x8 PCIe 4.0, and 2 x4 PCIe 4.0 slots. These consumer platforms suck for expansion.
