    Was it just my imagination or did Vega 64 LC with TR actually provide same or better gaming results vs Intel + 1080ti?

    Wouldn't incompatibility with Z270 hurt adoption rates for new chips and make people delay buying either a new CPU or a new mobo unless they had to? Or does Intel make money directly from board sales somehow to make up for that?

    There is no doubt about that, even they have their own boards are coming soon.

    That would explain it. Though I still think it will hurt more than help to incentivize people to hold off on upgrades because of additional overhead.

    My personal opinion,
    Not only the upgrade market, even for those who are seeking the new laptops (including myself) will be effected as well, we will see the new motherboards will come to the DTR industry as well, no one should buy until the picture will be more clear within the last 2017 quarter up to the 1st quarter of 2018.

    My opinion is if your current one is dead it's not a terrible time to buy, because everything out now works pretty well, but if you're upgrading a working machine it's probably better to wait and see.

    Definitely wouldn't spend that much on a mobo but that's pretty cool.
