    I know this has been discussed before to a certain extent, but I haven't seen any threads focused purely on this - especially now after the Ryzen reveal. My thought:

    Motherboards are just as big of a hindrance to X99 (/X299) adoption as CPUs are. From a quick look at Newegg, Z170 boards start at ~$80, while X99 starts at $150, and by page 2 of the X99 section you're at $250 or more - a price it takes twice the number of motherboards to reach for Z170.

    In other words, not only is the base...
