Our eyes and ears over at CES 2017 have managed to give us a sneak peak as some of MSI's upcoming AM4 series motherboards, which come ready for AMD's Ryzen CPUs and Bristol Ridge APUs with support for DDR4 memory, PCIe 3.0 and many modern features like M.2/U.2 support and USB 3.1.  

  

Right now AMD has not announced when Ryzen will hit the market, though they are expected to launch within the next few weeks or months, bringing a new eight-core AMD CPU to the market with 16-threads and performance per clock that is similar to current Intel offering.

We can see above MSI's X370 Gaming Titanium, with a beefy overclocking ready power design with large heatsinks and 8+4pin CPU power. This motherboard comes with MSI's reinforced DDR4 DIMM slots and PCIe slots, with dual M.2 slots and USB 3.1 front header at the base of the motherboard. 

This will be the first MSI Gaming Titanium series AMD motherboard, bringing a modern enthusiast-grade overclocking motherboard to AMD's lineup, offering monumental upgrades when compared to AMD's aging AM3+ lineup.

Both above and below we see MSI's lower end B350 series motherboard, which comes with one of AMD's lower-end AM4 chipsets but still boasts a boatload of features like M.2 support and VR-ready USB ports. 

Judging by this motherboard's large heatsink it seems that this motherboard will be overclocking ready, though at this time we do not know it AMD plans on locking overclocking to just their flagship X370 chipset.

We expect to hear and see more from AMD and other motherboard manufacturers as CES continues, especially at AMD's live event at 2pm GMT tomorrow, where AMD are expected to officially announce their Vega lineup of GPUs.

Finally some proper AM4 info that isn't just leaks and rumors. I hope to see some mATX boards and not just ATX otherwise that's my upgrade on hold even more.

One thing I do want to see sorted out is this whole cooler nonsense because I swear AMD said before that AM3 coolers would be compatible with AM4 then I saw the article on here with both backplates measured and AM4's was a bit differentQuote

I'm glad we actually have proper info, but I'm not glad that it's ugly! The Titanium is preference, but to me it's meh. The other board tho... Good lord it's just ugly.Quote
