MSI tease an upcoming X299 motherboard

Computex is coming and with it will come numerous hardware reveals. Right now it is expected that Intel will release their X299/Skylake-X series of CPUs and motherboards at the event, which means that we should soon be seeing a lot of new X299 motherboards.  
MSI has not revealed what looks like an X299 motherboard, which comes with 4 reinforced PCIe 3.0 slots and 3 usable M.2 slots. At this time it is unknown how Skylake-X's PCIe bandwidth/resources will be utilised, though it is expected that all of these M.2 slots will be usable with 4x PCIe 3.0 bandwidth when used in a supported configuration.  
This motherboard is clearly part of an HPDT (High-Performance Desktop) platform, as both Intel's Z270 and AMD's X370 motherboard chipsets do not have enough PCIe resources to support this kind of PCIe configuration.

MSI calls this new the "ultimate" motherboard and says that it will "set new standards" with its feature set.
