Optane is useless unless you're using an old school spinning hard drive. ssds are fast enough and optane is too expensive at user friendly sizes(1tb and up) to be practical
optane is dead in the water for user side implementation. only good for server farms with old school HDD so makes sense that asus didn't bother implementing it

Motherboards in the two photos all have an IO cover. That piece that covers the input/output connections. Makes the motherboard look clean. An example of a mATX with a IO cover would be the MSI Z270M MORTAR.

All the major mobo makers (ASUS, MSI and Gigabyte) seem to be going backwards on Thunderbolt 3 (most Gigabyte Z370 mobo's sport a Thunderbolt 3 AIC port) from their Z170 and Z270 offering with no native ports on the back panel. Seems strange since a few months ago there were so many stories about Intel pushing Thunderbolt by making it licensing free.
