It could be that this is just an OEM part and not part of the final line up for customers, who knows, we will have to wait and see.Special bios for some novel unnamed feature?
Or maybe just a driver lock to bioses that say they are the required hardware because arbitrary reasons agreed upon at some meeting.
I would have bought one of these to play with. At the very least for Intel's good display support, and the fanless version makes it even more attractive. But if Intel is driver locking it, I guess not.
Trying to break into a competitive market by locking out most potential customers apparently to help sales of products not helped by exclusivity to a low end gpu sounds like a strategic blunder.
Edit: maybe they only plan to make a few and are limiting distribution to only promotional purposes.
