Looks kind of like a slightly stripped-down Phantom Gaming 4, also in the same vein as the ASRock Z170 Pro4S boards, of which I still own two of those, they were and are reliable boards. Basic, but reliable.
Unfortunately, unlike most other X570 boards, there doesn't appear to be a BIOS-flash button that works in conjunction with a USB port and a power supply. Something that is indeed nearly invaluable in the modern AM4 era. But at a $139.99 MSRP, I guess it's understandable that it would be left out. My guess is that this board may go cheaper "on sale", and thus be an industry-wide X570 somewhat "loss leader"-type board. (I think I paid roughly $80 ea., for my Z170 Pro4S ATX boards.)
It does appear to have 8 SATA6G ports, so it could serve as a cheap home-server / unRAID board for AM4.
