First Apollo Lake motherboard

It's finally here, and against all odds it's not a mini-ITX board. The J3455M-E from ASUS is a mATX motherboard featuring the mid-range Celeron J3455, a quad-core Apollo Lake wonder. With a 10W TDP and 12 Skylake-derived execution units, the new chip will offer substantial performance improvements over Braswell.

"This motherboard features an integrated Intel Celeron® Quad-Core Processor J3455 and Intel HD Graphics. This revolutionary 14nm ultra low voltage SoC (System On a Chip) combines superb processing power and advanced HD graphics support in one small, energy efficient design. Despite minimal power requirements, it still has the processing power to display the latest DirectX® 12 HD graphics. It features support for 4K/UHD (ultra-high-definition) resolutions of up to 3840 x 2160, and also has integrated USB 3.0 support."
