Is Lenovo planning to enter the DIY motherboard market? Neowin speculates a couple of images posted by Weibo user "WolStame" suggest the Chinese PC maker may be preparing to sell standalone versions of its motherboards. The first image shows the new Legion Blade 7000 pre-built gaming PC's motherboard (left) with its predecessor on the right.

The new motherboard looks surprisingly well made and offers a feature set comparable to today's mid- to high-end motherboards:
  • Four memory DIMM slots,
  • 8+2 power delivery system,
  • Heatsinks covering the VRMs, PCH and PCIe regions.
  • 3x M.2 slots (Two for SSD, One for Network Card),
  • 5.1 Channel Audio Output.
  • USB-C interface
  • I'm not entirely sure this will happen though, especially not a global launch, but it remains an interesting find.
