    i am planning of buy X570 Phantom Gaming-ITX/TB3 around blackfriedy but this motherboard has strange choices in it design

    1- no front type c on premium board in 2019!
    2- thunderbolt 3 and m.2 both go through the chipset even though there is a detected nvme lanes in the cpu !!! (at least according to this photo

    i can understand a single m.2 slots since there is thunderbolt 3 port (main selling point for me) but being both on the same x4 lanes i dont understand ?
