Motherboard Design Ideas

I was wondering if we're going to have EITX and EmATX (even though that five-letter word sounds bad)...

For both Motherboard designs it could give some extra room, like that ITX x299 Motherboard, but we can just put four normal sticks.

Umm, maybe I've miss understood the concept/ idea of this, but wouldn't an EITX just be a mATX? and an EmATX just be an ATX??? If they weren't a sized just a little differently, wouldn't cases have to redesign all their cases for these motherboard sizes? So the corners and all can match up?

EATX Motherboards take over an entire case that supports it, right? EITX and EmATX are exactly the same This allows Motherboards to be installed into cases so they'll be across all over - or stretched.

So for more ram slots? I'm guessing that's why you'd lengthen it. I mean, I'm just wondering what's different about a, say EmATX board vs an ATX board?

Edit: let me rephrase, so basically, keep the board shorter with less pcie slots than an atx, but have more room for more ram slots?

RAM slots, perhaps two M.2 slots on an ITX (not like one in front and one in back), and on the mATX maybe more PCI-e.

Maybe like 5 GPU’s

That's another E - to the EATX
