If only there was a VISION D microATX board with TB3 certification.

Yeah... Also, GB skipped the USB C front header on almost all B550 boards and that one is not an exception.

Then I got good news for you. Gigabyte has four new boards on their website: Elite V2, Elite AX V2, Pro V2 and Pro AX (replacement for Elite, Elite AX, Pro and Pro AC) and they all have headers for front USB-C (but only 5Gb/s). See here.

Good for them. Still no mATX though... Is someone wants an mATX Ryzen mobo with all the goodies (wifi, usb c, good cooling...) then there's only MSI B550M Mortar WiFi.

I like how Gigabyte "re-discovered" finned radiators and started using those on VRM, but... again - only on high-end ATX and mobos for TR.

True.
mATX seems to miss the love for some reason, it's easier to get any other size board with the lot.

I completely understand why ATX would get more attention, mainly because the majority of the market uses standard ATX cases, but for those who have microATX cases (like my Thermaltake cubes) it's kind of hard finding full-featured motherboards just without the extra PCI-E slots. I'd go with that ASRock X570 ITX that is also TB3-certified board, but I do need that one extra PCI-E x1 slot that microATX still has.

ATX still holding strong is super weird. Rarely anyone would need more than 1 PCIe 16x slot (for GPU), which means ITX would be completely sufficient. Occasionally You can find someone using a separate sound card, but then mATX is more than enough. Yet ATX holds the biggest cake slice in the whole mobo market, even though people really in need of all those slots are just a miniscule part of all the customer base.
