Colorful is designing its first socket AM4 motherboards, according to industry sources. The company will release its first socket AM4 motherboards after the 2018 Computex Expo (June). These boards will be based on AMD 400-series chipsets, and will come with out of the box support for Ryzen "Pinnacle Ridge" processors, Ryzen "Raven Ridge" APUs, and existing Ryzen "Summit Ridge" processors. Taking advantage of PCI-Express gen 3.0 general-purpose connectivity of the 400-series chipset, the boards will feature multiple 32 Gbps NVMe interfaces (M.2 or U.2). It's possible that the company could attach its coveted iGame Vulcan brand to some of these models. The company currently only sells motherboards for Intel platforms. Its lineup includes motherboards based on Intel Z370 and X299 chipsets, including crypto-currency miner-centric boards based on lesser Intel chipsets, such as the B250. AMD is expected to debut its 400-series chipset alongside its 2nd generation Ryzen "Pinnacle Ridge" processors, in Q2-2018.

Generally Amd boards and Intel boards are very similar looking(layout and aesthetic) in same year from Manufacturers. You can expect Amd 400 series of boards from colourful to look very similar to their Intel 300 series of boards.

Has anyone here ever bought any board made by Colorful? I don't see any listed for sale except their mining board on Amazon (currently unavailable), and none at all on Newegg. They've had Intel boards since Z170, but their website looks dodgy (support page still under construction). Must be a mostly Asian brand.
