Unearthed by Linus Tech Tips, this B150 motherboard has not only an LGA 1151 socket but also an embedded NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. The sort of micro ATX board also has I/O on all four sides and more SATA connections than you could shake a stick at.
Alex Alderson,

Zeal-All may be a motherboard manufacturer with which you are unfamiliar. Featured by Linus Tech Tips and Tom's Hardware  the Shenzhen-based company sells a bunch of motherboards including ones with embedded dedicated GPUs.

Based on the B150 chipset, the ZA-SK1050 is one of two motherboards that Zeal-All sells with an embedded GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. Featuring 4 GB of VRAM, the 235 x 197.5 mm board roughly fits the microATX form factor. However, it has no mounting holes, no PCIe Express expansion slots and has I/O on all four sides.

Additionally, the ZA-SK1050 has an LGA 1151 socket, meaning that it supports 6th and 7th generation Intel Core processors. It also has two SO-DIMM slots that support up to DDR4-2133 RAM. The board also has a 19 V DC power input, four USB 3.0 Type-C ports, an RJ45, a CMOS button and several SATA connections.

Shown to run CS GO smoothly, the ZA-SK1050 currently costs a pricey US$345 to US$365 on Alibaba. The ZA-SK1050 is certainly niche and probably of little practical to use to most people, but it is quirky nonetheless.
