Reference designs don't seem that useful, but maybe the big names design their own boards.

Intel will exit the motherboard market

No, but as PJP pointed out, Intel reference design used to shape the market, at least of Intel CPU motherboards, so maybe you have had one based on them. Not so much now maybe, and in any case people are starting to choose ARM devices which will split the market even more.

Well, that's disappointing. Had great luck with intel boards. Other manufacturers always seem to have issues with their boards.

They're going to continue reference design efforts, but it sounds like it will be more in he finished product space rather than individual component space.
