Winmate explains the board is designed for “industrial automation, medical equipment, outdoor kiosks, in-vehicle automation, and areas requiring small-size adoption with stable computing performance”. Considering the company only provides support for Android 9.0 for the board, and the LVDS and eDP interfaces found on the board, it looks especially suited to industrial HMI touch panel PCs.
Snapdragon 660 was first announced in 2017, so Winmate IQ30 is not the first Snapdragon 660 SBC, and we previously covered Inforce 6560 Pico-ITX SBC, as well as Intrinsyc (now Lantronix) Open-Q 660 HDK.
Winmate did not provide availability nor pricing information for IQ30 SBC, but you may find a few more details on the product page, where you can ask for a “Quick Inquiry” to get pricing and/or availability information.

You missed the word Gold and Silver. Those two clusters are not only of the different clock speed, but also of different core architecture. Gold is for the big core and Silver is for the small core.
And noone has a clue what exactly gold and silver is…
