What is the difference between industrial motherboards and commercial motherboards?

Hi everyone, I am a novice. I am a little confused about the motherboard, I hope someone can answer.
What is the difference between a commercial motherboard and an industrial motherboard? What is so good about industrial motherboards? What's the good thing? Why is the price of industrial motherboards higher than commercial motherboards?

Welcome to SPCR.

Not sure what you mean by "industrial" motherboard. There are some motherboards that serve industrial needs - like still providing a serial port or maybe supporting an extended temperature range.

I think some people call it military, but more people call it industrial. I don't know the specifics. I am very sorry for making you confused.

I would suggest that "Industrial" motherboards are specially designed for a specific purpose. Should use non-standard form factor and a very specific equipment/features for its intended use.
