Does anyone know which AMD chipset motherboards support PCIe 3.0 or when this new gen will be supported? New Radeon are PCIe 3.0 and AMD motherboards cannot fully support it?

PCIe 3.0 should be supported with the next AMD chipset, which should be released with Steamroller later this year.

II love my ASUS Sabertooth 990FX. It is a great mobo. Of coarse I have the first one so it does not have the PCIe 3.0

I prefer the Tuf series over the RoG series. I wish they would make a microATX the AMD side of the Tuf series. Sort of like the Grypon Z87 but for AM3+. I would buy one in a hartbeat.

I have been wondering myself, mind you I am not even close to saturating my current slots

I am more interested in more x16 slots, all of them x16, and more flexibity in placing video cards so that in a 2-way vs a 3-way can be easier

I also like USB 3.0 for disks, so I want more USB 3.0 as it means less power cords.

not sure what to do about the cpu and main memory which is still bottlenecked bad
