Thanks for the news!

Honestly, i think that the USB 3.0 interface with 5Gb/s will suffice and it is pointless to use 10Gb/s connection for the SATA3 (Max) 6Gb/s.

Nope. Look at the diagram again. That motherboard is dependent on CPUs with integrated graphics. Unless the big two ship cards with Thunderbolt ports, you won't be doing NV Surround or Eyefinity over Thunderbolt.

Of course, the cards could be made to detect on-board Thunderbolt and redirect their display through those ports, but that would mean sending video data back across the PCIe fabric, which would hurt the performance unless the motherboard is PCIe 3.0.

Nice, as usual Gigabyte continues to produce innovative products, and at least this time they used better looking heatsinks on their boards, because their previous Z77 boards looked really ugly.
