From what I heard, the Killer is still outdone by the Extreme6+. I'm waiting on the MSI G45 myself, but I've heard of issues with the 4th PCIe x1 slot.

edit: Ninja'd, lol.

A Crosshair would be perfect. From their forums though, ASUS doesn't feel that FM2+ is "viable enough" for a ROG-calibur board.

Look at this, I think they cheapened out the vrm's on the final production board.

AM3+ as a chipset is fine for the most part, unless you want native USB 3.0 and PCIe 3.0 (I think there was like, one AM3+ board that had PCIe 3.0). Besides that, it's possible for a new SR-based chip to arrive on the socket... The problem is that there's no evidence pointing towards such a processor existing.

Mantle is mostly about reducing API overheads and thus reducing CPU bottlenecks so you get more performance, and better performance with densely-threaded engines (beyond 4 cores). AMD probably theorized that with Mantle taking off (25+ Frostbite 3 games will support it, and we don't even know the other unannounced engines that will support it), they could ride out Piledriver even longer. We might see an AM3+ Vishera refresh utilizing the Piledriver+ cores we saw in Richland. Due to that, the weaker per-core performance of the current FX chips wouldn't hold back performance so much, so AMD probably sees it unnecessary to rush out a Steamroller-based replacement right now.

I don't necessarily agree with that, but that's just my theory.

quite a few already have USB 3.0

Hmm, guess I'll wait for some hands-on testimonies. Have no idea what board I'll be getting now for sure. The G43 looks nice, but I'm still looking around.

are they forgetting that they have the clout to push the envelope?

hell i'd be happy for them to break the mold and engineer something that would allow two 7850k's to work together in one system.. but i have a feeling that isn't possible unless AMD turns some more features on.

other they could be waiting for the unified socket. who knows.

on the other side tho, i can see where ROG is coming from with the not viable enough aspect.
they likely want to see better results from mantle and HSA before diving into the platform.

but mainly i think i just want an ASUS board that doesn't have a freaking gold color scheme.

Here's the link: http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?36194-ROG-FM2-A88X-plans/page2

But yeah, I agree. Every other board manufacturer put some of their top-tier style offerings on the FM2+ platform, I don't see why ROG couldn't be there. Sure, the Intel variants are higher-spec'd sometimes, but it's mostly just fancy marketing names and color schemes anyway.

unfortunately FM2+ cant do multi-socket as it doesn't have the HT lanes available, or at least I don't think it does, the chip itself does however, but at this point I'm not sure what AMD might be doing about multi-socket APU platforms...

I think at this point I would be happy with the ASUS A88X-Pro, but, like you, I don't fancy the gold scheme...

I don't think the inter connect would be too far out of ASUS's capabilities. They managed PCIe 3.0 on the sabertooth..

on the bright side, day off tomorrow and i finally got time to install my replacement kaveri.. hoping this one can atleast hold its clocks.
