I don't believe you will see any differance since the 8x bus is not yet saturated. It's a selling point for future use.

The older A8N series when running SLi had to split the PCIe bus down to x8 for each GPU due to the limited number of Lanes. The A8N32 has to PCIe bus which allow for each GPU to recieve x16, the differnence under todays games / apps is minimal.

What the new MB has over the older ones is better OC BIOS and a higher speed for memory when running CPC 1T.
