Looking for AMD motherboard with 3x PCI-E 3.0 support. The best will be if all three are x16.

there's rly no motherboard that can handle 3 x16 PCI-E 3.0, the most is 2 x16 PCI-E 3.0 w/ 1 x8.

AMD's best is the ASUS 990FX Sabertooth Gen3 R2.0 which has 2 x16 PCI-E 3.0. This is a limited production mobo which only work in PCI-E 3.0 and only the Vishera/Piledriver CPU will support it.

And even at that the performance difference is not enough to even worry about it. PCI-E 3.0 is a good step foreword but even running a HD 7xxx or 6xx cards on a PCI-E x16 ver2 will not see much if any performance degrade over running on ver. 3. If you already have a good quality AM3+ board I would not worry about it.

It will be a test server with radeon sky 700, firepro w8000 GPU's, and these cards capable to use pci-e 3.0 so this is why I looking for new motherboards.

One more question! How is it capable to support pci-e 3.0 cards, if the motherboard chipset is this:

This is only PCI-e 2.0, and i read only the slot is pci-e 3.0, but the north bridge is still 2.0. If it's true, it just a half solution.
