All I know that there are a lot of AMD users that would like to see AMD CPU boards with SLI support and new tech like USB3 and SATA6GB
SLi support isn't exactly AMD's fault.
As for USB 3 and SATA 3, all boards made with the SB850 (only one future board will not have it) will have native SATA 3. USB 3 won't be integrated until at least the next SB refresh. Le sigh.
