Would've thought it'd be time that PCIE 3.0 slots start featuring on AMD boards. I know that is based on the chipset used but all new graphics cards now will be PCIE 3.0, and not using that means they're immediately out of date.

Seems like high end boards are more of a statement to make rather than have that much of an impact upon performance.
