Hopefully with AMD stating that they will continue the AM3+ platform into 2015 we may just get to see the AM3+ incarnation, I know when I spoke to Gigabyte they were all hush hush about it... so fingers crossed.

hopefully its within 95% of the raw performance of the bigger brothers, and signalling the end of mid level boards in the 150+ price bracket, especially for intel based boards.

so whats really missing, sure a couple of sata connections, meh

i guess it all comes down the the overclocking potential.. hopefully its decent. cant wait for the following review.

for that price is sort of makes my Gd55 z77 board look like crap in both looks and price...

Board looks very sexy with a dark mate black pcb.

For £116 it looks great, I'm happy with the G1. Sniper M5 and this comes in even cheaper, not a bad little budget board!
