Many enthusiasts cannot settle without using the very best of everything. For an AMD/ATI enthusiast this would be full 16x CrossFire. The benefits of 16x CrossFire are not big at all, but that is something you just can't tell a hardcore AMD/ATI enthusiast, it makes them angry. As of right now, AMD has only released the 890 GX chipset which only supports 8x CrossFire. If you simply can't wait for the 890 FX chipset and want 16x CrossFire, Gigabyte's 790FXTA-UD5 is about as good as it gets.
This motherboard adds USB 3 and SATA 6 GB/s support. These are the same features that you will find on many of the 890 boards, so if the SB850 doesn't sound appealing to you then there is no big loss going with this board instead. However, if you plan on picking up the new AMD 6 core CPU, this board may not have support for it. You might be better off going the safe route with a 890 motherboard ensuring AMD hexcore compatibility.
