    Actually we've got the Front Base (shown off at Computex) coming for non-OC-centric boards. It's got more functions for gamers.

    Intel NIC and A88X are a given.
    802.11ac wireless is a maybe, depending on cost. AMD boards simply can't charge the same premiums as Intel.

    Ok cool, but i'd mentioned full 8 SATA 3 native connections, I saw that the Bolton D4 FCH can make use of 8 SATA 3 ports...on the A88XM-A page on the ASUS website

    ok no worries, if not i'll just have to buy a PCE-AC66 card

    Oh and one more request: ALL BLACK PLEASE!! Currently already have a theme planned out(Black and Blue) and most of the parts already for it, an all black board would be awesome and fit the theme perfectly

    No harm in asking for a black edition, probably won't happen, but I asked

    Well, for now it looks like there will be no ROG FM2+ board. Please note: I am saying "for now" obviously I don't work for ASUS nor ASUS ROG and am unable to say much except for speculation based what I read and here is the latest I have read:

    Taken from here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...2223541&type=1

    ASUS Launches Five Motherboards with Socket FM2+ for New AMD APUs
    Exclusive Dual Intelligent Processors 4 with 4-Way Optimization and the Upgraded GPU Boost technologies speed up integrated graphics performance of "any APU" by up to 30%

    Taipei, Taiwan (11 September, 2013) — ASUS today announced A88X-PRO, A88X-PLUS, A88XM-PLUS, A55BM-PLUS and A55BM-E motherboards for AMD Socket FM2+ APUs (Accelerated Processing Units).
    The new ASUS motherboard range provides PC builders with the choice needed to create a computer that’s perfect for their requirements and budget – and with exclusive tools that allow them to unleash the full power of the latest Socket FM2+ ‘Kaveri’ APUs.
    Retaining compatibility with existing AMD Socket FM2 (Richland and Trinity) APUs, A88X-PRO, A88X-PLUS, A88XM-PLUS, A55BM-PLUS and A55BM-E motherboards accommodate the latest AMD Kaveri APUs that support Microsoft® DirectX 11.1 for incredibly fast and smooth graphics and native PCI Express 3.0 support for full-speed expansion. With Socket FM2+ APUs, the new ASUS motherboards also offer native support for 4K resolutions via HDMI and DisplayPort connections, enabling use of displays with ultra-high definition (UHD) resolutions of 3840 x 2160 pixels and beyond.

    Better APU performance — only from ASUS
    The ASUS A88X-PRO, A88X-PLUS, A88XM-PLUS, A55BM-PLUS and A55BM-E motherboards sees renowned ASUS Dual Intelligent Processors 4 with 4-Way Optimization technology arrive on the AMD platform. This is an easy-to-use tuning tool that dynamically adjusts ASUS TPU (TurboV Processing Unit), EPU (Energy Processing Unit), DIGI+ Power Control and Fan Xpert 2 technologies to enhance performance, reduce noise and increase efficiency — all with a single click

    Exclusive Upgraded ASUS GPU Boost technology is able to unlock any APU for integrated graphics overclocking, even the non-Black Edition APUs can be boosted for an instant performance increase of up to 30%.

    Cutting-edge technologies, exclusive abilities, total reliability
    The ASUS A88X-PRO, A88X-PLUS, A88XM-PLUS, A55BM-PLUS and A55BM-E motherboards include many other cutting-edge technologies that consumers have come to expect from ASUS. 5X Protection technology safeguards sensitive components from short-circuits, electrical surges and similar risks. Specifically, 5X Protection includes ASUS DIGI+ VRM (voltage-regulator module) to ensure a smooth power supply to the processor, over-current protection to prevent short circuits damaging the RAM, electrostatic-discharge (ESD) guards and corrosion-resistant input/output (I/O) shields – a combination of technologies that provide the very best reliability and durability.

    USB 3.0 Boost with UASP Mode accelerates the already-fast speed of USB 3.0, intelligently optimizing transfer commands so that more data can be sent and received in shorter times than is possible with other motherboards. The new ASUS motherboards also include a brilliantly easy-to-use UEFI BIOS that presents a friendly graphical interface, allowing users to set up shortcuts and favorites for quick access to the options that are used most often.

    That's nice, I'm not hold my breath for Asus to give us AMD People any more than 1/2 of what other Manufacturers give and then make us pay almost double just because of a Logo and a Name. I used to think Asus meant something but now I'm not sure anymore. I'm starting to look at my next Build and I'm not sure it's going to be Asus but it's going to be an FM2+ Based System and looking really hard at the new APU's.

    Well Some news that MarshallR left out along with MYK, is that the new Kaveri Chips feature PCI-E 3.0! and as listed in Asus's site about it:

    Also From Gigabyte the G1.Sniper A88X Board which features Dual Bios, USB DAC-UP, Audio Amp, Upgradable Audio Op-Amp, and USB Fuse Protection all of which Asus conveniently left out of MOST of their Products dealing with AMD Owners

    Like I stated in the above post, I'm not sure when I build my next system whether I'm going Asus or not because I still feel Asus Can and Should do better for the Cost we have to pay for their products, ROG or Otherwise.

    What I would like to see is a lot more wireless functionality included in all ROG boards. NFC, Bluetooth, Wifi. NFC particularly, because it is a standard in most modern smartphones, besides the iPhone. Also include TPM for encryption, as my Crosshair V lacks it. Only USB 3.0 ports, isnt about that time to make the switch? Add ASUS' AI Cloud/VPN support (n66u) so I can allow remote access to my LAN. Add a second ethernet port (as you claim to the be supreme), be supreme for LAN parties, so I can make this essentially run as a freaking server that I can connect directly into a router or network switch. Also more than one external sata port.
