990 is more forward proof + sli support vs 890 limited support. In the end it just looks like there making the platform to offer more options, know there was lots of users whom wanted to buy a amd system but cause of lack of sli support they went intel insted.
Hopefully this just helps/benefits us the consumer in general for example that sponsor deal I see there ... Gigabyte Z68x board $189 vs the 990fxa-ud5 on preorder from ncix for $199 ... say ya got a AM3 cpu based build, you gonna buy the intel board & new cpu or buy the am3+ board insted ...
