Generally better VRMs, more reliable overclocking.  Some X boards support SLI and more sata ports, but not all.

I would compare board to board rather than chipset to chipset.

I thought B350 did support multiple GPUs, just not through SLI.

I think so too.  Crossfire doesn't really rely on the motherboard's features the same way SLI does.  Generally as long as it's got two PCIe slots it can do CF.

The differences vary by which board you're talking about. For example, the B350 Pro4 is identical to the X370 Pro4. But the B350-F is completely different from the X370-F. Some X470 boards are upgrades from X370 boards.

Then why would they say no multi-GPU support....

From the article linked above here's AMD statement on that

 

“Only AMD’s X370 and X300 chipsets [and now X470—ed.] support two PCIe 3.0 x8 graphics card slots with direct access to the processor. If multi-GPU setups are used on other socket AM4 chipsets, they will not have the same PCIe 3.0 bandwidth, and those configurations are not officially supported.”
