The State of USB 3.0: USB 3.0 and SATA 6.0

USB 3.0 has been quite an interesting topic these days. Intel who was once going to begin supporting USB 3.0 in early 2010, decided to push support back to sometime in 2011. Since then, it was thought that the smaller companies would hold off too. That has not been the case.
Asus has released details of a USB 3.0 motherboard coming out “soon.” Additionally, Asus has also detailed the release of their own USB3.0 / SATA 6.0 PCI-Express Card that will be available for $60.00.
There you have it… USB 3.0 is coming, and it is gaining momentum. I believe that Intel will have to reconsider it’s stance to push back support for the technology if they want to stay competitive.
