Asus, Gigabyte mull cheaper USB 3.0 mobos
Could USB 3.0-enabled motherboards soon wander into the lower echelons of the market? Yes, suggests DigiTimes. The site relays an Apple Daily story that says both Asus and Gigabyte are considering the addition of USB 3.0 connectivity to their "mid-range and entry-level motherboards."
Now, mobos with those shiny blue ports can already be had at pretty reasonable pricesójust take Gigabyte's GA-770TA-UD3, which delivers both USB 3.0 and 6Gbps Serial ATA for only $94.99 at Newegg. But with anything cheaper, especially something like this $55 ECS mobo, you'll be lucky to get a decent number of old-fashioned USB 2.0 ports.
