ASUS Leads the Way for True USB 3.0 Integration in Complete Product Line
ASUS Leads the Way for True USB 3.0 Integration in Complete Product Line

The introduction of USB 3.0 heralds a new age of faster than ever connectivity to benefit consumers in a reality of massive high definition content. Seeing this evolution coming, ASUS has been the first to ready and launch an entire lineup of products that truly incorporate USB 3.0 in their designs, making the most of its new features.

ASUS was the first to include USB 3.0 on a motherboard, offering the new technology not just as-is, but optimized to realize its potential. Based on world-acclaimed motherboard design expertise, ASUS has been able to quickly move on integrating USB 3.0 so that consumers may take advantage of it without delays and the teething problems associated with generic, after a fashion designs.

One result of the intense efforts ASUS has put into building a roster of USB 3.0-ready products is the unique PCIe x4 bridge chip, designed from the ground up to enable true USB 3.0 performance levels without compromise. This has resulted in blistering fast performance that outstrips other solutions by as much as 74.38%*.

ASUS has extended USB 3.0 implementation to a full range of motherboards, from the mainstream to the hardcore enthusiast. To ensure backward compatibility and protect the investment of existing consumers, ASUS has even developed a standalone PCIe x4 card solution to offer USB 3.0 on previously-released motherboard models.

The P6X58D Premium motherboard by ASUS is also the first to be officially certified by the USB Implementation Forum (USB-IF) as achieving the standard’s newly-formulated SuperSpeed USB compliance requirements.

USB 3.0 here to stay

The availability of super fast data transfer to consumers is not a gimmick; it is the way of the future and a means to providing better technology to people around the world. Knowing this, ASUS now offers USB 3.0 on a wide range of products beyond motherboards. This includes notebooks, the Eee PC range of netbooks, all-in-one PCs and even digital media players. All of these feature designs specifically tailored to accommodate USB 3.0 connectivity so that its true benefits are available in full.

In this, too, ASUS is first, offering far reaching coverage of different product segments. While for many USB 3.0 remains a novelty confined to ultra-pricey offerings, ASUS believes every product that can be designed to optimize its performance must include the new standard.

Speaking about the innovative move of introducing USB 3.0 in as many product lines as possible, ASUS CEO Jerry Shen said:

“We are the first in the world to introduce USB 3.0 through our notebooks, namely the multimedia N Series. We’re also the first to win USB-IF certification, achieved on our P6X58D premium motherboard. We believe that USB 3.0 has a pivotal role to play in delivering the ultimate experience to a new generation of multimedia-savvy users. With USB 3.0, everyone can enjoy fast data backup and ultra-speedy file sharing.”
