Intel is finally getting ready to add native USB 3.0 support
IT'S HARD TO be spot on when it comes to rumours about new technology coming from the various companies in the business, but nearly a year ago we wrote about Intel working on a USB 3.0 solution of its own, well, it seems like it didn't quite work out the way we were told by our source back then, but Intel is finally getting ready to add native USB 3.0 support. That said, it won't arrive until early 2012 alongside Intel's next generation platform (didn't that just launch?)
So what we're talking about here is native chipset support for the Ivy Bridge platform, more specifically the Panther Point chipset, of which we, currently, know very little about. What is surprising is that Intel will only add support for four ports worth of USB 3.0 connectivity, while the remaining 10 USB ports will be of the 2.0 variety. This is identical to what we're hearing AMD is going to be offering for its next generation high-end consumer platform, although AMD has co-developed its solution with Renesas.
