Default Intel Responds to AMD, NVIDIA USB 3.0 Allegations

Knupffer points out that Intel is not developing the USB 3.0 specification. What Intel is developing is the host controller spec which Knupffer describes as a “Dummies Guide” to building a USB 3.0 compatible piece of silicon.

Knupffer says in the blog post that Intel has invested “gazillions of dollars and bazillions of engineering man hours” in developing the open host controller and despite its significant investment still plans to give the specification to competing manufacturers for free. Knupffer also says that Intel loves it when CPU performance is used to the max and the huge increase in bandwidth of USB 3.0 will mean larger file transfers and more processor usage. This in turn is expected to lead to an increased demand for faster processors.

I love Firewire for its fast transfer and minimal CPU usage, and it's passthrough system is very well thought out and works very well. Boooooooo USB

Firewire has licensing costs though, big reason why Firewire 800 didn't catch on in motherboards was due to the at the time significantly higher licensing costs above Firewire 400 chips.

that's so sad, as they are cutting in their own profits by increasing licensing costs
