Default No more desktop chipsets are coming from Intel this year?

If you’ve been considering buying a new computer, or at least building your own, you might’ve noticed two features that pretty much every motherboard manufacturer out there is touting at the moment - USB 3.0 and SATA3 6Gbps. Currently both of these features are being implemented by third-party chipsets from NEC and Marvell. However, AMD is getting ready to add full SATA3 6Gbps support to all six SATA ports on its upcoming SB850 southbridge.

Intel has no plans on adding any of these features to its chipset line-up this year and although SATA3 6Gbps is penciled in on the roadmap for 2011 we’re hearing that Intel isn’t exactly planning on going down the same route as AMD. We’re not sure if the implementation we’ve been told about is limited to only some chipsets or not, but according to our source, Intel will be offering only a single native SATA3 6Gbps port.
