No USB 3.0 chipset integrated into Intel until 2011

A sad news, NVIDIA has confirmed that no Intel chipset will come with USB 3.0 support until 2011, ie we will spend the 2010 without official support integrated chipsets from Intel.

This does not mean at all that we will be without USB 3.0 for a year, no, what he means is that manufacturers of motherboards and notebook makers will have to add a controller chip as its base plates extra cost, it is expected that manufacturers Intel, USB as a company that develops, integrates the control directly on its chipset.

In the words of Brian Burke of NVIDIA:

We learned that Intel is delaying the introduction of USB 3 until 2011. Without competition in chipsets, it seems that Intel has decided that innovation in USB is not necessary in a short amount of time.

With no one to push Intel to innovate, PC enthusiasts stick with Intel chipsets and the features and performance they offer, or the lack thereof.”

So much in fact moved motherboards is that they will have to cost a bit more for the price of the driver you choose to include, it is nothing that triggers the manufacturing price, but in 2010 managed to give Intel chipset with this feature already included, would be cheaper.
