About time. It's no coincidence that AMD made USB3 announcement earlier this week and Intel follows. It's a shame it's taking this long for Superspeed to get rolled out.

Yeah, it took a while for 1.1 & 2.0 to get implemented, but those were substantial upgrades in an uncertain market. The market demand for 480MB/s is clear, and the standard hasn't changed that much that a bunch of engineers can't solve the differences.

USB 3.0 should be great once it goes mainstream, however i doubt the normal user cares or knows the difference

Lets cut the BS Intel, you're procrastinating to push your Light Peak technology now called by that horrible Thunderbolt name (guy who came up with that should be fired). You're not fooling anyone when USB 3.0 was pretty much finalized back at the very end of 2009 when you say it'll take at least 2-3 years to fully implement in your chipsets.

Yay! Superspeed and Thunderbolt!

...wait...

Will these systems be too fast? I mean c'mon, with all the fast-sounding names, they've gotta be too fast for us. lol

That does make me wonder if we'll have bottlenecks like we had with the 1156/155 sockets. Granted most of the new stuff will likely be moved over to chipset and avoid using PCI-E lanes, but how much bandwidth will you have for these devices?

Eh, who knows.

So basically Intel should hang a banner saying they were stupid 2 years ago to outright reject putting USB3 in their chipsets. Foot meet mouth.

Ivy Bridge will make AMD's products look worse than today. Hopefully, 2012 is the year when Intel finish AMD and put it in the toilet.

My last AMD system was a cutting edge brand new blazing 1.6GHz solo core, ha.
My money may be on Intel these days for my gaming rig, but I intend to build a HTPC sometime in the near future, and it will be AMD. Intel does make some nice powerful chips, but when you want something cheap, all they offer basically is that damned Atom, and I would use my Pentium D again before using one of those chips.
2.5GHz quad core with a 5770 1GB and 4GB RAM sounds pretty nice and cheap to me (especially since I have a unused 5770) as a budget secondary PC and HTPC.

Time has come & we now here this,but should they just keep on doing their lab tests to perfect their product before they bring it out...Remember the faulty Cougar Point chipset problems on their mainboards & the returns that had to be made...Also quite a lot of pc shop front stores that I went to told me that they could not care less if the chipsets do not work...They also said that if you buy their faulty chipset mainboards that don't worry about bringing it back,just use it & do good by buying more from us,to which I replied "Get Lost" & I spat on their faces...These stores were MSY auburn,sydney,Australia...Techbuy also done this,but was more of a smart arse to me...Also that PC DIY that I mentioned earlier that would take back motherboards,did not take it back & told me to go some where else...Also beware of DD Computers at south strathfield,they do not like taking back even faulty hardware parts & tell you to go some where else also...

About time USB 3.0 will be properly backed by Intel's own. I also hope that intel's USB 3.0 won't be like the faulty cougar chipset fiasco that we all seen and heard about early on in the year.
