Asus motherboard may be the first, but it’s aimed at the higher end of gaming: There’s a slot for a Core i7 processor, six DDR3 memory slots and three PCI-X 2.0 PCIe 2.0 slots. (thanks for the correction, calidan!) We’ll wait until the new protocol starts making it into mainstream consumer machines before we start ditching our old FireWire gear.
well, if track record is to be accounted for, we shouldnt expect too many revision. usb, in the past, isnt released until its ready. revisions are true updates, in bandwidth. consider 3.0 bandwidth is already 5gb/s or something like that, i think we can expect 3.0 to be the standard, not 3.1.
