Its strange to me too,but i think the reason is they want to sell more USB 3.0 motherboards

Not hear sorry, i read on this site on one thread. Owner on the mobo with USB3 say, when he have pluget something in USB3, his Graphic Card go slowly.
And it's posible, this is first mobo with USB3 and SATA3. So, maybe have a foult.

Whatever i don't have HDD with SATA3 and i will wait for my mobo with USB3 and SATA3. Sorry for bad English...

Well there are always satisfied and dissatisfied users with a board but in the reviews i read about USB 3.0 motherboards i didn't see anything like this.
Also do you know what he/she plugged in the USB 3.0 port which made the graphic card to run slowly ? because USB 3.0 devices are still few(like some external HDDs)

What he means by the graphics card getting slower with USB3/SATA3 is what Tom's outlined in their articles on the P55 mobos:

For Asus Motherboards, 1 video card will run at 16x speed if you use USB3/SATA3. If you use 2 video cards, they will run at 8x each, if you use USB3/SATA3 (if I remember correctly).

For Gigabyte Motherboards, 1 video card will run at 8x speed if you use USB3/SATA3. Can't remember about Crossfire.
