Why doesn't Intel motherboards have more SATA 6Gb/s ports?

Been looking around and AMD motherboards have more SATA 6Gb/s ports. Why and when is Intel motherboards going to support more SATA 6Gb/s ports? Something else too, USB 3.0. Neither have many USB 3.0 ports.

  1. Looking at the specifications on the upcoming LGA 2011 motherboards, its seems that 10 SATA III (6Gb/s) ports could be the standard for the X79 chipset.


    As for USB 3.0 I'm with you, I thought that it would have been rolled out quicker then this. I'm a little surprised that the X79 will not have native 3.0 support.
  2. I fount this https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/LGA_2011

    Maximum USB Ports (USB 3.0) 14 (4)
    Maximum SATA Ports (SATA 3.0) 14 (6)
  3. But AMD already has those. Intel should have thrown them more heavily into the market with z68 at the latest.
