what is the difference between ASMedia® USB 3.0 controller and Intel® Z77 chipset usb 3. consider the mobo p8z77 v and the v pro
ASMedia® USB 3.0 controller : *7
2 x USB 3.0 port(s) (2 at back panel, blue)
Intel® Z77 chipset : *7
4 x USB 3.0 port(s) (2 at back panel, blue, 2 at mid-board)
Intel® Z77 chipset :
10 x USB 2.0 port(s) (2 at back panel, black, 8 at mid-board)
but pro has 4x usb 3 ports (asmedia)
also if the case has 2 usb ports at front,then which would u consider. usually how many usb ports do a case have ( sum of front and back)
if the motherboard support usb 3 then should the case also have usb 3 port,. pls suggest some good mid tower budget cases. planning for a i5 3750k,asus p8z77 v mobo,gtx 660ti gpu system, is there a need to go for the full tower..
Intel is Native and ASMedia is not native and adds a fractional amount of latency as an add-on chipset. Otherwise the differences can be bandwidth, the native Intel will have full bandwidth whereas the ASMedia is shared. For most folks it won't make any difference.
