Intel's Chief River Will Begin Support for USB 3.0

DigiTimes with its ears to the Taiwanese computer industry have once again found plans of what Intel has in store next year. According to the report, Intel will be following up on Huron River, the Sandy Bridge platform for notebooks expected for early 2011, with a platform codenamed Chief River.

Chief River will run the 22nm Ivy Bridge processors and will finally usher in Intel support for USB 3.0. Mass production of these products are expected to start in September 2011 but not officially rolled out until 2012 (unless the world ends, of course).

For the netbook market, Intel will supposedly have Cedar Trail-M in the second quarter 2011, which will leapfrog the Oak Trail Atom platform that's expected at the end of this year.

    Seriously, if Intel is adding USB 3.0 support to their Chief River platform, is Jobs going to add it as well or still say their users don't need it?

    Given that the target date is December 21st 2012, I think we'll have some USB 3.0 prior to then.
