    Re: News - Intel stifling USB 3.0?

    Intel's chipset designers are focused on improving the Nehalem CPU architecture's new QPI and DMI buses, and on implementing double-speed, 5GHz PCI Express 2.0 and 6Gb/s Sata. Intel believes USB 3.0 is less of a priority than these
    Excuse me if I sound naive but surely it's not that big a thing for a company of Intel's size to assign a few of the workers in the "chipset" department to look at USB 3.0.

    USB is such a prevalent technology that I woud have thought implementing added features would be seen as a priority. (Even more so than "double-speed" PCIe 3.0 (or whatever), for instance.)

    Perhaps they would rather give light peak a chance. The more USB3.0 is delayed, the more likely light peak will overtake it.

    USB 3.0 won't be integrated with the chipset until later BUT you will find in on some expensive mainboards/computers (using a PCE-E link) with extra chips or add on card.
