Intel May Add USB 3.0 to Chipsets Soon

Posted by at 6:33 am on September 7, 2010

Taiwan’s Commercial Times today claimed that Intel will launch its first native USB 3.0 chipset at next week’s Intel Developer Forum. Its Cougar Point chipset for desktops using Sandy Bridge processors will get the faster bus speeds and USB 3.0. When it would ship wasn’t mentioned, but Intel has already promised a late 2010 launch and is informally expected to ship in November.

Notebooks are likely to get USB 3.0 when the Huron River mobile platform arrives in early 2011.  

USB 3.0 has already found its way into some desktops and notebooks, but Intel has been visibly absent from the technology despite being the creator of USB itself.     AT CES this year USB 3.0 was a hop topic, as well as Intel lack of support.   PC maker have had to get USB 3.0 controllers from frim such as NEC or stay at USB 2.0.

For you non-hardware geeks, sorry for the a post with a ton of porject code wordwors, like “Huron River,” but that is how Intel rolls.
