We all know well about USB 2.0 technology that we use regularly. Event we found news that Transcend unveiled a USB CD/DVD writer last month. But recently, AsusTek announced that they are going to bring new series motherboard in P7P55D-E line-up. Its previous version P55 that was equipped with Intel Chipset. Comparing with P55 the new motherboard has some difference just adding the new technology in its USB area. It has been equipped with 3.0 technologies instead of 2.0.
The P7P55D-E Premium packs two USB 3.0 ports, which are being powered by a dedicated controller since Intel’s P55 Chipset doesn’t have USB 3.0 support. Along with that, the board comes with 10 standard USB 2.0 ports, two SATA 6Gb/s ports, six SATA 3Gb/s ports, dual Gigabit Ethernet as well as two PCI Express 2.0 x16 ports. That’s a lot of power for the P55 platform, and this would definitely take the board’s price north of $200 when released.
So, it is a revolution in side of the IT product. The motherboards will be fully compatible with the new released operating system by Microsoft in that third quarter of last month windows 7. At the same time AsusTek also brought USB extension card which is also have 3.0 USB.
