Asus First To Feature USB 3.0 With P6X58 MotherboardS

Asus is set to release the P6X58 Premium motherboard which features two USB 3.0 "SuperSpeed" ports. The board also supports a Core i7 processor, six DDR-3 slots, 3 PCI-Express slots, and a SATA 3.0 interface capable of 6Gb/sec transfer speeds.

Asus has yet to announce pricing and release date information, and no benchmarks have been carried out. Early adopters are going to be disappointed with the lack of available hardware capable of harnessing USB 3.0's super speeds—but they can take solace in the sweet blue color scheme of the new ports while looking down at the masses' blah gray connectors.
