Future Intel and AMD Chipsets to Support USB 3.0

It’s about time! We had doubts whether Intel would ever integrate native USB 3.0 support on their chipsets since they were rather focused on pushing Thunderbolt recently, but based on the slide below – there’s a good chance there would be. Although there aren’t too many details yet, the upcoming Panther Point will in fact support Superspeed USB 3.0.

While in the other camp, chipmaker AMD has confirmed that their A75 and A70M Fusion chipsets will also support this emerging standard and claiming it’ll be ten times faster (than USB 2.0) at the same time. Again there’s no exact launch date, but all this positive development is definitely a good sign!
