I don't recall seing a card that will do both. You may try looking for 2 cards. I'm pretty sute you can find an X1 USB 3.0, then look for a sata3 card.

The only card that I've seen on the net is an ASUS card. But it's only for ASUS boards.

It's not feasible for companies to put out that type of card when for a little more money, consumers can get a board that has it all.

That card should work in a PCI-e 4 lane slot on any motherboard, not just Asus.

I stand corrected, it does work with other boards.
Definitely check reviews, though, before purchasing.

It is the same solution Asus put on their P55 motherboards. The Marvell 6 Gb/s chip isn't as fast as new Intel 6Gb/s, but then again you can't get the Intel on a card, and Marvell is the only other game in town. It also (by consensus of investigations by people) doesn't support TRIM. However most SSD garbage collection is quite adequate for most users. I haven't seen a drop in performance in a months of use.

I am satisfied with the Marvell on my Asus motherboard. I get sequential reads of 350 MB/s (max you can get with SATA 3 Gb/s is 260 MB/s) and it is quite stable with either the Marvell or Microsoft AHCI drivers.

I don't think Asus is producing the card anymore, but here are newegg reviews:

It is also unavailable at Amazon. Don't know if it could even be had.

I just got an Asus P5E3 Motherboard for free. I want a x4 card since this board has a dull x16 lane running a x4. So if the bandwidth is there I might as well use it. That card is know to work great. I look around and buy one as soon as I can. Thanks for the help.
