Intel delays USB 3 chipsets until 2012
Hmmmm......saw this story on the register today.
Intel is holding up USB 3.0 adoption by delaying its motherboard chipset until 2012.
The near-universally used USB 2.0 bus is lagging behind externally-attached storage devices, mobile internet devices, digital cameras and camcorders and the simple multi-GB USB sticks because it is too slow. USB 3.0 increases USB speed to 4.8Gbit/s but needs chipsets on notebook and desktop motherboards before it can be widely adopted. Enter Intel or, rather, not.
