Windows 7: Motherboard Support Website Provides Several USB3.0 Driver Choices?

Motherboard Support Website Provides Several USB3.0 Driver Choices?

My computer runs USB3.0 well, however, USBTreeView shows there is no SuperSpeed, only HighSpeed.

Look at my motherboard support page, there are two choices for USB3.0. In trying to solve
why no Superspeed I, of course, went to this page. Which one/s do I choose?
In this pic, mind you, these are both listed with regards to my Operating System as well (win 7 64).


Can't figure out how to get Superspeed running. USB3.0 is of course turned on within my BIOS, I've checked that.

You should be able to find out the exact driver needed by going into Device Manager, looking at the properties on the USB device listing, and getting the VEN and DEV numbers.

Right-click on the USB listing, and choose Properties. Look around on the Details tab for something like this:


In this example, the Vendor number (VEN) is 10EC, and the Device number (DEV) is 8168. (Yours will be different.)

The go to, do a Device search (with the device number). One or more results will be shown - select all which have a match on both the vendor and device numbers. Follow the links shown, and you will be able to find the driver needed.

USB tree view does not designate any "super speed". I have USB 3.1, 3.0 and 2.0 ports. See my screenshot

Why doesn't Microsoft support USB3.0?
G'day, We all know that in order to use USB3.0 ports, we need to install 3rd party drivers (e.g. Etron, NEC etc.). Sometimes this can be a real pain in the bum. With the increasing popularity of cheap USB3 storage devices, it seems logical to me that Microsoft would write and support their own...
