I suppose it means on what you consider "Native". For Windows 7 the Intel chipset drivers have a USB3 driver that works just fine.

Now most people usually install the chipset driver or it's done via windows update in some cases - so I suppose the meaning "Native driver" is a bit vague. For instance when installing Windows 7 it found and loaded drivers for an HP printer without me having to look for a separate download.

Anyway those INTEL ones work if you have the relevant hardware which is quite common.

They don't always work. I've had my Haswell rig for over two months now and still can't get my front two USB3.0 ports to run at proper speeds. USB3.0 has been a pain for me for ages, be it PCI-E cards or motherboard headers, so I can see why native drivers would be extremely beneficial.

Windows 7 Professional SP1 - x64 [Non-UEFI Boot]

The only time i plugged a device in my one of USB 3.0 ports , this device wouldn't start as the driver was not adapted. That was my gamepad with the MS XBox Controller. Now i'm just afraid to use those USB3.0 ports with USB 2.0 devices...such a waste unless renewing some of my already well working USB 2.0 devices!

PS: I'm glad some will have those new things when they'll build their new PC Case!
I'll have to wait a bit make my stuff used!
