Windows 7: Intel delays USB 3 chipsets until 2012

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.

If they can come out with Light Peak soon with devices available that support it, then I might forgive them.
