People have been accusing Intel of holding back the specs on USB 3.0 controllers, possibly so they themselves will have more time to design for it. But today they let fly a press release saying the specs were now available and would be released for free, as planned. The release includes some kind words from AMD, despite that company’s vocal criticism of Intel earlier.
As Intel’s Fall Developer Forum is nigh, it wouldn’t be too risky to speculate that USB 3.0 will make its glorious debut there. I’m looking forward to some 600MB/s transfer speeds, oh hell yes.
