USB 3.0 is quickly on the road to becoming a standard issue item and Asus is helping it along in a big way. The computer manufacturer just announced that its adding the faster interface to every PC computer it makes. Yup, that includes Eee netbooks and the Eee box.
Of course not all of these products will initial be able to take full advantage of USB 3.0’s 5Gbps max throughput as other computer components might not be able to keep up. However as Moore’s law keeps marching on dragging chipsets and hard drives along with it, we’ll eventually see netbooks and nettops transferring files quicker than eSATA today.
