USB 3.0 to be an Intel exclusive?

Posted on Thursday, Jun 05 2008 @ 17:32 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
FUD Zilla heard at Computex that Intel will not share the USB 3.0 technology with its competitors, at least not for a while.
This is not the first and only time, but this means that at this time you cannot expect any USB 3.0 designs based on Intel's reference spec design from anyone but Intel. The way it should work, Intel should share this technology and AMD, VIA and Nvidia would get the chance to make its own USB 3.0 chipsets.

Well, that simply is not going to happen, at least not anytime soon, as least we don’t see that happening in this year. Intel was quite specific to some of its partners where they said that Intel will be the only one with USB 3.0 for a while.
