Without chip set support from Intel for USB 3.0 aka SuperSpeed USB, adoption in 2010 will be limited to "a few high-end graphics workstations and consumer systems," said the source. That's because system makers will be forced to buy discrete host controllers for their motherboards, a relatively high cost.
"It's hard to commit to an emerging technology like this when the key silicon enablers are not making it a priority," said the source, referring to Intel. "You get into a chicken-and-egg situation," he added.
