NVIDIA's Brian Burke told the press that the delay of USB 3.0 to 2011 was a direct consequence of the fact that NVIDIA will not be able to launch chipsets for Intel's latest processors:
“Nvidia nForce chipsets have traditionally been full of innovative features, even better than Intel's own chipsets. […] However, it has been widely reported that Nvidia will not be making any new chipsets for the Intel platform until our dispute with Intel is resolved,” said Brian Burke, Nvidia’s public relations manager for GeForce Notebook and CUDA consumer products, in an brief interview with TGDaily web-site.
“We [have also] learned that Intel is postponing USB 3.0 introduction until 2011. With no competition in chipsets, it seems Intel has decided that innovation is not needed for USB any time soon. With no one to push Intel to innovate, PC enthusiasts are left with Intel chipsets and the features and performance they deliver, or lack there of,” said Mr. Burke.

Not that Nvidia was "much" competition, but lack of competition entirely makes Intel a naughty boy and back to their same old tricks. Intel gives you innovation when the good and feel like it, not in a timely fashion.
Wonder why the US gov't is investigating Intel again?
