MSI to refresh its X99S motherboard line with USB 3.1

MSI is planning to refresh its X99S series with the X99A lineup, which will introduce support for USB 3.1. This new USB standard offers a bandwidth of up to 10Gbps.
One confirmed model from the new lineup is the X99A Gaming 9 ACK. This board offers two USB 3.1 type-A ports, which are 100% backwards compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0, and are driven by an ASMedia ASM1352R controller. This chip is wired to the X99 PCH over PCI-Express 2.0 x2, which is just enough bandwidth for 10 Gb/s downstream.
AnandTech did some preliminary testing with the MSI X99A Gaming 9 ACK motherboard and reports the new standard offers big performance increases versus USB 3.0.
