I was disappointed when I heard that it would be 2011 before Intel really started to support USB 3.0 natively in its chipsets. That doesn't mean that you will have to wait until then to take advantage of USB 3.0, it just means that you will probably need an add-in card to do so.

Once you get that add-in card installed, Vantec has announced that it will have a full line of USB 3.0 products for you to use. The company will be offering 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch HDD enclosures that use the USB 3.0 interface.

The new interface will allow for data speeds of 5Gbps or 625Mbps and the devices are fully USB 2.0 and 1.1 backwards compatible too. That means if you need to access your data on a machine lacking USB 3.0 you will be able too. Pricing and availability are unknown at this time on the new product line.
