GigabyteTechnology and Asustek are eager to move us forward. USB 3.0 technology is still on the fringe of things. The new standard is vastly superior in every way to USB 2.0, but it will take a while for 3.0 to gain widespread use. Digitimes reports that Gigabyte and Asus are both going to push for strong 3.0 product shipments in 2010. Gigabyte plans to ship 5 million USB 3.0 motherboards in 2010.
Asus says that 25-35% of the motherboards they ship in 2010 are expected to be USB 3.0 compatible. Both companies also intend to push USB 3.0 support in their notebooks. Gigabyte's N, U and G-series models will start to pack USB 3.0 soon, while their entry-level models will wait until 2011. Asus will launch the Eee PC 1018P, 1016P, 1015PE and EB1501U Eee Box with USB 3.0 this year.
