USB 3.0 and CES 2010

I'm off to CES for the first time in 5 years and I must say that I'm more than just a little excited about this trip! This year we are focused on a technology that is expected to be one of the hot topics of CES 2010 - USB 3.0. GIGABYTE is in a leading position amongst motherboard vendors because we were first to bring USB 3.0 onboard motherboards to market and are currently shipping 13 models. This will increase to 25 models by the end of January. This is significant because it means that GIGABYTE is driving new technologies down into the mainstream and even entry level segment, i.e. not only keeping the new tech for the high-end segment. This, we expect, will result in greater market share in the onboard USB 3.0 motherboard space.

As a leader in the USB 3.0 motherboard segment, we are working with USB 3.0 chip and device vendors to ensure compatibility between their devices and our motherboards and also tweaking performance for the best customer experience. Hence we launched the GIGABYTE USB 3.0 microsite: www.usb3motherboard.com. Check it out, it has info about USB 3.0, GIGABYTE USB 3.0 products and it also lists some exciting 3rd party USB 3.0 products that we tested for compatibility with our motherboards.

Stay tuned as we update media reviews and USB 3.0 partner products as they complete their testing.
