    According to this article from digitimes, Intel is not planning to support USB 3.0 for Huron River, the platform for Sandy Bridge processors dedicated to mobile.
    ntel had indeed planned to integrate natively USB 3.0 platform for its future Chief River in 2012.

    Not surprising; Intel wants people to go to LightPeak.

    Intel hasn't confirmed anything about USB in Cougar Point and Huron River. This article says there will be native support for USB 3.0.

    I guess we'll have to wait for CES to get the official note, so many articles are fighting against each other.

    why is everyone so interested in usb3.0 , in reality its just 10%faster then usb2.0 which means usb3.0 is still slower then firewire 800 in reality as it highly depending on processor power , yes in theory its faster , but only in theory
