Motherboards - Is USB 3.0 Available on Any?

  1. We have been asked to build six additional computers, with the stipulation that they have USB 3.0. We know that USB 3.0 is on the way, but we were unaware that any were sold with ports for USB 3.0.
    Can anyone give us an update? Along with a recommendation of which board, if they are available. I don't find any from our vendor.

    Sorry, but those boards all show USB 2.0, not 3.0.

    Correction. Those motherboards found from the Google search show they are "USB ready" meaning they will work when USB 3.0 is issued... but are not sold with USB 3.0 working, unless I misread the sites you yanks use.

    yup google did me proud,but the gigabyte one is usb3 as well as usb2

    Seems they show as 12*usb2 then 2*usb3 .....still looks to be too new for cheap mainstream pc building.

    It's best not to buy a MB with usb3 yet. the prices are high, the tech is very young and the devices that support usb3 are also expensive. try waiting till summer or just buy a pci card with usb3.

    tomshardware just ran a feature comparing a gigabyte mb with usb 3 and an asus mb with usb 3 - looking good.
