The VL810 is based on 80nm fabrication technology and includes power management features such as the ability for "devices to communicate latency tolerance to the host and for links to enter progressively lower power states when link partners are idle." The hub will be demoed during the Lunch@Piero's media event at CES on January 7 and 8.
Since motherboards ship with a plethora of USB ports (though most upcoming boards only have around two USB 3.0 ports), USB hubs are a bit niche these days -- not to mention the fact that there are very few USB 3.0 products currently available. How would you put Via's VL810 SuperSpeed hub controller to good use?
