I am a big proponent of USB 3.0 technology - I had an early test and experience with USB 3.0 hardware last month. In that article I evaluated the performance of the ASUS P7P55D-E Premium motherboard that used the NEC 720200 USB 3.0 controller paired with a USB 3.0 HDD dock. The results were pretty impressive:
Well an interesting post from an OCZ rep seems to indicate that USB 3.0 accessories are coming sooner rather than later. In a post looking for help naming the product, OCZ appears to have developed a prototype USB 3.0 portable solid state drive.
Now if we can only come up with a good name...
And don't forget, if you haven't seen the early performance numbers from USB 3.0 devices, check out our preview here.
