New ASUS USB 3.0 mainboards have record speeds

ASUS on Wednesday showed off one of the first USB 3.0 mainboards ever, the P7P55D/P7P55D-E, which also has a SATA 6Gbps interface for what's claimed to be record-fast transfer speeds: ASUS estimates that a 20GB HD movie takes less than 70 seconds to transfer at peak speed even with the new USB connection. Both use ASUS's hybrid processor, hybrid phase and hybrid OS technologies for faster overall performance with the ability to overclock chips, control active cooling and provide instant-on Internet access, respectively.

The ASUS Xtreme Design P7P55D-E Series motherboard has onboard support for bptj USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gbps, while the ASUS Xtreme Design P7P55D relies on a separate U3S6 PCIe x4 expansion card for the high-speed connections. Either uses Intel's P55 Express chipset and takes both Core i5 and Core i7 processors.

The P755D-series mainboards will ship with Windows 7 drivers, making them ready for the new OS out of the box. Pricing and shipping dates haven't been announced.
