ASMedia to Introduce USB 3.5 Controllers in 2014

ASMedia, an auspicious designer of PCIe bridges, USB 3.0 controllers and Switch IC items, announces the development of a new USB 3.5 controller. According to the preliminary information, this controller is going to support 10 Gb/sec data transfer speed, which is nearly twice higher than current USB 3.0. Earlier the launch of an advanced component was scheduled for late 2014, however, now the company is intended to officially introduce it early next year.

This is primarily explained by the fact that each manufacturer tries to pack its production lineup with models of various calibers. Asus is one of the few companies that restlessly enlarge their motherboard inventory with variegated items, and Vanguard B85 (TUF series) is yet another item for saving users.
