USB3 upgrade cards emerge
Taiwanese manufacturer Good Way is using the NEC USB3.0 chipset for a range of cards to support the high speed interface with the launch of Windows 7 next month.
Known for USB peripherals in Taiwan, Good Way will exhibit at the Hong Kong Electronics Autumn Edition in October, showing several USB3.0 products which will be launched by end of September.
The first USB3.0 products offered by Good Way will allow users to keep their existing hardware while upgrading to USB3.0, solving the Host compatibility issues for both Desktop and Notebook computers.
With a USB3.0 PCIe card, a desktop PC may be upgraded with two USB3.0 ports, while a USB3.0 Express card offers the same upgrade for notebook PCs.
Both of these cards are compliant to the high speed USB3.0 specifications, with the maximum data transfer rate up to 5Gbps, and with downward compatibility to USB 1.1 and USB 2.0.
