Folks, USB 3 is here now. Just had to rebuild my machine due to an Antec power supply burning out my motherboard and processor. Sticking with AMD parts because of Intel's insanely elevated prices, I used a GIGABYTE GA-790FXTA-UD5 R motherboard featuring both USB 3 and SATA3. And this was not some exotic ultra-high priced part. Knowing that SATA3 is out and available, it would make little sense to spend significant money on any machine that lacked it. I frankly find it hard to believe that Intel won't have USB 3 support on its boards before a 2011 delivery date for 2012 builds. Especially for video, with its huge file sizes, USB 3 will be in high demand very quickly.
