ASUS USB 3.1 TYPE-A CARD overview

  • 1Description

Connect up to two USB 3.1 devices to your Windows-compatible system using the USB 3.1 Dual Type-A PCIe Card from ASUS. USB 3.1 supports data transfer rates up to 10 Gb/s and this card has a dedicated controller for each port. This allows each port to achieve speeds up to 10 Gb/s, instead of having to share that bandwidth between the two USB 3.1 ports. Additionally, this card is backwards compatible with USB 3.0, 2.0, and 1.1 devices.

This USB 3.1 card has a PCI Express x4 interface that runs at x2 and is compatible with PCIe x16, x8, and x4 slots. While it is compatible with 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows 8.1, 8, and 7, this USB 3.1 card may only be used with select ASUS Rampage, X99, Z97, Sabertooth, Gryphon, and Maximus motherboards.

This USB 3.1 card also supports ASUS USB 3.1 Boost technology, which helps increase sequential read and write speeds. Please note that to fully support USB 3.1, you will need to update your BIOS to its latest version and install a USB 3.1 driver.

    ASUS USB 3.1 TYPE-A CARD reviews

    USB 3.1 Dual Type-A PCIe Card is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working great with my 2009 MacPro tower Was a little worries about trying this in my 2009 MacPro but it works great. I'm running at USB 3.0 speeds right now but hope to have a 3.1 drive to try out soon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice card. The card is well engineered. I have Windows 10 and a new Asus TUF Sabertooth 990 R3 (the most expensive model, Military Grade). Asus is not sure if the card is compatible with Windows 10. Don't call them about a solution, they had me download their USB software online. It wiped out my Master Boot Record. I was given a ticket number and was told the supervisor would call back. He did not. I solved the problem myself, it only took 12 hours! I cannot recommend that anyone call Asus tech support.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job! We were looking for a way to decrease workflow, by increasing CF card import times. After a lot of review on PCIe to USB 3.1 cards, decided to purchase the Asus USB 3.1 card to use with an ASRock Extreme Motherboard. Works as desired, no challenges to install or setup. The objective to reduce time it takes to import camera raw files was accomplished using the PCIe USB 3.1 card in concert with new USB 3.1 compliant CF card readers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy peasy installation Took less than a minute to install on Windows 10 pc, was working 10 sec after boot up, did not even have to use the installation CD. Working as expected.
