If you’ve been waiting for USB 3.0, Asus has announced a new range of motherboards that offer up true USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gb/s data performance. The Asus Xtreme Design P7P55D-E Series motherboard has onboard support, while the ASUS Xtreme Design P7P55D Series uses the Asus U3S6 PCIe x4 expansion card to offer the latest USB and SATA data transfer capabilities. Transferring a 20GB HD movie now takes less than 70 seconds, while a 4MB song requires less than 0.01sec.
Both come with the Intel P55 Express chipset that supports the latest LGA 1156 socket for Intel Core i7/Core i5 Processors and exclusive Hybrid Technology (Hybrid Processor, Hybrid Phase, and Hybrid OS) for intelligent performance enhancement, active cooling, and rapid online access.
Of course, both support Microsoft Windows 7.
