Intel X68 rumor issueing USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gbps in Q2 2010?
Weird -- at an Intel press-conference last week Intel clearly stipulated that for the 1020 line of products USB3.0 and SATA 6GBPs would not become available. However according to a report by Japanese tech site ASCII we may see USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gbps support from Intel a lot sooner than expected.
IF so then Intel is working on a Tylersburg refresh that will offer SATA 6Gbps and USB 3.0 support sometime next quarter in the form of the X68 + ICH11 chipsets.
There's also some information about the P65, H65 and Q65 chipsets, these new models will reportedly arrive in Q1 2011. They will introduce DMI 2.0 (5GT/s), SATA 6Gbps and USB 3.0. Check out the thumbnail.
