Since this thing is gonna pump more power out to devices and negate the need for external power, is a power supply upgrade in order? Or will this only be in extreme cases?

We are talking increases of millivolts. Not anything big enough to even think about needing a new PSU.

My cynical side expects USB 3.0 v1.0 to have problems in the first batches, so I'm going to wait a bit before I get a MB with USB 3.0 onboard.  I may just go the PCI card route for it instead, although I'm not sure that will have power issues or not as well.

They've kinda backed themselves into a corner on this one - what will USB 4.0 be called? Or 5.0?
