"while AMD and Intel work on baking SuperSpeed USB 3.0 support into their chipsets"

AMD chipsets have been certified USB3 for quite a while now, and are already selling. Look for any A70M or A75 platform.



When USB 3.0 hits 1000-2000 products on the open market (I'm talking under $300, since all else can't be described as for the average consumer), that's when we'll probably see better compatibility and faster speeds. I don't think USB 3.0's specified speed has yet been completely saturated by any device so far, and it's not worth upgrading to until we see that it's the best among other alternatives (such as ThunderBolt and various prototype interfaces).
