Intel hasn't been in any real hurry to promote the USB 3.0 standard, instead leaving it up to hardware makers to come up with their own solutions. EVGA, perhaps best known for the company's line of graphics cards, is one of those companies ready to usher in faster USB data transfers
To help do that, EVGA today launched its EU30 PCI-E host card, which adds an additional two USB 3.0 ports to your system. It works with any available PCI-E slot, including x1, x4, x8, and x16, and once plugged in will facilitate data transfers up to 5Gbps.
The low-profile design means it will slip in nicely to your HTPC or mATX LAN box, and of course it's backwards compatible too.
