USB 3.0 devices are slowly trickling out, but who actually has any USB 3.0 ports to take advantage of them? Those in the market for a new PC or motherboard can get the new standard, but everyone else has to wait. Well, unless they have $40 lying around.
Tokyo-based electronics maker Greenhouse will be releasing a PCI Express PC interface card with two USB 3.0 ports. The firm is claiming the card will be capable of full 5 Gbps transfer speeds. Only time will tell if real world speeds will be that good. The card will be compatible with Windows XP, Vista, and 7. At a mere $40, it’s worth a shot.
