AMD adds USB 3.0 support to chipsets28 April 2011 11:47:41
Devices using chipsets from AMD could be favoured by those who buy Verbatim's new Store 'n' Go USB 3.0 Flash Drive following an announcement from the manufacturer this week.
It has been confirmed that AMD has become the first major microprocessor manufacturer to have USB 3.0-capable chipsets certified by the USB Implementers Forum.
This means that AMD has stolen the initiative from its larger rival Intel, which does not plan to incorporate USB 3.0 technology until 2012 at the earliest, reports channelregister.co.uk.
Computing enthusiasts could now favour AMD, with a number of USB 3.0 devices beginning to emerge onto the market.
One such device is Verbatim’s new Store 'n' Go USB 3.0 Flash Drive, which was unveiled earlier this month.
The drive supports transfer rates of up to 70MB/s write and 120MB/s read when paired with a USB 3.0 host system, while it is available in capacities of 16GB, 32GB and 64GB.
