ASUS to release first own USB 3.1-enabled motherboard

According to various online sources ASUS will soon release a new company motherboard that will include the latest USB 3.1 port. The motherboard will be released by the end of this month and will join the company of the high-end Biostar Gaming Z97X and Z97W motherboards.

The nice story ends here as ASUS will add this feature with the help of an external ASMedia USB controller that has not undergone USB-IF certification so there will be some risk in implementing this solution. The name of the motherboard is unclear as of now but we will soon get it anyway. Gigabyte will also launch USB 3.1 motherboards but this manufacturer will wait for ASMedia to get certification. The first USB 3.1 motherboards by Gigabyte will arrive in the summer of 2015.

In case you have not heard of USB 3.1 – this is the latest USB standard and it has been around since the summer of 2013. USB 3.1 reaches data transfer speeds of 10 Gbps, which makes it two times faster than USB 3.0.
