Be nice to see if this affected Crossfire or SLI performance as the Gigabyte solution does.

Good review as usual though Rich

It all depends on how many slots you have available. With P55 having 16 lanes available, taking 4 up with the SATA6 card will have some effect on SLI performance, if indeed you have a spare slot to begin with on P55. X58 however has more lanes so SLI/xfire performance will not be affected unless you intend on running 2x dual GPU cards that require the full 16 lanes or indeed triSLI/crossfireX.

Amazes me that the population on a close up look is for USB. The parts are ofc missing.

I did think, looking at another manufacturer, that the un-soldered bits were for eSATA of sorts. Apparently not.

Nice review.

Not a bad price tbh. Online stores may massage that a little. Wouldn't be too suprized if a fully populated version comes out afterwards. They're *******s for doing that. Bring out the lesser - get u to buy it - then out comes the trump card.

Great idea for those on older tech but still want the speed. Once some drives come out at a decent price, or I pick up a 6G capable SSD I may grab this too

I'd be interested to see this card with a RAID setup of SSD's.

Just found out there will be an add-in card that does USB 3.0 as well - It'll be released at the same time.

It's already been mentioned in the review

the much hyped Asus U3S6 which DOES have USB3 was expected to retail around the $30 so I would expect this card to come in a little cheaper.

Breaking news - on the grapevine ofc - is that MSI are disregarding both SATA 6g and USB 3.0 for this generation of mobos.

When the full articles appear as to their reasonage, u'll understand why.

It's not a good article, but I have known that Intel aren't packaging USB3.0 for a while.
