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 :p


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.
