Intel Planning Some Native – Adding USB 3.0 Chipset

If rumors are to be true, Intel will be adding a USB 3.0 chipset to their winter 2010 lineup.  The Intel Developer Forum is expected to showcase an Intel Cougar Point chipset for desktops.

USB 3.0, Intel

For a bit, it was said Intel will forgo the the USB 3.0 chipset in favor of LightPeak technology, but maybe that technology has hit a bump in the road?  Odd to have Intel flip-flop like this…or wait, maybe not.Currently integrators are turning to a third OEM for the USB 3.0 like NEC, but the Intel native would help reduce expense of motherboard manufacturers and speed the adoption of USB 3.0 technology into laptops, desktops and tablets.
