Nec USB 3.0 chip rakes in dough while Intel stays silent
Cebit 2010: First come first served
While walking around Cebit looking for the latest and greatest in innovations, we couldn’t help but notice that all the motherboards supporting USB 3.0 derive support from NEC’s D720200F1 chip.
It seems that the company has once again profited from being the first one to deliver a product on the market, as the company has been the first to deliver the world's first USB 2.0-compliant host controller chip as well.
The absence of Intel’s solution has caused many a frown, but most frowns should currently come from Intel as NEC seems to sell these babies like hotcakes. The fact is that USB 3.0 is the latest feature that everyone wants on their motherboards, and with the bulk price of $15, we’re pretty sure that NEC’s not wary of Intel's "speedy" response routines.
