ASUS U3S6 USB DRIVER

One noteworthy feature, is while the card is long for a USB 3. So far, this is a clean sweep for the U3S6. While it is longer then most, it still is only a single slot solution as all the controller chips are considered low power, with no bulky heatsinks required to keep them cool. If you remove sequential speed from the equation, as I have already looked in depth at that, what you see is a mild to moderate performance hit for the U3S6 and a moderate performance hit for the Gigabyte. To us, the question becomes why spend the same amount of money on a PCI-E x1 card when an x4 will give you and your system more room to grow and maybe even more performance now? While less than perfect if you are a power user, or even just someone wanting to future proof their system, I can say the this card was a better solution — a product which is more future proof from its x4 interface.

Both of these controller chips are rated for only two ports each and this is the most logical setup with such limited number of options available.

This really does seal the deal as both synthetic and real world tests have consistently shown the Asus U3S6 to be a faster interface card. For an expansion card, the U3S6 is certainly a beefy package measuring a good 4.

With that being said, if you are also looking for SATA 6 capabilities, this card is not an ueb solution unless your existing motherboard is on the extremely short Asus approved motherboard list. So far, this is a clean sweep for the U3S6.

Home Reviews USB 3. In theory, there asud be no single USB 3. In reality, it is doubtful any single device will be able to do this in the near future, but the U3S6 is more future proof then its x1 brethren because of this forward thinking interface. The upside to providing 4 lanes for data throughput is that in theory any of the USB 3.

This versatility coupled with its all black PCB does make for one sexy upgrade. You literally have to either hot plug a drive on to it after the system has booted up, or only have drives attached to the card during POST. This is an extremely minor issue, as the drivers are included on the accompanying CD.
