Asus P6X58: First USB 3.0 motherboard canceled
Marvell's USB 3.0 chip seems to cause problems. Asus has completely removed the P6X58 motherboard from the product array. Although the Marvell chip has not been named as the cause, it is most likely to be the reason for the decision.
The Asus P6X58 could have been the first motherboard with the new USD 3.0 standard. Two ports supporting USB 3.0 Superspeed had been welded on the board, but Asus has canceled the motherboard for now. Asus has not revealed the reason for this decision, but speculations about Marvell's USB 3.0 chip, which is said to have caused severe problems, don't seem to have appeared from nowhere. It is expected that the motherboard will be overhauled and shipped with an Fujitsu USB 3.0 chip at a later time.
Asus had introduced the P6X58 at the Computex for the first time. Now some more detailed pictures of the X58 motherboard, which will support USB 3.0 as well as SATA 3, have been dug up.
