The world is certainly moving in the direction of USB 3.0, and now HP is claiming to be one of the first to ship a computer with native USB 3.0 ports. Said computers are certain variations of the Envy 15 quad-core notebook, which will then support much faster data transfers of up to 5Gbps. With a native USB 3.0, it can make much better use of the USB 3.0 connection offered by some LaCie and Buffalo drives. It seems that USB 3.0 adoption might be a little slower than expected, as Intel currently doesn’t have a USB 3.0 native chipset just yet, so most companies have to rely on custom controllers from NEC and other vendors.
