Chief River laptop platform from Intel to deliver USB 3.0 to everyone

Whispers abound that Intel’s Chief River processor platform will make a splash at CES 2011 early next year, taking another whole year before it hits the mass market. What makes the Chief River platform so special? Well, it will supposedly deliver native support for USB 3.0 connectivity, where this Sandy Bridge successor will be based on 22nm Ivy Bridge processors. Of course, with 2012 so far down the road (at least when you take the world of semiconductors into consideration), we do wonder whether other companies would have made mass adoption of USB 3.0 their agenda before Intel outs the Chief River platform.
