The ASUS P6X58D Premium motherboard has become the first motherboard to be officially certified by the USB Implementation Forum (USB-IF) to support USB 3.0 features. Based on its superior design and performance, the P6X58D Premium was officially recognized as achieving compliance for USB 3.0 or SuperSpeed USB features on January 5, 2010. This makes it the first in the industry to receive the USB 3.0 certification. With its upgraded data transfer technology, the P6X58D Premium delivers up to 10 times faster data transfers compared to USB 2.0-based motherboards. USB 3.0 is expected to improve the transfer of rich media content and ever-increasing file sizes brought about by rapid innovation in digital devices. The P6X58D Premium is built on the Intel® X58 chipset and the Intel® LGA 1366 socket. It also supports the upcoming 32nm 6-Core CPU.

Supporting Uncompromising USB 3.0 Performance with a Full Range of Motherboards

ASUS has introduced USB 3.0 features to its line of motherboards equipped with the Intel® LGA 1366, Intel® LGA 1156, and AMD AM3 sockets. A unique expansion bridge chip available in some motherboards such as the ASUS P7P55D Series and the U3S6 PCIe expansion card unleashes USB 3.0 performance and supports new SATA 6Gb/s data throughput. This specially-designed onboard IC eliminates transmission bottlenecks, delivering up to 50%* better performance to make it possible to save a 20GB HD movie in less than 70 seconds or transfer a 4MB song in less than 0.01 seconds.
