The upcoming AMD chipsets will support for USB 3.0, making it easier for authors to add to the PC using the interconnect ports for laptops.
Integration of the USB 3.0 on AMD chipsets A70M A75 and was described as the guidelines by the USB Implementers Forum, which is a standards-setting organization USB. Integration will authors ‘hardware’ seamlessly include allowing “USB 3.0, the organization said Wednesday.
New chipsets are already shipping to PC makers, said Phil Hughes, an AMD spokesperson on an e-mail. More details about chipsets and USB 3.0 support will be provided later, Hughes said.
And USB 3.0-compatible chipsets, the future laptops, uses AMD’s Fusion processors to which the CPU and GPU provides integrated into one chip. AMD has already started shipping the Fusion chips code-named Llano mainstream PCs, which will become available later quarter. AMD Fusion current C-and E-series chips for netbooks and pieces using chipsets with integrated USB 3.0 support.
As its predecessor USB 2.0, USB 3.0 allows data between computers and devices, such as storage drives, but 10 times faster. USB 3.0 data transfer speeds up to 5 gigabits per second.
Hewlett-Packard-h last year was one of the first-to-USB 3.0 ports add to laptops, however, had a separate controller to confirm. USB 2.0 is dominant, while USB 3.0 is available as an option especially for some high-end laptops.
Integration of the USB 3.0 chipset reduces the need for separate control. This integration provides a strong impetus for the device makers to develop and release products that are compatible with the new standard, said Jeff Craft Raven, president of the USB, as they said on Tuesday.
AMD rival Intel is not integrated into the USB 3.0 support for its chipsets. Intel was not immediately available for comment.
